A puzzle that only a musician could solve; a mystery that only a musician could write. Join concert pianist Arthur Singer, 30, in his 18th season on tour. Experience with him, not a routine college visit, but a panoply of characters old and young, an electric romance sparked by music, and a tragic death.

Acclaimed pianist-author JAMES BOYK inducts the reader into music's mysteries: the performer's mind during a concert; the heart of the teacher-student relationship; and how the soul of the artist, cradled by music, may be torn asunder by the tensions of a career.

For lovers of music and mystery, for those fascinated by the complexities of human characters and the intricacies of detective stories, this book offers a unique blend, in language precise, unexpected and transparent, and with music penetrating the entire fabric of the story.
