Read The Rainaldi Quartet by Paul Adam
Mystery fans as well as music lovers will enjoy reading The Rainaldi Quartet by Paul Adam. A violin maker living in rural Italy plays in a quartet with his friend Rainaldi, the parish priest, and a police detective. Rainaldi is murdered while being involved with suspicious characters during a search for a rare and magnificent violin. After the priest conducts the funeral, the detective begins his investigation with the help of a violin maker who has knowledge of construction and of history of violins. As they travel across Italy and England tracking down clues and suspects, a rich and subtle tale unfolds. Adams has written this tale with all the care and craftsmanship that Stradivari put into his instruments. It is full of commentary on Italian city life and fascinating historical and musical detail.
