Publisher's Summary

When Lord Pastern Bagott takes up with the hot music of Breezy Bellair and his Boys, his disapproving wife Cecile has more than usual to be unhappy about. The band's devastatingly handsome but roguish accordionist, Carlos Rivera, has taken a rather intense and mutual interest in her precious daughter Felicite. So when a bit of strange business goes awry and actually kills him, it's lucky that Inspector Roderick Alleyn is in the audience. Now Alleyn must follow a confusing score that features a chorus of family and friends desperate to hide the truth and perhaps shelter a murderer in their midst.


What the Critics Say

I found this devastatingly boring. Whether it was the narrator and her exaggerated pronunciation of everything, particularly the French accents, or whether it was the story itself, I don't know. I stuck it out, hoping it would "catch" and I'd want to know what happened next, but it never did. I hate to think about the time I wasted, not to mention the money. I didn't like it.
