New York City, May 1894. Mario Alfieri, a world-famous tenor, seeks only a house and few months of relative quiet before his Metropolitan Opera debut. Clara Adler, the dispossessed ward of a recently deceased millionaire, has secrets she has yet to discover. Their chance meeting in a Gramercy Park mansion kindles a love as swift as it is unexpected, entangles them in an intrigue stretching back two decades, and earns them an implacable enemy.
From the Publisher:
New York City, 1894. To Gramercy Park, bordered by elegant town houses, cloistered behind its high iron fence, comes Mario Alfieri, a celebrated tenor and the toast of Europe. Poised for his premier at the Metropolitan Opera, the summit of society, Alfieri needs a refuge from the clamor of New York’s elite . . . and from the eager women who rule it. He finds it, he thinks, at Gramercy Park, in the elegant mansion of the recently deceased Henry Ogden Slade. The house is available, but not quite empty. Clara Adler, Slade’s former ward, lives there still, friendless and alone. Who is this bewitching young woman? Why did Slade take her into his home, only to leave her penniless at his death? And what tragedies and terrors have left Clara little more than a pale and frightened ghost, haunting the deserted mansion? Mystified, then enchanted, Alfieri is soon involved in an intrigue that spans two decades and pits him against a vicious enemy who swears to destroy both him and the woman he loves . . . and whose weapons are scandal, murder, and the revelations of Clara’s past...
An evocative debut novel of murder, revenge, and obsession in New York City at the turn of the century follows Mario Alfieri, the world's greatest tenor, who arrives in New York City to escape Europe's adoration and too many loveless unions, but when a chance encounter in Gramercy Park with a beautiful woman results in a passionate love affair, Mario unexpectedly acquires a merciless enemy. Reader's Guide included. Reprint.

Praise

Kirkus Reviews
"Set in the early 1890s, the tale has trademark Wharton details...but...these seem contrived and artificial....As melodramatic and stagy as any opera, but without the compensations of music and singers." 11/15/2001
