Summary

While watching the opera at La Fenice, Nancy Tremayne is shocked to see a woman fall to her death. But how did this tragedy occur? Newlywed Nancy is accompanying her art professor husband, Leo, on a work trip. As she explores Italy’s beautiful city on the water, she is increasingly compelled to uncover the mysterious circumstances surrounding the woman’s death. 

Leo is adamant it was an accident but his assistant, Archie, reluctantly helps Nancy. Nancy’s determination to reveal the facts puts her in harm’s way more than once. As she learns more about Venice’s secrets she realises she may be forced to make a choice - the truth, or her life?

Great story but storyline left unfinished

This story was cleverly written and the whole plot was not revealed till almost the very end. I would have given it 5 stars but, there was one storyline that was developing through the chapters regarding Nancy and this was totally left hanging in the air. Unless the author is planning a sequel to this story, the ending does not feel complete.
I like it when all loose ends are tied up but this definitely wasn’t the case.
Great read though.

Narrator disappointment

Not enough variety in tonality and accents of characters. Difficult to distinguish between make characters at times.
