Summary
Max Mephisto, the greatest magician of his age, has always despised pantomime. To him it seems synonymous with failure, all those has-beens wandering around in drag. But when he is offered a season as Abanazar in Aladdin on Brighton Pier, he decides to break a lifetime's rule and accept the part. The role of a pantomime villain, or Demon King, is always prestigious and it will give him a chance to do a few magic tricks into the bargain. Besides, his friend Edgar is a policeman in Brighton and it will be good to catch up. But then a young actress called Flavia Dean, who is portraying Aladdin, is found dead, killed in a grotesque reenactment of Snow White. Flavia was not universally popular with the cast, but could one of them have killed her? As the Christmas season approaches, tempers become fraught... Then Widow Twanky is killed, this time in a parody of Peter Pan. Does the clue lie in the secret world of pantomime? Inspector Edgar Stephens is involved in another case concerning two abandoned children. Too late he realizes that they might be linked to Aladdin after all, and Edgar's nephews, excitedly attending the opening performance of the show, might be the next victims
