    Description

    From New York Times best-selling author Tasha Alexander comes the latest installment in the Lady Emily series. Death in St. Petersburg is a gripping new audiobook that will mesmerize fans of historical fiction and classic mysteries alike.

    After the final curtain of Swan Lake, an animated crowd exits the Mariinsky theatre brimming with excitement from the night's performance. But outside, the scene is somber. A ballerina's body lies face down in the snow, blood splattered like rose petals over the costume of the Swan Queen. The crowd is silenced by a single cry - "Nemetseva is dead!"

    Among the theatergoers is Lady Emily, accompanying her dashing husband, Colin, in Russia on assignment from the Crown. But it soon becomes clear that Colin isn't the only one with work to do. When the dead ballerina's aristocratic lover comes begging for justice, Emily must apply her own set of skills to discover the rising star's murderer. Her investigation takes her on a dance across the stage of Tsarist Russia, from the opulence of the Winter Palace to the modest flats of ex-ballerinas and the locked attics of political radicals. A mysterious dancer in white follows closely behind, making waves through St. Petersburg with her surprise performances and trail of red scarves. Is it the sweet Katenka, Nemetseva's childhood friend and favorite rival? The ghost of the murdered étoile herself? Or something even more sinister?

    The best yet

    My favorite Lady Emily story. Ms. Alexander is at her best once again. I can’t wait for her next book.

    decent story but not great

    I really like the series but this one not so much...just not equal plot to earlier books.

    Plodding

    I have enjoyed most of the books in the series, but I found this one agonizingly slow and lacking in suspense. I started skipping chapters to get to the end, something I never do. Pass on this one.

    Yet another triumph

    Loved this story and the careful, rich descriptions of the Romanov court just 17 years before it came to an end.

    Somewhat confusing

    I am not a fan of switching between a backstory and the “present” as it can be confusing and interrupts the flow of the narrative

    Bianca Amato is Amazing!

    The audio version wouldn’t be the same without Ms. Amato’s narration. Her ability to pronounce many of the Russian locations, speak with a Russian accent, and also carry many different male and female parts was pure joy.
