The Hidden Auditorium

When Richard Wagner died in Venice in 1883, it was the end of a creative and tumultuous life. His family grieved, and the world lost a brilliant composer.
Nearly 130 years later, antiques dealer Nic Manton is led to a valuable pendant he feels provides a solution to his precarious finances. With no idea of its meaning or provenance, he is mystified why the pendant creates such fear and confusion, and aggravates rather than solves his problems. Its apparent owner is beautiful but erratic. She leads him from Rome to Venice and then to Malta, on a chase that becomes more perplexing and dangerous than it has to be. Could it be that the dead composer's skull is hidden in a Venetian palace? A melancholic widow and a brilliant but vague professor are willing to help with the mystery. But Manton doubts whether they can.

“… beautifully written.” Boyd Lemon

An exhilarating story of romance and historical intrigue, The Hidden Auditorium is an atmospheric journey that tantalizes devotees of classical music, pleases lovers of old jewellery, and intrigues fans of traditional mysteries. Staged in beautiful locations for which Rosanne Dingli’s work has become much sought-after, this is a novel of extraordinary power.
