“This is a beautiful novel, a veritable concerto.” (Booklist)
I am an avid eclectic reader.
An interesting story about a musician that was famous as a child but did not continue playing on stage as an adult but took up teaching. It is a story of his self discovery with serving on a murder trail as a catalyst. Chandler did a good job narrating the story. Was my first time for both the author and narrator.
