One longs to see what the Floria Toscas will get up to next. -- "Sunday Times" What could possibly be the connection between a small itinerant opera company, the Lord Mayor of London, and an international assassin bent on revenge? As George Sinclair's hastily reassembled Floria Tosca Grand Opera Company prepares to present "La Traviata" in London's Mansion House, in the presence of the Lord Mayor, they have little idea of the meaning of the threats or the blood and death that will flow from their performance. And when London's Special Branch and Interpol together can't trace the killer, how can George hope to do better?

About the Author:

John Gano, the pseudonym for Freddie Stockdale, is the founder of the Pavilion Opera.

From Kirkus Reviews:

Bargain-basement impresario George Sinclair's Floria Tosca Opera Company (Death at the Opera, 1996), engaged by horsey Lady Janet Tabley on a week's notice to perform La Traviata as a fund- raiser at London's historic Mansion House, is upstaged once again, this time by an assassin calling himself Solomon, who's announced his intention of killing the guest of honor, the Lord Mayor. Complementing the usual romantic complications and pratfalls of the Floria Tosca are the Lord Mayor's checkered present as a buccaneer embezzler, George's ex-lover/half-sister Isabelle's dalliance with a titled, randy businessman, and Solomon's inventive and sanguinary rehearsals for the main event. All the hustle and bustle makes for a giddily enjoyable round of intrigue it would be churlish to take any more seriously than the plot of a bel canto opera. -- Copyright ©1997, Kirkus Associates, LP.
