Summary, etc.: "San Francisco. Winter 1881-82. All pianist Inez Stannert wants for Christmas is for the struggling music store she owns in San Francisco to be a success. When diva Theia Carrington Drake asks Inez to be her accompanist for several high-profile personal appearances, Inez is thrilled. This is the chance she was waiting for-a way to make some extra money and bring her store into the limelight of the city's polite society to enhance her business. But things are far from pitch perfect. An unknown threat is stalking Theia; her pet bird is found slain, and her signature gown is destroyed. Soon, Inez realizes that a murderer is stalking the city's opera halls, and that it's only a matter of time before Theia is his next victim. She'll have to enlist the help of private investigator Wolter Roeland de Bruijn and uncover the killer before Theia's celebrated voice is silenced-permanently"--

    In the latest Silver Rush mystery (following A Dying Note, 2018), the year is 1881. Inez Stannert, San Francisco music-store owner and amateur sleuth, is having financial troubles. The store is faltering, and Inez's dream of helping other women in their business ventures seems doomed to failure. Then a famous singer, Theia Carrington Drake, offers Inez, a skilled pianist, the opportunity to replace Drake's regular accompanist, and Inez, seeing a way out of her troubles, takes the job. Soon, strange things start to happen; and when events escalate to murder, Inez realizes her benefactor is the target of a killer. Parker again combines an impeccably detailed historical setting (San Francisco after the Gold Rush) with sharply drawn characters and a suspenseful story to create a wholly satisfying mystery. Pair this with other Gold Rush–era mysteries, including William Martin's Bound for Gold (2018) and Vicki Delany's Gold Web (2014). Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
