With dashing Scotland Yard detective Alec Fletcher at her side, Daisy Dalrymple is enjoying a splendid performance of Verdi's Requiem featuring her neighbour Muriel Westlea's celebrated sister, Bettina. But the show comes to an abrupt end when what emerges from the star's gifted vocal chords literally a dying gasp. Daisy soon learns that doomed diva was notoriously difficult and had more than her share of enemies. There's a philandering tenor, a burly Russian bass and even her own vocal coach husband, with whom she had a turbulent relationship.

Did one of them poison the singer? Or was it someone determined to see that Daisy's investigation ends on as a bitter a note as Bettina's last performance.

This was my second Daisy Dalrymple mystery and quite as enjoyable as the first one. I just love the language :)

This was my first Daisy Dalrymple mystery and I rather enjoyed it. I love these stories where a woman is trespassing social borders when she is valued higher than her companion in the opinion of others.
I must add some books in the series on my wishlist.
