As if running an art museum wasn’t enough, Dr. Dulcinea Chambers now finds herself in battle with the new board of directors chair, Vanessa Rich, who is on a ruthless quest to trim the budget in any way she can. Her cost-cutting measures will begin with selling off Dulcie’s antique office furniture, much to Dulcie’s bewilderment. Detective Nicholas Black is no less perplexed when falconry expert Esmerelda Graves barges into the police station insisting that one of her prized birds has been murdered. Ulterior motives are certainly at play as Dulcie finds that Vanessa stands to profit from the sales, while Nick learns that Esmerelda’s raptors are carrying tiny video cameras. When the seemingly disconnected worlds of these two shady women begin to intertwine, and a most certainly murdered person turns up where the dead bird was found, Dulcie and Nick need hawk-like precision to determine why… before someone else falls prey.
Sophia's life in 1735 London is uprooted when her widowed mother marries a wealthy Italian count and moves Sophia, along with her sister Maria, to his villa near the cosmopolitan city of Florence. Sophia's love of the pianoforte and the music of Vivaldi isn't enough to make her believe that she'll be happy in Florence, until she meets the Count's son, Dante. As impresario of one of Florence's theater companies, he is entrenched in opera. Is their shared passion in music enough to bring them together, or will his disdain for all things English, along with her longing to return home to London, separate them forever?
