10/28/198? Put out The Light begins
October 28, 198? This date saw the beginning of the action in Put Out The Light, Sara Woods' 45th novel about British barrister Anthony Maitland. Woods moved from England to Canada at age 35, and published her first novel four years later.
The plot involves deadly, possibly supernatural, mischief intended to prevent the production of a newly discovered seventeenth century play. Publishers' Weekly said: "this whodunit is as archly spun out as its 44 predecessors, but it will
undoubtedly captivate the author's large and loyal following."
