Synopsis

Includes CD of the piano music of Mozart, with orchestra, and solo, performed by the author. Stranded in Milan by a train strike, a down-on-his-luck music scholar finds a mysterious document. Could it be the diary Mozart kept when he was an adolescent, traveling through Europe with his father? If authentic, the diary could catapult Matthew Pierce into wealth and fame. His search for the truth leads him into a dazzling world of Europe's wealthiest and most gifted musicians and aristocrats. But the brilliance of his surroundings is clouded by intrigue, threats, and murder. Matthew becomes both searcher and prey, and the peril mounts. Traveling across Europe with an entourage of divas and gentry, Matthew unravels the fiendish plots that threaten him and his friends, while giving us the Mozart diary, a new and delightful insight into the world of one of the greatest musicians ever to have lived. Harrison Slater, internationally known Mozart scholar and performer, makes a terrific debut into the world of literary mysteries.
