From Publishers Weekly
First published in the U.K. in 1996, the engrossing third entry in Maitland's series to feature David Brock and Kathy Kolla (Spider Trap, etc.) is at last available in the U.S. The day before Kathy begins her new job in Scotland Yard's Serious Crime Branch, she gets a call from her superior, Chief Inspector Brock, that her detective services are needed sooner than expected. Angela Hannaford, a pleasant young woman who taught Sunday school, has been brutally stabbed to death in her parents' South London home, her face mutilated. Kathy, who becomes the head of the investigating team, traces clues to other recent murders of women who all eerily resemble one another, and soon discovers that a theater troupe may be the critical link in the Hannaford case. But as Kathy moves closer to finding the perpetrator, she also inches closer to danger. Maitland does a fine job developing complex, interesting characters within a sinister, well-paced plot. (Sept.)

A beautiful young blonde has just been found brutally murdered in her London bed, with no known suspects or reasons. Some police sleuthing reveals an assortment of other brutal young blonde murders that are all still going unsolved. Finally Brock and Kolla see a possible, if highly unusual connection.
Highly recommended for longtime Brock & Kolla fans. And a good starting place for those new to the series as well.
Kathy ends up becoming personally involved with this theater group, when her older aunt comes to live with her, and gets involved in the troupe as a costume maker. Kathy is talked into assisting in putting on the play, which allows her to more closely observe the members of the troupe. She sees how the emotions of the actors and actresses become intertwined both on stage and off.
The twists in this book were thrilling, and somewhat odd. Some you didn't expect, which I love in a book such as this...you don't always want to be able to tell where the author is going.
Brock and Kolla are quite a team. the further into the series you go, the more you respect their abilities and insight into the not so pleasant worlds of the murderers they are pursuing.
