Belfoure has woven another wonderful tale involving an architect, Douglas Layton. And England during the early 20th century is always a fascinating landscape. Douglas is very good at his profession but a horrible accident involving the collapse of a theater that he designed destroys his career and puts him in jail. Upon release he struggles to clear his name. Belfloure introduces a varied cast of characters that are sure to delight. I was captivated by all of the unique personalities that were found in the vaudeville theater of the time and totally supported the efforts of Douglas as he gets involved in solving the mystery of the theater collapse. I look forward to the next architectural tale by this marvelous storyteller. Great story!
