Death Of A Diva, written by Brigitte Goldstein, opens in New York City in 1941. Broadway star, Stella Berger has been murdered and Misia Safran, a theater employee, may have unintentionally allowed the murderer to enter the theater. As a result she finds herself immersed in the investigation of the crime. As she investigates the murder she learns much about Stella Berger’s life and eventually, her death.
There is no shortage of suspsects and when one is arrested, charged and convicted Misia is not totally convinced he is the murderer. The cast of characters are a complicated group. By providing impeccable details, the author gives the reader the opportunity to get to know them. Their stories are intriguing.
This is an eloquently written historical mystery that spans two continents. I found this to be a gripping story and the ending was a total surprise.
I received this book free of charge and I give this review of my own free will.
