2014 book 162

Carola Dunn's Requiem for a Mezzo
The third Daisy Dalrymple mystery takes a break from weekends at manor houses for a murder at the opera! Lots of artistic temperaments and affairs mean plenty of suspects when a singer is poisoned on stage. I mean, it's not hard to guess what actually happened, but it's still pretty satisfying. Plus, the romance between Daisy and the Chief Inspector seems to be coming along nicely. There is some historically-accurate anti-Semitism here, but the "good" characters talk about how wrong this is, so I guess it's ok? B+.
