Venice, 1745. Tito, no longer able to sing, is now staging operas under Maestro Torani's direction. But their beloved Teatro San Marco is in trouble--subscribers are flocking to a rival theater and the Senate is threatening to withdraw its sponsorship. Torani charges Tito with finding an extraordinary opera to lure the audience back. Who would have thought that a second-rate composer would provide just that. Or did he? The music is so beautiful that people begin to speculate that the great Vivaldi himself, dead these past four years, is the actual composer. And then there's the matter of the lead singer. The imported castrato possesses the perfect soprano voice--too perfect, in fact. Is Angeletto all that he appears to be?
Soon Tito is worried about more than the competition between theaters. Maestro Torani's murder thrusts him into the role of company savior, sleuth, and suspect!
What people are saying
Take a look at the entire series on my TITO AMATO BOOKS page. Tito's first adventure, INTERRUPTED ARIA, is currently at a bargain price of $.99 on Kindle. Though each book is a self-contained mystery, starting at the beginning is the best way to become acquainted with Tito's family, plus his theater friends and rivals. And please don't be shy about telling the world what you think of my books--leave a review on your favorite site. It really helps!!!
