As a terror alert grips the city, a promising opera singer is found dead at the Washington National Opera (WNO). Then, a six-year-old murder case revolving around lost Mozart-Haydn string masterpieces is reopened. Besides the engaging plot, the delight of this audiobook lies in its background music, opera lore, and plethora of quirky characters. Phil Gigante's narration is adept with African-American, Iranian, and British accents, as well as the vocabulary of Italian opera. Gigante's narration is so potent that cops, terrorists, divas, and the crime-fighting couple of Mac and Annabel are all uniquely distinguishable as they navigate the glamour and grime that is our nation's capital.
