The impresario Peregrine Jay has fulfilled a long-cherished dream: He now owns the Dolphin Theatre, and has restored it to its former glory. To celebrate the re-opening, a no-expenses-spared production of "The Glove," a new play about the discovery of a true Shakespearean accessory. London’s chattering classes are abuzz with gossip about the theatre, rumors about Peregrine, critiques of the play. But when murder takes center-stage, everyone gets very quiet, and only Inspector Alleyn can persuade them to start chattering again—this time, with a purpose. Killer Dolphin (which has also been published as Death at the Dolphin) is in fact not the last we'll see of Peregrine Jay and the Dolphin Theater; they will return later in the Inspector Alleyn series.
"Miss Marsh works her characteristic storyteller's magic with the elements of theater and suspense"—Kirkus
