How many times have we contemplated murder after getting a parking ticket for a minor offense such as having our bumper a mere inch into the red? One-time traffic court judge Jerry Levitin presided over 200,000 citation protests in six years on the bench and draws upon his experiences for his uproarious play I’d Kill for a Parking Place. The whodunit’s setup is familiar: A novice gumshoe asks one too many questions about a string of homicides, and the expert he enlists to help may just be the killer.
