Title Profile & Character Information

The Jewels of Paradise

Annotation
No, not another of Leons engaging mysteries starring Commissario Guido Brunetti but a stand-alone novel-though its still set in Venice. Baroque opera expert Caterina Pellegrini has returned home to oversee the opening of two just-discovered trunks containing the effects (and maybe a fortune?) of a baroque composer who once reigned supreme. Lovely to see Leon spread her wings, and she writes persuasively about music; a related CD recorded by a world-famous singer is in the works.
