Not quite as good as the earlier Homer Kelly mysteries--as another reviewer pointed out, the murderer was painfully obvious and I'm usually miserable at guessing whodunit. I'm giving it an extra star because I have fond memories of the Christmas Revels (a very real production, though somewhat fictionalized here) and her descriptions of the performance and audience reaction is a wistful trip back in time for me.
