When murder propels him backstage, Haydn is forced to confront a deadly killer. . .

When the Burgtheater’s impresario unexpectedly meets his maker, Joseph Haydn is relieved to learn no one expects him to look into the matter. The impresario was murdered—and the Salzburger believed to be the killer is already behind bars.

But the impresario’s untimely death is not without consequences. Haydn’s employer insists he take over the dead man’s duties. Handling the tedious technical details of putting on an opera is bad enough. Confronting the suspicious behavior backstage is even worse.

Is an innocent man being sent to the gallows? Haydn is plagued by the question when his brother Michael confirms his worst fears. The Salzburger arrested for the murder is none other than Leopold Mozart—father of the well-known child prodigy currently in Vienna.

Now, egged on by Michael—a close friend of the Mozarts—Haydn must prove Leopold innocent. Or risk his brother’s ire forever!

Praise for the Joseph Haydn Mysteries: “Tustin orchestrates a concerto of intrigue and deception . . .” – Anna Lee Huber, Lady Darby Mysteries

“A standout in the genre of historical mysteries . . .” – Midwest Book Reviews

*I received a free copy of this book which I voluntarily chose to write an honest review for.

A solid addition to a highly enjoyable historical cozy mystery series. Joseph is hearing up to an opera performance. Things are going good until the man in charge is murdered. Joseph is asked to take over his duties because you know the show must go on. As if he is not busy enough his brother then pops up asking him to look into things. Well of course he cannot say no. What follows is a well laid out mystery full of important people from history, plenty of clues, and a few twists to keep you guessing all the way until the end. Makes for quite the fun read sure to be enjoyed by fans of the genre. I really liked it so I give it 4/5 stars.
