Mac Smith has retired from defending criminals in court and now teaches law at Georgetown. His wife also has retired from her law practice. She now sits on the Board of the Washington National Opera. When WNO planned to present Tosca, Annabel Smith convinces Mac to be a super in the upcoming production. He is surprisingly pleased with the experience. Until an opera student is found murdered and evidence surfaces connected to an unsolved murder case from six years before.
Truman weaves the story based in D.C. but with international intrigue in the middle east, Britain and the Carribean. Of course there is the ever present cast of agencies such as the CIA, FBI and Homeland Security. The President and First Lady along with congressmen make an appearance in the story.
The show, Tosca, will go on in spite of the tragedy. Police investigate and a retired D.C. cop is hired to investigate. Mac and Annabel are very much involved in it all and to the very end of the book we are wondering what really happened.
Ms. Beth, 2008
