he conclusion to the trilogy that began with The Rebel Angels and continued in the bestselling What's Bred in the Bone. The third volume of the Cornish trilogy has less mystery and suspense than The Rebel Angels and What's Bred in the Bone , but there are still rewards for the reader.


This is a deeper, more thoughtful and old-fashioned book, somewhat padded with leisurely asides, snippets of poetry and observations on the subject of artistic creativity. The plot revolves around a production of an unfinished opera by the 19th century composer E.T.A. Hoffmann, whose entreaty "Let the lyre of Orpheus open the door of the underworld of feeling" is borne out on many levels.
