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. ( )

Somewhere below a tide washes away the last sandy traces of one of the most deservedly neglected composers who ever lived, and Immergluck feels as if he has been hired to go out and find the Lost Chord. How do you steal a composer? he thinks. More to the point: Why would anyone want to?… (more)
