Stage Business - Gerry Fostaty

Michael Dion is an actor, not a detective, but when Amanda, an attractive young actress, asks him to help her find Kyle, her friend's rebellious son, how can he refuse? The gig turns out to be much more than Michael had bargained for. Kyle has fallen into the clutches of small­time drug dealers. Egged on by Amanda,Michael bluffs and blusters his way to secure the boy's release. The thugs overreact, putting Michael's life at risk until his fellow actors and special effects artists come to his rescue.

 

 

The story had me captivated from the first page, and has stayed with me days after finishing the last

Arielle Lerner, Capital Literary Review

 

Once an actor himself, Fostaty knows his milieu. The scenes of  the rehearsals  are packed with telling details. 

Timothy Niedermann, Ottawa Review of Books

 

The delight in this novel is the ingenious ways the theatre crew use their various specialized skills to save the day and rescue the protagonist from his heroic intentions, leading the police into the thickening plot.

Barbara Rogers, New Perspectives on Canadian Literature

 

 

Canadian writer Gerry Fostaty’s first novel is a delight from start to finish. Fostaty takes up

the eminently reasonable but hitherto underused concept that the acting profession is

excellent training for undercover police work.

Trish, The Bowed Bookshelf
