A Bullet in the Ballet by Caryl Brahms & S.J. Simon

A Bullet in the BalletThis is a short whodunnit that brings humor much in the same style as any Monty Python sketch. Brahms and Simon weave an interesting mystery novel in which an English detective looks for a murderer within a Russian ballet.

The dancer in the most coveted role is murdered and nearly everyone is a suspect. That includes the other jealous dancers hoping for more time in the limelight. The job for detective Quill becomes more frustrating as witnesses either won’t give him a straight answer or won’t stop talking.

This is a humorous read for anyone, no matter if you’re a fan of the Petroushka or not. This screwball mystery is worth a read.
