This short mystery is a standalone story set in London. The Emily Castles mysteries can be read in any order.

"It's a confection of intriguing characters and situations. The small details that season the story keep the reader turning the pages. The cleverly written story shows a deep understanding of human motivations and reactions, even as it reveals a sense of how ridiculous people can be. Dive in to 'Showstoppers' when you have time to relish every line. You'll be glad you did." Mary Beth Magee, Yahoo Voices

I love Helen Smith's writing. Her brand of mystery, shot through with clever observational humour and the sharpest of wit, is something that's been missing from the genre for far too long. Alex Marwood, Edgar award winning author of The Wicked Girls
