Item description for Death of a Hollow Man (The 2nd Inspector Barnaby Mystery) by Caroline Graham...

Actors do love their dramas, and the members of the Causton Amateur Dramatic Society are no exception. Passionate love scenes, fits of ego, jealous rages, operatic reconciliations--put together, they're better than a paycheck, which is good thing, because no one in this production of Amadeus is getting one. However, even the most theatrically minded have to admit that murdering the leading man in full view of the audience is a bit over the top. Luckily, Inspector Tom Barnaby is in that audience, and while he may lack certain skills as a theater critic, he's just the man to figure out who removed the tape from the "prop" straight-razor, causing the star to slit his own throat downstage-center. With so many dramas playing out, there's no shortage of motives or suspects, including the star's embittered ex-wife and faithless widow, plus secret lovers and jealous understudies galore. Ms. Graham, a former actress, tweaks her collection of community-theater artistes and small-town drama queens with merciless delight, and the reader's only regret will be that, eventually, the curtain must come down on the final page.

Reviews - What do customers think about Death of a Hollow Man (The 2nd Inspector Barnaby Mystery)?

Barnaby "Hollows" Down the Suspects  Dec 1, 2007
When are Tom Barnaby and Inspector Troy going to make their appearance?

This is one of those books that is hard to get into at first, page after page of introducing the soon-to-be suspects as actors and stage assistants in the play "Amadeus." I began to consider putting the book down. However, I started getting interested in spite of myself, trying to figure out what was going to happen and whose fault was it going to be! After the murder, on the stage in full view of Barnaby and Troy, the pace really picked up. The intrigue was so strong, I found myself reading until 4:00 a.m. one morning in order to see who the murderer was!

Another Caroline Graham winner!!
Not One of Her Best  May 12, 2007
I enjoy Caroline Graham's books, as much for their English characters as anything. This is not one of her better books. It drags on, is disjointed, and the conclusion one could not have guessed (usually mystery writers put some clues as to the outcome somewhere earlier).
I made it thru the book but it was not easy.
A great read  May 12, 2007
It is so much fun to read Graham's novels. The writting is so well done and Inspector Barneby and his family
are consistently entertaining , plus the mystery is intriging and has just the right amount of twist and turns to keep you on edge until the last page. I LOVE THIS AUTHOR.
All Midsumer Murders and Touch of Frost  Mar 12, 2007
I thoroughly enjoy any "Midsumer Murders"books or DVD and the same goes for "Touch of Frost"
One of Caroline Graham's early books  Jan 5, 2007
Fair. At least in comparison to Graham's later books. Worth reading, however, if you're interested in character progression and the writerly process.
