Publisher's Summary

In Venice in 1742, Tito Amato is singing lead roles at the Teatro San Marco. On opening night, he has the entire audience entranced, except for one box with its scarlet curtains tightly drawn. Is this a lovers' assignation or a meeting deep in political intrigue? Annoyed at being ignored, Tito aims the full force of his golden throat at the fourth-tier box and is astounded when the curtains part and a woman tumbles over the railing.The victim is Zulietta Giardino, a mischievous courtesan involved with a young glassmaker. As Tito was the only one to see the masked man who pushed Zulietta to her death, the chief of Venice's rudimentary police force requests the singer's assistance. Did a wager over a rival courtesan's jewels spell Zulietta's death? Or did the motive involve sinister events in the glass factories of Murano?

Once again a riveting mystery from this quickly becoming my favourite author!

Tito Amado once again draws us into the world of Venice of times past to unravel another mysterious death. Good pace and characterisations. The historical information vivid and the plots meaty and satisfying. Not a cozy mystery as this has more depth and colour! Like an exotic sweetmeat, to be savoured!

Story 3, narrator nil!

Quite a pleasant Venetian tale weaving a murder mystery through the Jewish ghetto and the operatic arias of the Castrato hero but almost teeth grindingly awful narrator whose pompous tone and mispronunciations made it a bit of an endurance test to listen to. I would have read the next one if the narrator had changed but no... he reads three of them!
