I read this book about 21-Dec-2003. This is the first time I've read this book. The book is copyright 1959. This note was last modified Monday, 05-May-2014 22:28:31 PDT.
This is book 21 of the "Roderick Alleyn" series.
This note contains spoilers for the book.
Unfortunately, I noticed the scent sprayer and the pesticide spray bottle early on, which made the plot pretty much clear from the beginning. And, looking back, there's a scent sprayer on the cover with a skull-and-crossbones tag. Kind of of a big spoiler!
Still a very nice collection of character sketches, though. This is another theater book, though the action never actually moves into a theater.
