When death stages a performance at Carnegie Hall, Tecumseh Fox goes backstage to catch the killer who pulled the strings. Who stole the dead man’s Stradivarius—only to send it back? And what about the deadly duet featuring a stolen Ming vase and an afternoon cocktail laced with cyanide? Throw in an accompanist who plays all the wrong notes, a jealous sister straight out of Italian opera, and a chorus of suspects with a cacophony of lies and alibis. Suddenly Fox has to step up the temp before the killer makes an encore—a sinister sonata composed in the key of murder.Introduction by Sister Carol Anne O’Marie“A top-flight detective story.”—The New York Times Book Review
Rex Stout (1886–1975) wrote dozens of short stories, novellas, and full-length mystery novels, most featuring his two indelible characters, the peerless detective Nero Wolfe and his handy sidekick, Archie Goodwin.
“Rex Stout is one of the half-dozen major figures in the development of the American detective novel.”—Ross Macdonald
