Her Deadly Mischief
Venice, 1742. Tito Amato is once again singing the lead role 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 and is shocked when a courtesan tumbles over the railing. Did a wager over a rival courtesan’s jewels spell her death? Or did the motive involve sinister activities in the glass factories of Murano?
