Overview

Ivan Davis, former editor turned private detective, loves opera almost as much as he loves good food and sexy sopranos. Singing in the chorus at the Opera Cafe in Santa Monica combines all of his pleasures.

The Mozart Code was the first book I 'read' electronically. It is a well crafted mystery, with a likeable hero. The experience turned out to be not much different from regular reading.

At one point, my wife banished from the theater, where I was happily reading my bright screen, while some boring dancing was happening on stage. I would recommend the book and the 'electronic' experience.
