Wien 1791. Vor sechs Wochen hat Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart den Verdacht geäußert, vergiftet worden zu sein. Nun, am 5. Dezember, ist er tot, Diagnose: «hitziges Frieselfieber».

Es erzählt die Geschichte ihrer Suche nach der Wahrheit, die sie in die Salons des Wiener Hochadels, in Geheimlogen und Konzertsäle, Palais und Opernsäle führt und mit den Komplotten österreichischer und preußischer Geheimdienste konfrontiert. Im Zentrum steht Mozarts letzte Oper «Die Zauberflöte», die den Schlüssel für das Geheimnis um Mozarts Tod enthalten mag.
