Biographer Jean-Claude Keyes has twice before stumbled unwillingly into murder, once among the professionals of the Shakespearean Festival in Stratford, Ontario, Canada, and on another occasion while snowbound in a motel on the outskirts of the same town. In DOWNSTAGE DEAD, Keyes becomes involved with an enticing woman named Kaylyn Dionne, a Stratford Festival production of the vampire classic, COUNT DRACULA, and - yet again - with murder. On a most unusual "first date," Keyes and Kaylyn discover the bodies of her sister and another member of the acting troupe, murdered horrifically. But the show must go on, even in the ensuing atmosphere of fear, distrust, and confusion. Bound by loyalty, and perhaps by love, Keyes again finds himself ensnared in the circumstances and aftermath of violent death.
