One of the glorious Rutshire Chronicles

'Wildly funny, unashamedly romantic, terrifyingly creepy' Spectator

Sir Robert Rannaldini, the most successful but detested conductor in the world, had two ambitions: to seduce his ravishing nineteen-year-old stepdaughter Tabitha Campbell-Black, and to put his mark on musical history by making the definitive film of Verdi's darkest opera, Don Carlos.

As Rannaldini, his charismatic French director Tristan, and a volatile cast and crew gather at Rannaldini's haunted abbey for filming, it is inevitable that violent feuds, abandoned bonking, temperamental screaming, and devious plotting will ensue. But although everyone wished Rannaldini dead, no one actually thought the Maestro would be murdered. Or that after the dreadful deed some very bizarre things would continue to occur.

Praise for Score!

A deliciously funny, lusty, riproaring read with the added dimension of suspense and murder

Sally Feldman, Good Housekeeping

Absolutely wonderful, such fun and so busy and gossipy

Penny Vincenzi

Has all the usual Cooper ingredients, fantastically attractive male and female characters, lots of extra-marital affairs and dollops of good humour, but there is a difference in this novel as it is also a murder mystery

Linda Roberts, Daily Mail

I drew back in some alarm when told on its jacket that Score! was wildly funny, unashamedly romantic, terrifyingly creepy. I pressed bravely on nonetheless, and found with surprise that Score! is indeed all these things and even more

John Bayley, Spectator

Romance, glamour, seismic sex and delightful comedy... this book is a slice of heaven: pure, blissful escapism

Kate Saunders, New Statesman
