The Australian: MOZART’S LAST ARIA fresh spin on great composer’s demise

A great review of my latest novel MOZART’S LAST ARIA in The Australian, the top newspaper Down Under, is the latest in a number of articles to compare the book to the work of Dan “Da Vinci Code” Brown:

Code-breaking a la Dan Brown and probing the dark corners of 18th-century Austria, Rees concocts a brew that fans of historical crime fiction and Mozart will find hard to resist. Delivers a fresh spin on the great composer’s demise.

    Congratulations.

    Arturo Perez-Reverte has published some books that engage readers in ways similar to Brown that you might enjoy. Notably, The Seville Communion, Club Dumas, and The Flanders Panel, which requires a good knowledge of chess and painting.

    The Fencing Master is one of my favorites, too, Ruth. Given that I’ve been learning how to run through any cad and bounder who happens to cross one’s path as part of the research for my Caravaggio novel!
