From the Back Cover
In this second Helen Mirkin novel, upon her return to Tel Aviv, Detective Inspector Helen Mirkin is tasked with finding opera singer Araceli Pena, who uncharacteristically has missed two Wozzeck rehearsals before opening night. When she is found dead in bed, the circumstances of her death are far from clear. The investigation takes DI Mirkin behind the scenes, to the mercurial world of the annual Opera Music Workshop, rife with competition and backstabbing among the singer's colleagues, many of whom dream of being awarded the Seagram Grant to study under the best coaches New York can offer. When the meteoric composer Israel Berger is shot dead shortly thereafter, the stakes are even higher for DI Mirkin, as the music world she cherishes seems to be under attack. Are the two deaths related? Can the Opera Music Workshop survive? And can DI Mirkin open a new chapter in her life and find happiness and love?

of life in secular-liberal Tel-Aviv, knowledgable information about opera literature and singing techniques, and understanding of human folly
The epigraph for the book is a beautiful poem by Jacques Prevert "La Grasse Matinee" (in both French and English). Maybe the author
wants to imply that murder, in the choir or elsewhere, is an absurd act of desperation.
