Devil's Trill Publisher's Summary

Devil's Trill - a mystery in sonata-allegro form - is the first-ever audiobook to integrate musical passages that provide clues to solving the mysteries!

Author Gerald Elias, a renowned concert violinist himself, performs the music. Blind, sharp-tongued violinist Daniel Jacobus, living in self-imposed exile in rural New England, is drawn into mysterious crimes in New York City. A stolen Stradivarius - a strangled teacher of child prodigies - Jacobus is not only the chief investigator of these misdeeds, he's the prime suspect! A police detective hot on his tail, Jacobus roams the bucolic Berkshires, hallowed Carnegie Hall, and tradition-bound Japan, searching for answers only he can see. With alluring student Yumi and jazz-loving Nathaniel at his side, Jacobus feels his way through self-doubt and darkness.

The shadowy spheres of classical music and steamy streets of the Big Apple give noir a new meaning in the first mystery novel in the gripping Daniel Jacobus series.
