Murder and Mendelssohn

Производитель: "Книга по Требованию"

To the accompaniment of heavenly choirs singing, the fearless Miss Phryne Fisher returns in her 20th adventure with musical score in hand. An orchestral conductor has been found dead and Detective Inspector Jack Robinson needs the delightfully incisive and sophisticated Miss Fisher`s assistance to enter a world in which he is truly lost. Hugh Tregennis, not much liked by anyone, has been murdered in a most flamboyant mode by a killer with a point to prove. But how many killers is Phryne really stalking? While Mendelssohn`s Elijah, memories of the Great War, and the science of deduction ring in her head, Phryne`s past must also play its part as MI6 become involved in the tangled web of murders. Kerry Greenwood`s novels include the Corinna Chapman series and the Phryne Fisher mysteries, as well as many books for young adults. She is not married, has no children, lives with a registered Wizard, and when she is not writing she stares blankly out the window. www. phrynefisher. com ISBN:9781464202476
