Death of a Soprano
Murder—and scandal—at the opera. . . Charged with bringing Archduke Ferdinand and Maria Beatrice together, Joseph Haydn has his hands full. Neither bride nor imperial bridegroom is particularly eager to wed. Then an extortion note addressed to the Archduke surfaces. Hours later, Haydn’s prima donna—the suspected author of the note—is murdered. Forced to investigate, Haydn is nevertheless troubled. Does the young Archduke harbor secrets so dark, he had to resort to murder?
