Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

In her fifth appearance, Det. Insp. Carol Ashton investigates the death of Collis Raeburn, "Australia's Pavarotti." Found in a Sydney hotel room, Collis appears to have committed suicide, but to Carol his death "looks staged." Suspects are copious: Kenneth Raeburn, Collis's father and manager, denies that his son was HIV-positive, despite evidence to the contrary. Collis's sister, Nicole, was fiercely--perhaps incestuously--devoted to him. The singer's life befitted grand opera: he had contentious relationships (on and off stage) with sopranos Alanna Brooks and Corinne Jawalski; he may have been about to bail out of a new opera composed by Graeme Welton and produced by Edward Livingston; and he doomed rival tenor Lloyd Clancy to second place. It is doubly tough for Carol to sort through Collis's life when her own is on the rocks: her lover, Sybil Quade, has moved out, and an anonymous caller is threatening to expose Carol as a lesbian. Still, with the able assistance of Det. Sgt. Mark Bourke and Cons. Anne Newsome, Carol works her way through the lies and smokescreens McNab ( Cop Out ) sends up in her path in this well-constructed mystery.

Good one in a fun to read series. May 25 2012
By A. Brink - Published on
Format: Paperback
I really enjoyed this book. I would recommend the whole series because they are really fun and unique. The main character is a lesbian woman detective named Carol Ashton. She goes through many different cases and a few different women too.
If you want to have a fun time this summer, get this series from the beginning (they are all numbered) and read them all. I love it and have fond memories of reading each one.

Another good read Jan. 24 2015
By VelvetLounger - Published on
Format: Paperback
Another winner from Claire McNab. the time we are in the world of Opera where a world renowned Tenor supposedly killes himself.. but Carol Ashton isn't convinced. This is more sympathetic than many of the others, maybe because it touches on a serious subject for a LGBT writer. Still light and easy reading but well handled non-the less.
