Exit Stage Left


When the body of Lancelot Foley, a well known actor, is discovered in an excavation in a fashionable Chelsea street one snowy February morning, Detective Chief Inspector Harry Brock is assigned the case. 

Aided by Detective Sergeant Dave Poole and Kate Ebdon, his Australian-born detective inspector, Brock discovers that Foley’s life was a little more complicated than was at first thought.

Foley’s actress wife, Vanessa Drummond, is also leading a double life and is not as innocent as she would like the police to believe.

A second murder in Harrow and a third in Paris keep the police on both sides of the English Channel guessing until a fourth violent death a short distance from the famous Arc de Triomphe in the heart of Paris makes everything clear.
