    Mystery and egos collide during the premiere of La Fanciulla del West at the Metropolitan Opera in 1910. The cast of characters are all real people of the time: Enrico Caruso, Geraldine Farrar, Pasquale Amato, Emmy Destinn, Arturo Toscanini, impresario Gatti-Cassaza, and Giacomo Puccini himself. Like most cozies, the plot takes a backseat to the characters, but Paul's affectionate handling of the divos & divas is too fun to quibble over.

    Rather silly crime novel in which Puccini - in New York for the world premiere of La Fanciulla del West - is accused of murder. The legendary tenor, Caruso, turns sleuth. Moderately entertaining but for lovers of opera and crime only. That's me! But it still doesn't amount to much.
