Just after his Carnegie Hall swansong and before his imminent departure for retirement in France, beloved violinist and humanitarian Rene Allard is brutally murdered with a mysterious weapon.  His young African American rival, crossover artist BTower, is spotted at the scene of the crime hovering over the contorted body of Allard with blood on his hands.   In short order the aloof and arrogant BTower is convicted and sentenced to death, in part the result of the testimony of blind and curmudgeonly violin pedagogue Daniel Jacobus, like millions of others, an ardent admirer of Allard.  Justice has been done...or has it?  Jacobus is dragged back into the case kicking and screaming, and reluctantly follows a trail of broken violins and broken lives as it leads inexorably to the truth, and to his own mortal peril.

Praise for Danse Macabre

Praise for Danse Macabre:

“A musical feast for mystery and music lovers.”–Library Journal (starred review)

“The refreshingly caustic Jacobus, a cast of superbly drawn supporting characters, an interesting classical music mileu accessible to aficionados and neophytes alike, an unexpected twist or two, and a unique murder method combine for an engrossing read.”

Publishers Weekly

“There are riveting insights into violin bowing, maestros’ mannerisms and the interpretation of musical scores.” –Kirkus Reviews
