The Opening Night Murders
by James Scott Byrnside

The Opening Night MurdersAbout the book: Chicago. 1935. The Great Depression has brought America to its knees, and the people are dying for some entertainment. Luckily for them, a murder has been scheduled for opening night at The Red Rising Theater. When the lead actress receives a death threat, Detective Rowan Manory and his partner Walter Williams agree to take the case. Neither realizes the curtain is rising on the deadliest and most vexing mystery of their career. There will be 200 witnesses in the seats and not a single suspect on the stage. Could this be the perfect murder? The Opening Night Murders is a thrilling impossible crime novel that will keep you guessing from the first clue right up to the shocking finale.




The story– 4/5

Setting of the book– 4/5

Main Hero– 2.9/5

Smexy Times?– non

Overall – 3,5/5 stars


Okay, this was a crazy ride! There were so many twists and turns I didn’t expect and that’s really saying something. I loved the setting of the book, could easily imagine where and what’s going on! A good book, easy to read, was interesting. Would recommend.


A person who cannot go to the police is a person who cannot be trusted.
Everyone has something in the past that will not stay quiet.
“No, but women, in general, need to be more confident.”
“I don’t need to be more confident. My confidence is perfect.”
Walter said, “Money is thicker than blood.”
“I miss my long locks. Look at me.” She pouted. “I’m a little Roman boy come to life.”
Timothy Brown’s head remained buried in the morning paper. “I call her Claudius. Still ought to need a shield for the full effect though.
“What do you want me to say?”
“I called you because I wanted your advice.”
“Bull. You called me because you wanted me to tell you it was a great idea. Well, it’s not.”
I received an advance review copy for free, and I am leaving this review voluntarily.
