This is the first book of Vincent O'Neil's I have read. It's pretty wordy which takes a little bit of wading through, but the book is ingenious.

Then we have a mystery that had happened at Red Bend the spot of the last location of the Mystery show, including the deceiving death/suicides that occurred. And then there is a third mystery where someone is messing with the current writer Jack. Attacks on...more

Talk about plots within plots! I'm not sure how the author even kept them straight ... but he sure did. It's a great concept, the roving mystery theater that incorporates the town into the act, and he pulls it off beautifully, making the characters, the town, and the stories all convincing and engrossing.

His writers arrive months before the performance and live openly in the community, absorbing the local atmosphere and soliciting stories and suggestions from residents as they write the play.

Originally posted on Amazon by Michael McGurk:

Vincent O'Neil has done it again. Death troupe is a new area for this author and his first book (in this specific field) is fantastic. I read almost the entire book in one very long sitting. I just could not put it down. The plot of the book (like the Death Troupe play) does not unfold until the final pages. It will keep you thinking, reading, and wanting more. He showa a wonderful knowledge of the area, acting, character development, and just opserv...more
