After a long period of 'resting, ' life is looking up for Charles Paris, who has been cast in a new production of Hamlet. But rehearsals are fraught. Ophelia is played by Katrina Selsey, who won the role through a television talent show. Hamlet himself is also played by a reality TV contestant, Jared Root. But when the company reaches the first staging post of their tour, matters get more serious, with one member of the company seriously injured in what appears to be an accident, and another dead. Once again, Charles Paris is forced to don the mantle of amateur detective to get to the bottom of the mystery.

Review:

"Brett has a rare gift for balancing humor and detection"
Publishers Weekly Starred Review of A Decent Interval

"" Two Hamlets, two Ophelias, a range of jostling egos, stage history and lore, and the wry figure of Paris himself make this more than worth the price of admission.""
Booklist Starred Review of A Decent Interval

""A cheeky sendup of TV competition shows, tweeting, texting and backstage egos.""
