October 17th 1879.
A bloodied body is found on a towpath, and suspicion falls on two music hall entertainers - Farrow and Flint. Hounded by a policeman with a score to settle, their attempts to find the real killer lead them into a shadowy world of deception and lies, a world where even their closest friends have secrets they dare not tell.
- Set in the rumbustious Music Hall of Victorian times, 'Out of the Limelight' is a tale of conspiracy, murder and love. James Bagworth skilfully entwines the lives of two music hall comedians, a French chanteuse on the run, and a pair of conspirators planning an assassination. This is a gripping read - a Victorian novel with a contemporary flavour, full of colourful characters, and laced with sparkling humour.
