A Knight at the Opera (Book 4)

The Denver Opera Company's production of Carmen has an unplanned finale when a member of the audience plunges to his death from the top balcony--nearly landing on Denver lawyer Adam Larsen and his paralegal, former Denver Bronco Maurice White. What appears to be a mere accident quickly becomes far more complicated. What was this happily married man doing at the opera with another woman? And why has she disappeared? Much to the irritation of Larsen's nemesis, Sergeant Joe Stone, the victim's wife hires Larsen to represent her in a dispute with her husband's ex-wife and his business partners. But questions continue to arise. Why was the deceased maintaining a secret post office box--and what is so important about it that someone would assault Larsen's significant-whatever-she-is, private investigator Jana Duncan, outside the Cherry Creek Mall? The matter grows more confusing when an ex-cop who had been trailing Larsen is found bludgeoned to death. Larsen's nimble brain and quick sense of humor will sort it all out. If only he can do it in time to save Jana's life...

This book was fun because it kept you guessing. The main character's flippant smartass conversation style reminded me of the Stone Barrington series. The plot continued to build and twist clear to the end.
