Murder at the Castle

Annotation
Dorothy Martin is in Wales for an opera full of passion, drama . . . and murder.
Dorothy Martin and her husband, retired Chief Constable Alan Nesbitt, are invited to join their close friends Nigel and Inga Evans at a Welsh music festival. Amid the glorious surroundings of Welsh castles and the history of long-ago battles, the stage is set for an enjoyable event. However, when a tragic accident takes the life of one of the choir, and the same fate befalls the star soloist, Dorothy and Alan find themselves in the midst of an investigation as tumultuous, passionate and complicated as any opera.
