Publisher's Summary

As a child, Meer Logan was haunted by memories of another time and place, always accompanied by the faint strains of elusive music. Now the past has reached out again in the form of a strange letter that sets her on a journey to Vienna to unlock the mystery of who she once was.

With each step she comes closer to remembering connections between a clandestine reincarnationist society, a lost flute linked to Ludwig van Beethoven, and David Yalom, a journalist who understands all too well how the past affects the future.

David knows loss firsthand—terrorism is a reality that cost him his family. He’s seen every solution promised by security experts around the world—and he’s seen every solution fail. Now, in a concert hall in Vienna, in a single, violent act he plans to force the world to understand the cost of those failures. Because those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.

What the Critics Say

"Although not exactly a sequel to The Reincarnationist (2007), this novel combines mystery and fantasy in the same way....recommended highly to readers who appreciate mysteries tinged with the supernatural." (Booklist)

"Rose skillfully blends past-life mysteries with present-day chills. The result is a smashing good read." (Publishers Weekly)

    "Can't recommend"

    Since I want to spend my credits wisely, I always read reviews and listen to the sample before I purchase a title. I did the same thing before selecting this title but it turned out to be a stinker anyway. The execution doesn't live up to the promise of the premise (not intended as a pun, but there you have it). The heroine is shrill and whiny. That's the way the narrator has portrayed her, but I think his interpretation is faithful since almost everything she says is insipid. I don't care for any of the characters and I am four hours into this thing.

    The writing is competent but not inspired. There is a lot of telling without showing, which is the hallmark of workmanlike writing. Certainly, there are times when telling is perfectly appropriate and advances the story. However, this novel relies entirely on telling and tedious conversation, making it read like a bad police procedural.

    I have fallen asleep every time I try to listen to this book. To summarize...... s n o r e.................
