A Musical CaseBook - 2000
Police officer and classical music aficionado Michael Ohayon discovers that a dual murder is linked to the newly discovered sheet music for an unknown Vivaldi requiem. Reprint. 35,000 first printing.
Fourth in a series of popular, intellectually challenging mysteries from acclaimed Israeli author Batya Gur, Murder Duet features once again the smart, charming, and lonely police officer Michael Ohayon. After his cellist friend's father and brother--who are also well-known musicians--are brutally murdered, Ohayon, a classical music afficionado, sets out to solve the crime. From the opening pages, where the detective plays a compact disc of Brahm's First Symphony, to the newly discovered music for an unknown Vivaldi requiem that provides a rock-solid motive for the crime, lovers of crime novels, as well as music, will thrill to every dulcet note.
