An intelligent mystery that revolves around the classical world. I loved the references to not only some of the great composers but to some of their actual pieces. It is also refreshing to read a mystery based on discovering the identity of the thief as opposed to the murderer. I did struggle a bit in the beginning to get into the story and weed out just who is who however I liked the aloof sleuth and overall enjoyed the book. ( )
