In Genoa, rising opera singer Andrea Beaumont wanders in foggy streets, frightened of a voice which scares her saying she will find out before she dies, and drops a scarf which is picked up. Jessica enjoys Stella Knight's opera rehearsal, but director Drew Granger, also Andrea's ex-fiancé, is impossibly moody and cancels dinner. The police reports Andrea was found attacked in the street, but the doctor finds nothing wrong with her, so he just prescribes rest; her husband Jonas Cole arranges for extra security. Genoese Inspector Piero Amato suggests it's all merely a theatrical stunt. When Andrea tells Jonas she's returning to work, she gets a call with another dead threat. Amato now insists they leave her protection to the police- the NYPD has faxed her stalker there, Albert Garmes, was released five weeks earlier but never misses parole there. Jessica witnesses another threat call, in the same voice, now taped; the recording makes Rudolfo 'Rudi' Petrocelli prime suspect; he meanwhile makes a blackmail call. The jealous opera people scheme about contract breeches even more then usual given the extra publicity. During a power cut a prop dagger is drawn, but the wielder scared off before he can cut Andrea. Jessica and Amato know Garmes disappeared ten days ago, but was not seen in Italy. Petrocelli is shot by his intended blackmail-victim, and found by Jonas, who picked up his own gun, but denies to have shot in self-defense, so he's arrested. Drew's contract allows him to leave for New York, as he wanted, because of Petrocelli's death, and he announces to do so. Jessica finds proof the body was dead hours before Jonas entered, and the voice analysis did not match after all: the killer is still out, and Andrea gets another call...- Written by KGF Vissers
In Italy, Jessica Fletcher tries to help a friend, opera diva Andrea Beaumont, who is being stalked and threatened by someone who is apparently out to kill her. A year before in New York City, she had been attacked and traveling to Italy doesn't seem to have shaken her pursuer loose. There is much tension in the opera company where Andrea is to perform. The manager, Rudolfo Petrocelli, is up to no good and the company is in financial difficulty. Andrea's arrival has displaced the company's regular soprano, Stella Knight, who is out for blood as a result. The concert maestro, Drew Granger, is madly in love with the married Andrea whose husband Jonas Cole is appropriately jealous. When Petrocelli is found shot to death, Jonas is arrested for murder and it's up to Jessica to untie a very clever knot.- Written by garykmcd
