The first time violinist Julia Ansdell picked up the "Incendio Waltz" in a darkened antique shop in Rome, she knew it was a strikingly unusual composition. The minor key and complex feverish arpeggios have a life of their own. But when she plays the piece, Julia blacks out and awakens to find her small daughter implicated in acts of surprising violence. When she travels to Venice to find the previous owner of the music, she uncovers a heart-stoppingly dark secret....

I had a very difficult time doing other things once I started listening. Good way to learn about the part female spies played in WWI.

Attorney David Winter kicks back on the Florida beach, soaking in the sunshine and watching the ladies stroll by. When his old Army buddy, Sean, asks him to defend his aunt in a murder case, David doesn’t think twice and leaves the sun and sand for Missouri’s ice and snow to help his old pal. Seems Aunt Sharon’s pastime was killing husbands and getting rich off their insurance policies. The more David investigates, the more accomplices keep coming out of the woodwork.

Everybody seems to have gone crazy in the little mountain community of Big Lake, Arizona. Neighbors are threatening violence, eco-protestors are on the march, flower children are camping in the nearby forest, two of Sheriff Jim Weber's deputies have gotten into a fistfight in the ButterCup Café, the grocery store manager has locked himself in his office and won't come out, bears are chasing dogs into houses, and somebody has stolen the town's mascot.
