A notable Canadian crime debut and the most recent addition to our acclaimed international of Crime series.MacNeice, a senior police detective within the southern Ontario commercial urban of Dundurn, is coming back from a pilgrimage to his wife's grave while he is known as to against the law scene of singular and annoying attractiveness. a tender lady in night costume lies gracefully posed at the ground of a pristine summer time cottage in order that the finger of 1 hand on a regular basis interrupts the needle arm of a phonograph enjoying the Schubert Piano Trio. the one seen mark on her is the bruise below her chin, which MacNeice acknowledges: it's the mark that distinguishes committed violinists, an analogous mark that when graced his spouse. The homicide is either creative and terrible, and shortly entangles MacNeice and his crew in japanese Europe's historic grievances, which succeed in out to breach all of the partitions which have been thrown as much as retain the previous at bay.MacNeice needs to use his best suited yet unorthodox powers of commentary to stem the tide of occasions threatening to erase any hint of reminiscence or heritage, leaving the objective of the crime bare within the face of loss.
