A SERIES OF MURDERS
"AS AN ACTRESS, SIPPY STOKES WAS ABSOLUTE DEATH." From the vain leading man to the rock star making his acting debut to the aging writer whose books were being chopped to death on the set of the "Stanislas Braid" TV series, everyone seemed to hold the same opinion of the young female lead. And when she fell victim to a fatal backstage accident, shockingly few tears were shed. While dutifully performing his role as the dumb town constable Sergeant Clump, amateur investigator Charles Paris couldn't help but start asking questions on the side. What he found out made for riveting drama. Sippy Stokes had given someone a very good reason to cast her as a corpse--but her killing was only the opening act.
