Robert Barnard is no longer with us, but his books are still great reading. This one is the first of a series featuring Charlie Peace, who plays a small, but key role, in finding the murderer. The characterizations of the actors and singers involved in the festival that is central to the plot are so accurate that the lead detective's attitude, when he finds that he'll be trying to get clues by interviewing these "arty types", is fully justified. Everyone seems to have something to hide, so sorting it all out is great fun for the reader, if not for the police. I was completely surprised to find out "whodunit".
