 About the Book 

When Philip Fletcher made his debut in Simon Shows hilarious black comedy/mystery Murder out of Tune, he was failing as an actor - despite his own high opinion of himself - but brilliantly successful as a killer. Now in Bloody Instructions,MoreWhen Philip Fletcher made his debut in Simon Shows hilarious black comedy/mystery Murder out of Tune, he was failing as an actor - despite his own high opinion of himself - but brilliantly successful as a killer. Now in Bloody Instructions, Fletchers acting fortunes have risen. Hes been given the part of Banquo in an important staging of Macbeth, but hes still forced to play second fiddle to the brattish movie megastar, Richi Calvi, whos in the title role. Of course the two loathe each other, and of course everyone knows it. So when Calvi is found in his dressing room with a dagger between his shoulder blades, Philip knows hell be the likely suspect - especially after hes picked to take Calvis place in the play. When a second body turns up in Fletchers bathtub - the critic whos just trashed his performance - it seems pretty clear someones out to get him. Righteously indignant at being wrongly accused, Philip turns amateur detective - a role for which his life of crime has amply prepared him. Ironic, witty, and clever, Bloody Instructions offers a wickedly funny look a the theatrical world as well as an intricately plotted mystery - another triumph for Simon Shaw.
