Praise for Her Deadly Mischief... 'Venice's Teatro San Marco opera house forms the dramatic backdrop for the start of Myers's absorbing fifth historical....As ever, Myers brings 18th-century Venice to vivid life.' -Publishers Weekly Venice, 1742. Tito Amato has regained his zest for performing and 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. Annoyed at being ignored, Tito aims the full force of his golden throat at the fourth-tier box. 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. Did a wager over a rival courtesan's jewels spell Zulietta's death? Or did the motive involve sinister events in the glass factories of Murano? Tito faces troubles of a different sort at home. His upstanding neighbors regard his household as an immoral den of theatrical riffraff and disdain his wife, Liya, as an apostate Jew. While Liya attempts to reconcile with her disapproving family, Tito strives to be a good father to his adopted son. The singer's difficulties collide when the masked killer transfers his vengeance to Tito's loved ones. Beverle Graves Myers' Baroque Mystery series featuring Tito Amato, has earned her nominations for the Macavity, Derringer, and Kentucky Literary Awards. A retired psychiatrist, Bev lives in Louisville, Kentucky, with her husband Lawrence. www.beverlegravesmyers.com
