Publisher's Summary

In a masterful standalone thriller by New York Times bestselling author of the Rizzoli & Isles series, Tess Gerritsen, a mother is haunted by a very old piece of music she finds in a strange antique shop in Rome.
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 that not only dates back to the horrors of the Holocaust, but also directly involves a dangerously powerful family who would stop at nothing to keep Julia from bringing the truth to light.

Listened in one sitting!

This novel was so good that it could have been taken from WWII history. It is playing on my mind.

Aspects of the story were based on real places in Poland that left you aware of the terrible crimes committed against jews and their friends who tried to save them. In real life there were so many true heroes and each one deserved to have their story told.

The story readers were very good and the musicians ace. I hope to find the music somewhere to keep. Keep running audio at the end to hear solo violin that completes this presentation, haunting! This made Tess Gerritsens novel complete and extremely well finished. She is a clever talented writer with a wonderful team around her to present this work in a brilliant manner.
