Funeral of Figaro

An opera company tries to save a production dogged by murder
Jimmy Clash, aka Jimmy the One, has poured thousands into the Leander Theatre’s opera company and never seen a cent of profit, but he doesn’t mind a bit. Jimmy loves the extravagance of great opera, and the Leander’s new production of The Marriage of Figaro will be its most spectacular feat yet. But when the star basso dies in a freak plane accident, the production is thrown into jeopardy. Luckily, Jimmy is able to secure Marc Chartier, the greatest Figaro in the world and the man who will singlehandedly save the Leander—or tear it apart.
A living legend, Chartier is also a womanizer, a brute, and a coward. He steals the heart of every woman backstage, and when he’s murdered in the middle of a performance, every member of the company becomes a suspect. Before the last curtain falls, the killer must be captured, or the Leander will be audience to a murderous encore.
