Thriller Political | Mystery
Margaret Truman, who knows where all the bodies are buried
inside the Beltway, has written her most thrilling novel of
suspense yet. Murder at the Opera features the popular
crime-fighting couple Mac Smith and his wife, Annabel
Reed-Smith, as they navigate the glitz, glamour, and grime
that is Washington, D.C.
It ainâ€™t over till the fat
lady sings . . . but the show hasnâ€™t even started yet when a
diva is found dead. The soprano in question, a petite young
Asian Canadian named Charise Lee, was scarcely a star at the
Washington National Opera. But when the aspiring singer is
stabbed in the heart backstage during rehearsals, she
suddenly takes center stage.
Georgetown law professor
Mac Smith thought heâ€™d just be carrying a rapier in Tosca as
a favor for his beloved Annabel, but now theyâ€™re both being
pressured by the panicked theater board to unmask a killer.
Providing accompaniment will be former homicide detective,
current P.I., and eternal opera fan Raymond
Soon the Smiths find themselves dangerously
improvising among an expanding cast of suspects with all
sorts of scores to settle. What they uncover is an
increasingly complex case reaching far beyond Washington to
a dark world of informers and terror alerts in Iraq, and
climaxing on a fateful night at the opera attended by none
other than the President himself.
