"Into the picture David Weiss brings Jason Otis, a young American musician and composer, who with his bride Deborah, decides to invstigate the circumstances of Mozart's death and funeral. Armed with a commission for Beethoven, they set forth from Boston in 1823. The search takes them to New York, to London, Salzburg and the forbidding police state of Vienna. It involves Beethoven and Schubert, the Emporer, Prince Metternich, the women in Mozart's life, and Salieri-the imperial Kapellmeister, and the composer's bitterest enemy. It lays bare a world that is pitiless, corrupt, and devastating-and against it the genius of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, struggling between the sacred and profane.

Mozart just completed "The Magic Flute" and died suddenly and unexpectedly in1791 where his body disappeared into an unknown grave. Rumors of enemies, poison, assassination abounded.
