Murder in the Pit is an adventure of the imagination, a play within a play. ...[Miner] has recreated in a fascinating operatic world a tangle of plot twists whose intricacies ultimately unravel to reveal the prose of an author who is sure of her skills." --Valerio Massimo Manfredi, author of The Ancient Curse (Macmillan Publishers Ltd., July 2010), The Ides of March and The Lost Army.
"...Ms. Miner has put together a very solid mystery with a cast of characters who were an absolute joy to read." --Amy Lignor, BookPleasures.com

Not many people write about music with the knowledge and depth that she does and achieve just the right tone and level of suspense.
I recommend this mystery novel to anyone who loves backstage workings and great mysteries ala Agatha Christie.
"Murder in the Pit" gripped me instantly and I could not stop reading it. Since it is a pretty quick read it doesn't take long to reach the satisfying conclusion (the explanation of which I did not see coming.)
This book would make a great gift for lovers of mystery and/or lovers of music - I bought it for my dad and borrowed it as soon as he was finished. Encore, encore!
In other words, Murder in the Pit is enormous fun. Even seasoned mystery readers may find themselves astonished by the way she brings everything together in a frankly scary way. And no...by the way...the butler did NOT do it.
