The Drama School at Bowmouth College is staging its annual Halloween masquerade, known for being a little unusual. This year it's Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet with a twist--- Romiette and Julio instead. English professor and sometime amateur sleuth Sarah Deane has been recruited to assist backstage with the complicated costume changes.
Drama students are known for being mischievous and high-strung, but this year things are a little more serious: During rehearsals a couple of the student actors pass the time by taking whacks at each other with the stage props, and their horseplay leaves Todd Mancuso, the brilliant actor playing Mercutio, wounded. And when Sarah stumbles upon a badly injured student hidden away in a stockroom on Halloween night, events take a turn for the worse. By the time the production is finally staged, a member of the faculty has been badly injured and a student has been killed. Talk about drama!
Sarah gets involved, of course, to sort out a mess that involves academic politics, angry actors, and student activities gone horribly wrong.

Another exciting story starring professor Sarah Deane. Murder and mayhem occur on a college campus in Maine and Sarah sets out to solve the crime. She is kidnapped, adopts a kitten, befriends a troubled college student and helps put on a sword-filled redo of Romeo and Juliet. This is a winning series filled with memorable characters. The mystery is good as well.

This series pushes my limits for violence and suspense, but this book is full of very angry people. I quit reading. I will try one more, because sometimes a single book in a series is out of the regular pattern.
