The impresario Peregrine Jay has fulfilled a long-cherished dream: Thanks to a very generous gift, he now owns the Dolphin Theatre, and has restored it to its former glory. To celebrate the re-opening, a no-expenses-spared production of The Glove, a new play about the discovery of a true Shakespearean accessory. London’s chattering classes are abuzz with gossip about the theatre, rumors about Peregrine, critiques of the play. But when murder takes center-stage, everyone gets very quiet, and only Inspector Alleyn can persuade them to start chattering again – this time, with a purpose.

The once-dilapidated Dolphin Theatre, now restored to its former glory, is open again – and all of London is buzzing about its new play, The Glove, inspired by the discovery of a genuine Shakespearean glove.
All goes well until a murder shatters the dignified atmosphere. Superintendent Alleyn and Inspector Fox are called in to investigate.

This is, as usual, an interesting, enjoyable, and fun read by Ngaio Marsh. As in many of her novels, Killer Dolphin has a theater theme to it, not surprising given her background in theater. In some ways, the novel even reads like a play.
