DEATH OF AN ANGEL

Theatre background for a slick yarn in which Captain Weigand manipulates the data available, Pam North is as irrelevant and muddling as ever, and Jerry quietly works behind the scenes with the right word at the right time. A playboy, one of a show's ""angels"", is murdered just as the 100th night marks the turn towards success, and his announcement that he is marrying the star of the show threatens its future. There are almost too many people with something at stake in the continued success- almost too many opportunities combined with motives. But in the predictable North-cum-Weigand fashion, crisply tailored, the windup picks the guilty man.
