Large Print edition
When world famous conductor Maestro Helmut Wellauer dies halfway through a performance of La Traviata in La Fenice in Venice, it is soon clear that the cause of death is cyanide poisoning. To Commissario of Police Guido Brunetti falls the task of finding out why the man died and who caused the death.
He soon discovers that Wellauer was not a nice man and that he made a lot of enemies during his life. The big question is, who hated the conductor enough to cause his death.
This was a good and well plotted mystery with central characters I'll enjoy finding out more about.
