1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Bernie Koenig TOP 100 REVIEWER on June 30 2008
Format: Paperback
Music lovers and mystery lovers will love this book, since it is a mystery involving music.

Robert Schumann hears a sharp A major. Without giving anything away, what he hears is real.

We get a complext plot involving Schumann, his wife Clara and her father, along with the major piano tuner of the day and an obnoxious music critic.

We also get little sub plots involving the interaction of Schumann with Brahms and Liszt.

In short we get a real mystery set in a real historical context, involving real personalities.
And cenral to all this is Inspector Hermann Preiss, who has to make sense of all the goings on.

For people who like historiacl fiction, for people who love music, and for mystery lovers, this is one fine read.

A riveting mystery set in 1800's Germany July 11 2008
By Midwest Book Review - Published on
Format: Paperback
While skill at music is truly a magnificent thing, there are downsides to everything. "Murder in A-Major" is a story about a musical genius, blessed with great talent and cursed with jealous rivals who lust after his wife. When the musician is murdered well before his time, Inspector Hermann Priess is charged with finding out exactly who is responsible for this heinous crime, in this riveting mystery set in 1800's Germany. A top pick for mystery collections.
