Venice, 1742. Tito Amato is once again singing lead roles at the Teatro San Marco. On opening night, the famous castrato has the entire audience entranced-except for one box with its scarlet curtains stubbornly drawn. He is astounded when the curtains part and a woman tumbles over the railing. The victim is Zulietta Giardino, a mischievous courtesan involved with a young glass maker. As Tito was the only one to see the masked man who pushed Zulietta to her death, the chief of Venice's rudimentary police force requests the singer's assistance. Tito also faces troubles at home. His neighbors regard his household as theatrical riffraff and disdain his wife, Liya, as an apostate Jew. Tito's difficulties collide when the masked killer transfers his vengeance to Tito's loved ones. Beverle Graves Myers has earned nominations for the Macavity, Derringer, and Kentucky Literary Awards. A retired psychiatrist, Bev is also a lifelong opera lover and avid traveler. She lives in Louisville, Kentucky with her husband Lawrence. www.beverlegravesmyers.com

7. Whispers of Vivaldi A Tito Amato Mystery - Beverle Graves Myers

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £13.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Praise for earlier Tito Amato mysteries... "Myers brings 18th-century Venice to vivid life." -Publishers Weekly review of Her Deadly Mischief Venice, 1745. An accident has reduced Tito Amato's singing voice to a husky croak. So Teatro San Marco's Maestro Torani asks Tito to locate the perfect opera in time for Carnival. A second-rate composer provides the very thing-an opera so beautiful the public speculates it was written by Antonio Vivaldi. Even more disconcerting are the rumors about lead singer Angeletto. Is the singer truly a castrato or a female soprano engaging in a daring masquerade? When Maestro Torani is viciously attacked and killed, Tito's life as well as the future of the theater depend on his skills as a sleuth. Beverle Graves Myers is the author of five previous Tito Amato mysteries. A retired psychiatrist, she divides her time between Kentucky and Florida. www.beverlegravesmyers.com

Rome: September, 96 AD. When the body of Sextus Verpa, a notorious senatorial informer and libertine, is found stabbed to death in his bedroom, suspicion falls on his household slaves-a potential death sentence for all.

Pooling their talents, they unravel a plot that involves Jewish and Christian "atheists," exotic Egyptian cultists, Rome's own pantheon of gods, and a missing horoscope that forecasts the emperor's death.... Bruce Macbain holds a B.A. in Classics from the University of Chicago and a Ph.D. in Ancient History from the University of Pennsylvania. He has taught Greek and Roman history at Vanderbilt and Boston University. Roman Games is his debut novel. www.brucemacbain.com
