Step back in time to 1959 when the musical Robbin’ Hood is trying out in Boston. The sets won’t work, the audiences are leaving, and the leading lady has been murdered! Who did it? And why? Boston detective, and amateur actor, Lt. Frank Cioffi sets out to solve the murder of Jessica Cranshaw. Was it the greedy producer? The desperate director? The jealous writers? Will Lt. Cioffi solve the murder before the killer sets his sights on him?
