Littleton. It’s a small town of small people where nothing ever happens. Not until this one fateful night.
Walter “Kit” Kitchell has always been small town cop on a lonely beat. He’s never had a case that needed pursuing for more than a minute. But when a gutted body is found clutching the words Westside Players in its cold hand, Kit is reluctantly drawn to the last place he knows anything about – the local community theater.
Theresa “Terri” Esposito is a Westside Player who’s never had her big break (even if she’s finally grabbed a supporting role). When she meets Kit, she’s initially unimpressed. His partner seems the more attractive of the pair. But a pic of the mutilated body set her previously unknown detective skills into full gear and Terri invites Kit into the world where a has-been director and a cold leading lady seems to hold power.
But they’re not the only ones that Terri thinks could have wielded the murder weapon. And will the murderer truly be satisfied with just one body?

“Just shut up for a second. This is serious.”
“Serious,” Marcus repeated with a shake of his head.
“Sam is dead, Marcus.”
There was complete, shocked silence for a second, and then the room erupted again. The place filled with cries of grief and anguished sobs.
Kit looked around to see everyone pour on the stage, from the wings, from the seats. They were asking how and why. Everyone started to cling to the nearest body and wail. He had never seen the family or friend of any vic show this much sorrow at the news that their loved one was never coming home, but maybe this was how it was in theaters.
He removed his glasses and wiped away sweat off his face. Winters took the stage and pulled him aside. His face was registering everything that Kit was thinking.
“Yeah, man,” Kit said.
Marcus fell to the floor. Kit waited for another howl, but heard only a sniffle as the man buried his face in his hands. Okay, sometimes grief was a very private thing. Kit could respect that.
The only person not losing all sense of security was Terri Esposito. She looked around the stage with an amused stare. Kit had never seen anything more heartless. Even if she didn’t particularly care for Sam, how could she not be caught up in the pain of the others? He was. And he saw this kind of thing every day.
Well, maybe not exactly this kind of thing. But a body was a body. And she had gasped at the pic. So what gives?
Kit grabbed her by the arm and turned her towards him. Her face was serene. She looked over his shoulder at Winters and gave him a playful wink.
He had to wonder. Had he found his monster?
