Description

Excitement mounts as the moment arrives for brilliant young violinist Julia Kogan’s debut in the orchestra of the world-renowned Metropolitan Opera. But the high-stakes milieu of this musical mecca is rocked to its core when, during an onstage murder scene, Julia’s mentor, a famous conductor, is assassinated on the podium.

Advance Praise

“Erica Miner, the Agatha Christie of the opera world, continues the genre with a wickedly wonderful, fast-paced updated version of the former 1st book in the series, Murder in the Pit. Her brand new thriller, Aria for Murder, delights in every way, as plot twists and turns left my heart racing through the suspenseful dénouement. Miner's 21 years as violinist with the Met Orchestra gives credence to her knowledge of the opera house, both in front of and behind the Gold Curtain. This is simply brilliant writing. Bravissima!”
— Richard Stilwell, international opera star

“A ruthless and clever killer haunts the Metropolitan Opera and the hidden recesses of Lincoln Center. Violinist Julia Kogan, a rising star in the pit, must unmask the murderer or become a victim herself. Erica Miner’s richly satisfying Aria for Murder delivers a compelling mystery, replete with devious characters, glorious music, and plenty of behind-the-scenes dirty laundry. A musical and dramatic triumph. Bis! Encore!”
— James W. Ziskin, Anthony, Barry, and Macavity Award-winning author of the Ellie Stone Mysteries. Edgar®, Agatha, and Lefty Award finalist

Filled with nonstop action and vibrant color, this story will whisk you away to another world where you’ll fall for the characters and yearn for more. I really loved this book. The opera background just filled me with so much joy. your background and scenery all played so strong with me! All in all, a brilliant work. Highly recommended.”
