Praise

"Russell Martin’s brilliant tale about a long-treasured and peripatetic lock of Beethoven’s hair paints a compelling portrait of the immortal composer’s life, the high drama of Nazi persecution during World War II, and the mysterious world of contemporary forensic science, which is filled with subtle miracles."
–Todd Siler, author of Think Like a Genius

"An engrossing tale . . . When, toward the end of the book, the author writes of DNA tests on the hair that reveal new answers to the causes of Beethoven’s deafness and death, even the skeptic will share his enthusiasm for this peculiar subject. First-class history, and a fascinating exposition of forensic science."
