I think this has been my favorite Tess Gerritsen novel in a while. This flowed so nicely. Who would think that music could cause someone to do bad things. How would you feel if you thought your own daughter was trying to harm you. This book had a lot of twists and turns. I never knew where it was going to lead next. I loved it. Look forward to more of these.
Tess Gerritsen, the “New York Times” bestselling author of the Rizzoli & Isles series, now gives us a gripping stand-alone thriller. In a shadowy antiques shop in Rome, Julia Ansdell happens upon a curious piece of music the “Incendio” waltz and is immediately entranced by its unusual composition. The mournful minor key and complex feverish arpeggios appear to dance with a strange life of their own. Back in Boston, when Julia plays the notes for the first time, the music has a terrifying and unexplainable effect on her young daughter, who seems violently transformed. Determined to track down the music score s origins, Julia travels to Venice and uncovers a dark secret that not only dates back to the Second World War, but also directly involves a dangerously powerful family who will stop at nothing to keep Julia from bringing the truth to light.”
