About the book:

Like every actor, Ivy Meadows knows that Macbeth is cursed. But she’s finally scored her big break, cast as an acrobatic witch in a circus-themed production of Macbeth in Phoenix, Arizona. And though it may not be Broadway, nothing can dampen her enthusiasm—not her flying caldron, too-tight leotard, or carrot-wielding dictator of a director.

But when one of the cast dies on opening night, Ivy is sure the seeming accident is “murder most foul” and that she’s the perfect person to solve the crime (after all, she does work part-time in her uncle’s detective agency). Undeterred by a poisoned Big Gulp, the threat of being blackballed, and the suddenly too-real curse, Ivy pursues the truth at the risk of her hard-won career—and her life.

  4. I think a poisoned Big Gulp is funny murder weapon. Thank you for the chance!

  5. Sounds like a great book. Thanks

  6. Love the clever details to this one, thanks.

  7. OK, I admit that the idea of a circus-themed production of Macbeth in Phoenix cracked me up. Every actor's dream job to be sure. With all of Shakespeare at her disposal Cindy certainly has a wealth of sources to draw on. Thanks for the chance to win Macdeath.

  8. When imagining the wackiest conceptualization of Macbeth, the circus theme won hands down (though the book's director did consider "setting the whole thing at sea and making Macbeth a pirate.":)

  9. It sounds like a great series. I just love female sleuth's. I am looking forward to the rest of the series.

  10. What a wonderful series. The author is very creative and talented. Thanks. saubleb(at)gmail(dot)com
