Three gorgeous shifters. A queen fallen from grace. One formidable Chinese quest.

It seems as though the whole world is turning against me…

Now that Ero is gone and Roan is barely able to look me in the eye, my heart is broken. I would have jumped ship long ago if it weren’t for Li.

Upon arriving in China, I soon realize that this kingdom may prove to be the most daunting of challenges yet. Suspicion and stares seem to follow us wherever we go, and we are sure to be noticed…and not just by those who wish to help. With my life and honor at stake, I don’t know how I’m going to convince one of the greatest kingdoms on earth to join us, but this is my last chance.

Can I persuade the Emperor to help us or will he see Li as a threat to the throne?

Li.

My violet-eyed leopard.

My soul comforter.

My Warrior.

Murder at the Peking Opera by Amanda Roberts

After helping Prince Kung avert an international disaster and negotiating with Inspector Gong’s mother for his betrothal to Concubine Swan, Lady Li takes a well-deserved evening to enjoy the first public performance by a female Peking opera performer. But her relaxing night out takes a dramatic turn when a murder is committed on stage during the performance.

Inspector Gong’s attempt at finding a distraction from the troubles in his heart is thwarted when he and Lady Li attend the same opera performance. Thankfully, a murder in front of hundreds of people plunges him into a world usually hidden behind curtains and costumes.

The empress has decreed that women can now play female roles in Peking’s beloved operas. But few women have been willing to undertake the challenge and risk the wrath of the more conservative opera patrons. When the first woman willing to step into the role of the “dan” becomes the prime suspect in the murder of her co-star, Lady Li begs Inspector Gong to delay in arresting the actress and find the real killer before the woman is executed for the crime. With the future of Chinese theater hanging in the balance, Inspector Gong must try to find the truth among people who mask their real faces for a living.

Will Lady Li and Inspector Gong discover the killer? Or will the empress’s first attempt at social change lose its head before it finds its footing?

Take a peek behind the curtain at the fascinating world of Chinese opera in Murder at the Peking Opera, book 3 in the Qing Dynasty Mystery Series.
