Mozart's Last Aria - Giveaway and Review

In October 1791 Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, the greatest musical genius the world has ever seen, told his wife he had been poisoned. Six weeks later, at the age of thirty-five, he was dead.

In the latest novel by Matt Rees, Mozart's Last Aria is comprised of musical literature intertwined with the news that Mozart's sister, Nannerl hears about his death. Her entire world as she has known it collaspes with the news of her brother's death and she resolves to find out what happened to him. Her only clue lies with a letter from Mozart's wife Constanze, that informs her that despite what rumors exist about his death and unfaithfulness, he died a most true and devoted husband and father, while also confessing to his wife that he knew he would not last much longer because he was sure he had been poisoned.

So begins the search for truth about the true nature of her brother's death, Nannerl discovers her brother left behind a hand written page about creating a new Masonic body that he wanted to set up a lodge named the Grotto but the remainder of the page is left incomplete. As Nannerl questions some of his closest confidants, they refuse to answer her and warn her that they don't wish to end up like her brother. Nannerl soon finds herself ensnared in a web of suspicion and intrigue - as the actions of jealous lovers, sinister creditors, rival composers and Mozart's Masonic brothers suggest that dark secrets hastened the genius to his grave. As she digs deeper into the mystery surrounding his passing, Mozart's black fate threatens to overtake her as well.

Transporting readers to the salons and concert halls of eighteenth-century Austria, Mozart's Last Aria is a magnificent historical mystery that pulls back the curtain on a world of soaring music, burning passion, and powerful secrets. I received this novel compliments of TLC Book Tours for my honest opinion and really enjoyed the premise behind this novel. I rate this one a 4 out of 5 stars and one I highly recommend for those that love classical music with a twist of mystery.
