Camille Dargus is a successful New York jewelry designer with a roster of high-end clients, a glamorous loft in Soho, and a weakness for handsome young men. One night, at a boring society function, she picks up Billy, one of the waiters, and brings him home. But there’s more to Billy than meets the eye, and before long she’s summoned her security guard, Ted, to get him out of her apartment. And so begins a game of cat-and-mouse involving a mysterious jewel, reversals, crosses and double-crosses, murder, and a devastating journey into the past that Camille has tried to leave behind.
"DEADLY MURDER is a delicious 3 hander with more intrigue twists and turns than an Agatha Christie novel... thoroughly entertaining, darkly comic..." UK Theatre Network
"Akin to a game of chess, tantalising the audience with every twist and turn." The Stage (UK)
"Between curtain-up and climax there are enough twists, bluffs, and blind alleys to satisfy the most demanding aficioanado fo the genre." The Publc Reviews (UK)
“A challenging puzzle that draws us closer and happily keeps us on the edge of our seats. A madcap journey of intrigue and duplicity and … occasional wry hilarity.” - The Oregonian
"A nerve shredding, intricately plotted thriller, full of twists, turns and double crosses...[a] refreshingly modern thriller. – Worthing Herald
