This new murder mystery is exciting and wonderfully written. I couldn't put it down. I'm a violinist in an orchestra, so naturally I was very interested when I heard about this book. I would highly recommend this book, whether you have a particular interest in music or not!

Rena Fruchter in her new book, “The Orchestra Murders” published by Andrews UK Limited takes us into the life of Detective Cynthia Masters.
From the back cover: Superstar conductor Sir Gregory Langhorne and his globe-trotting, violin-soloist son Jonathan Langhorne are the best of friends-until a brutal murder shatters their lives and Jonathan becomes the prime suspect. Six years later, Sir Gregory is now the music director of the world famous Philadelphia Symphony Orchestra and has finally reconciled with his son Jonathan, just as members of the orchestra are being killed off one by one. The challenge for brilliant young hotshot Philadelphia Detective Cynthia Masters is to solve not only the orchestra murders, but the question of why murder seems to follow the Langhornes. Has Masters finally met her match-a case that cannot be solved? Set in London and Philadelphia, this dramatic story of murder, infidelity, and the abuse of money and power establishes Cynthia Masters as a world-class detective in this thrilling and unusual mystery.
Who would have thought that being with a Symphony Orchestra could be so dangerous? You would think that members of an orchestra would be able to get along considering that whenever they perform they all have to work together to create their music and harmony. Not in this book. There is a deranged murderer on the loose and he is targeting the members of the Philadelphia Symphony Orchestra. Now it is up to Cynthia Masters to investigate and figure out who this madman is before the body count goes up much higher. I just enjoyed the setting for this book. I never have heard of a murder mystery taking place within a symphony orchestra. Not only does Cynthia have to solve who the murderer is she has to figure out why murder seems to be attracted to the Langhornes. Ms. Fruchter has written a highly clever murder mystery that will keep you guessing and flipping pages as fast as you can read them to find out what will happen next. Ms. Fruchter has given us a very exciting thriller in “”The Orchestra Murders” that is full of backstage intrigue that we have never encountered before. I am glad I found this talented author and am already looking forward to the next book in this series.
