Play to the End

Once Toby Flood played a Bond like hero in a Hollywood film Now he’s serving a sentence in a crippled traveling production of a newly unearthed Joe Orton play a play that might have saved Toby’s career if only someone enjoyed watching it Painfully the show’s swan song is coming in Play to EpubBrighton where Toby’s wife happens to be livi. Much of the plot was frustrating and tedious I understand there wouldn t be much of a book if the characters called the police instead of doing their own investigation but I really wished they d had better reasons for not doing so Near the end I got so angry with the stupid stuff the main character did I could barely stand it but hung in hoping it would somehow be explained so it all made sense It was not uite a bummer this one

Robert Goddard  8 Summary

Ng happily with another man in anticipation of a divorce decree Then almost as if he were scripted a stranger enters the sceneA stalker is frightening Toby’s wife Jenny who believes the man is probably one of her estranged husband’s fans When Jenny asks Toby to confront the man Toby leaps at the chance Soon he’s moonlighting from the stage. A typical Goddard novel with the past influencing the present Set in Brighton which I know so that was a bonus Written in the form of a transcription of an audio diary The main character Toby Flood comes across as likeable but not much of a luvvie The best character is Sydney Porteous a hail fellow well met kind of guy I could imagine him so clearly However I am not happy as a retired solicitor with the author s take on the laws of intestacy I do not think a child would inherit on intestacy from the husband of his mother that child being an illegitimate child of mother Also the industrial injuries claim would not have been paid by that estate but by the company s insurers Two glaring errors in the plot As he had been brought up by father he may well have had a claim but only through the courts Downgraded to 2 I don t like improbabiltiees magnified by total errors
