Under sentence of death, Anne Paget accepts a surprise offer of a part in Regulus, an opera Beethoven wrote. It is to be staged in Lissenberg to celebrate another international peace conference. Arriving in the green and secure valley, Anne soon realizes that hers has indeed been a gamble. Greeted with acclaim and moved from understudy to star, she is more aware of the dangerous crosscurrents that underlie the glittering society of Lissenberg. Sabotage and murder threaten both the opera and peace conference, and despite the glamour of her position, Anne is hard put to know whom to suspect. This book was rescued from a patient library being closed. It has a new cover on the dustjacket. The spine is cocked forward, but there is no wear on the book or jacket. It does have the usual "library" stamps and an envelope. 251 pages. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
