The Iron Tongue of Midnight
Tito Amato receives a mysterious invitation to rehearse a new opera at an isolated villa in the hills of the Venetian mainland. He’s barely settled in when a soprano stumbles over a dead body at the foreboding toll of midnight. Murders continue, all at the same hour. Are Tito and the rest of the cast living a real-life opera? Or is the killer simply taking advantage of the local constable’s absence?
