Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Opening night at New York's New Globe Theater turns from stage scene to crime scene when the leading man is stabbed to death center stage. Now Eve Dallas has a high profile, celebrity homicide on her hands. Not only is she lead detective, she's also a witness--and when the press discovers that her husband owns the theater, there's more media spotlight than either can handle. The only way out is to move fast. Question everyone and everything...and in the meantime, try to tell the difference between the truth--and really good acting.

Library Journal Review

New York City cop Eve Dallas and her husband, Roark, attend an opening of a performance of Agatha Christie's Witness for the Prosecution at Roark's new theater. Eve is unfamiliar with the classic story, but she responds to it with her cop's instincts and recognizes the perpetrator long before the finale. However, the play ends unexpectedly even for Roark, when the villain is actually killed in the last scene. Eve immediately takes control. With her trusted assistant, Peabody, she must find out who substituted the real knife for the prop and thus caused an actress unwittingly to commit murder. It soon becomes clear that the victim was an evil creep who ruined lives for his own sport. Most of the other actors had reason to kill him, and professional actors are pretty good at playing innocent. Susan Ericksen has become the voice of Eve Dallas for audiobook listeners and continues to delight us with her interpretations-tough, sharp, irritable Eve; warm, melodious Irish Roark; and down-to-earth Peabody. Listeners who are familiar with Christie's work will find Robb's 21st-century version amusing. Recommended for all collections.-Juleigh Muirhead Clark, John D.
