Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Dorothy Martin and her husband, retired Chief Constable Alan Nesbitt, are invited to join their close friends Nigel and Inga Evans at a Welsh music festival where both Nigel and Inga will be performing with the world-renowned conductor Sir John Warner. Amid the glorious surroundings of Welsh castles and the history of long-ago battles, the stage is set for a most enjoyable festival.

However, when a tragic accident takes the life of one of the choir, and the same fate befalls another performer, Dorothy and Alan find themselves in the midst of an investigation as tumultuous, passionate and complicated as any opera.

Review:

"Despite its contemporary setting, Dams's enjoyable 13th Dorothy Martin mystery (after 2012's The Corpse of St. James's) features many hallmarks of the traditional British cozy. Retired American teacher Dorothy is vacationing in Wales with her husband, Alan Nesbitt, who is a retired chief constable, along with some young friends — one of whom will perform at a music festival being held at Flint Castle. Classical choral music and a renowned conductor are anticipated, but the fluke accident that takes a choir member's life is not. After a similar fatal incident, Dorothy and Alan work with local police to investigate the deaths. Dams unfolds her plot with a sure hand, but music takes center stage. The story sometimes threatens to turn into melodrama, but the characters always have time for a pint or a cup of tea before the line into absurdity is crossed. Anglophiles, music lovers, and cozy readers will sing 'alleluia.' Agent: Kimberley Cameron, Kimberley Cameron Agency. (July)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
