Final Curtain Call

By Michael James Stewart

Crime & mystery | Paperback, eBook


Two days after the opening, to rave reviews in a London revival, of Noel Coward’s ‘Private Lives’, Dame Jocelyn Mahone disappears the same day her co-star and husband of thirty-one years, Sir Alistair Vickers, surprises her and the world, by announcing he is retiring. Following a fortnight of inaction on the part of Scotland Yard, which feels it is a publicity stunt to boost ticket sales, Estelle Vickers, Dame Jocelyn and Sir Alistair’s daughter calls the dear friend, Faison Quay, in Toronto, Canada, and asks for his assistance in locating her Mother. Rather than merely having his famous Key Security International’s London Agent take on the case, Faison, immediately flies to London on his private plane, along with his husband, Stark Redfearne, son, Faison Quay VII, affectionately known as Veetwo, Règinè Ouellette, Chief Operations Officer of Key Security International and former Commissioner of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, and Faison’s Personal Assistant, David Granpré. Taking up residence in the Owner’s Suite, of the six-star Key Hotel London, the world famous Faison Quay sets out to solve the mystery of Dame Jocelyn’s disappearance, as well as two subsequent murders, before the Final Curtain Call.

A native of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, I have spent my life as a renaissance man, combining my passion for joie de vivre with the dictum of “travel is the best form of education, by living in the United States, England, the Caribbean; and by travelling Europe, Turkey, South America and Mexico, where I met the powerful, famous, and humourous as well as politicians, charlatans, scamps, roués and the desperate. Having enjoyed a varied life, I have worked in theatre and television in my youth; been a Fashion Buyer, Structural and Interior Designer, Motivational Speaker, and been in executive positions for a number of businesses and not-for-profit organisations, in my middle years; to presently being an Image & Etiquette Consultant, working with both corporations and individuals, as well as authoring and publishing Clod To Suave – The Etiquette, Manners, Grooming & Dressing, Make—Over Handbook and accompanying university-level seminar series; along with being a prolific writer of three comedic stage plays and six original Faison Quay Murder Mysteries: “Now That I’m Gone”, “In the Absence of Passion”, “Narcissus’ Reflection”, “One By One”, “The First Stone”, “Harcourt’s Legacy”, “Perfection”, “Final Curtain” and “Checked In / Checked Out”.
