Gail Conner's activities as attorney for the Miami Opera quickly become entwined with her personal life when the Cuban community protests the performance of a baritone who performed in Cuba two years earlier. While attempting to get at the truth, Gail makes some surprising discoveries about her fiance, attorney Anthony Quintana, and before the story ends both get caught up in a tangled web of murder, intrigue and politics. Rosenblat gives a multilingual performance, speaking in excellent Spanish when needed and getting all the accents right. She's also called upon to sing bits of arias and manages to accomplish this in yet another foreign language (Italian) while actually carrying the tunes. Drama is heightened by Rosenblat's tempo--she savors the narrative, pausing at particular places for emphasis. Some audible swallowing and breathing are evident but not enough to spoil the listening experience. S.S.R. © AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/MAR 00]
