Overview

Legend has it that Beethoven wrote a tenth symphony...and made it music to die for.

When world-famous conductor Nicholas Vranos finds his best friend murdered backstage at Carnegie Hall, he's plunged into a maelstrom of intrigue swirling around Beethoven's mythical Tenth Symphony. Discovered in Vienna, the musical manuscript has left a trail of betrayal and death on its journey to New York City.

Although Nicholas is her main suspect, N.Y.P.D. Detective Anna Salazar finds herself turning to the dark, charismatic maestro for help as she navigates the Byzantine world of classical music.

With a hysterical violinist as the only witness and a scrap of musical doodles as the only clue, Anna finds herself drawn into Nicholas's web of seduction and power. As passion explodes between them, she must decide how much she can trust him, both with the case and with her heart.

Nancy Herkness¿ Music of the Night takes us into the realm of classical music set in the world-famous Carnegie Hall. Ms. Herkness builds suspense the way a master composer creates a symphony. She weaves mesmerizing sexual tension with the discordant terror of a murderer loose in Carnegie Hall, never losing the rhythm of the lovers¿ dance. New York Detective Lieutenant Anna Salazar is in charge of the murder investigation. World-renowned conductor Nicholas Vranos not only found his friend¿s body, but further discoveries link him to this murder. Anna¿s inquiries reveal more bizarre connections, including newly discovered Beethoven¿s 10th symphony. Maestro Nicholas Vranos is a leading authority on Beethoven. When the truth is revealed, more lives are at stake, building to a dramatic crescendo in the story¿s spellbinding climax. Bravo!! Ms. Herkness has another winner in Music of the Night.

This was such a fun read. All the elements of the story tied together exceptionally well. From the great romance and clever murder mystery to the incredibly interesting musical background it was a fun read that really left me wanting to read another book from the author very soon.

A romantic and sexy backstage tour of the famous Carnegie Hall -- with a charismatic and talented hero, a fiercely determined and passionate heroine, a possibly priceless musical score, and a sprinkling of dangerous villains. All in all, an excellent read with a dramatic beginning, a very satisfying ending, and some very hot moments in between!

I couldn't put this one down until I'd read the last page! The suspense was excellent, the romance thrilling, and the writing was superb. This one is a treat to read!
