Bridgewater Players Presents...


Thriller of the Year


by Glyn Jones


Successful crime novellist Gillian Howard returns to her flat late one night after receiving the award for the "Thriller of the Year".

She finds she has been sent a copy of her latest award-winning novel The Lady Is Dead with no note and no indication as to who it is from. 

As the evening unfolds and a series of unfortunate accidents occur, she realises that someone is trying to kill her using the methods described in her own book!

Will she be able to discover the identity of her would-be murderer before it is too late?

Using the plot of her novel to stay one step ahead, she finally comes face to face with the murderer.

In the final chapter of her book, how did the heroine die? And will Gillian suffer the same fate?
