Palais Garnier, Paris ... the opera house, the site of anti-Wagner riots of 1891, and setting for The Phantom of the Opera.

This is an historical novel intertwining modern times with France in the 19th Century. It could not be described as great literature, but it is enjoyable. The author, Kate Mosse, wrote a book I really enjoyed, titled Labyrinth, which is why I picked this one up. Plus it features the Tarot!

This book was somewhat disappointing. It was absorbing, and I enjoyed it, but there were repetitive phrases, a couple of holes in the plot, and the characters lacked depth.
