A woman and her young son flee to a convent on a remote island off the Breton coast of France. Generations of seafarers have named the place Ile de la Brume, or Fog Island. In a chapel high on a cliff, a tragic death occurs and a terrified child vanishes into the mist.
The child's godmother, Maggie O'Shea, haunted by the violent deaths of her husband and best friend, has withdrawn from her life as a classical pianist. But then a recording of unforgettable music and a grainy photograph surface, connecting her missing godson to a long-lost first love.
The photograph will draw Maggie inexorably into a collision course with criminal forces, decades-long secrets, stolen art and musical artifacts, and deadly terrorists. Her search will take her to the Festival de Musique, Aix-en-Provence, France, where she discovers answers to her husband's death, an unexpected love - and a musical masterpiece lost for decades.
A compelling blend of suspense, mystery, political intrigue, and romance, The Lost Concerto explores universal themes of loss, vengeance, courage, and love.

There are no reviews for this title yet.
The reader and the descriptive passages - for example 'he regarded her with his two blue eyes' - most people have two eyes, no need to remark on it.
That I could only bear to listen to half an hour of it - such a waste of money.
Her slow, drawling reading and her appalling attempt at a man's Irish accent
ANGER that I wasted my time on it
I shall never choose another book by this author and shall also take care to avoid this narrator.
