When the AWB Theatre troupe accepts an invitation to perform on the tropical island of Illyria, they get more than they bargained for. Sudden death. Many of them. When one of their own troupe is killed, however, Mark Louis, company member and amateur detective, has to first determine whether the supposed accident really was an accident. Mark concludes otherwise, but the actors must return home to New York, forcing Mark to conduct his investigation a thousand miles from the crime. Can he possibly bring a killer to justice from such a distance?
