Barbara Langner signs her new cozy mystery, "Murder Haunts the Theater," in which amateur sleuth Monica Walters investigates the death of an actress at an Albuquerque theater.
"Murder Haunts the Theater": A female detective, a lovable dog, and quirky characters merge in an intriguing mystery at an Albuquerque theater. When an actress is murdered, a cast member blames her death on the ancient curse that has hovered over Macbeth for centuries. Monica Walters, an amateur sleuth, agrees to play the dead girl's role of a witch in order to investigate the murder. Monica finds clues in the murdered actress's past but isn't able to prevent another death. In fact, she finds herself targeted by the elusive killer.
Barbara Langner lives in Albuquerque, New Mexico in an old house with a gnarled cottonwood tree frequented by a flock of vultures. The birds entertain her dog, aggravate her husband, and inspire the writer's macabre interest in murder.
