Joan Spencer’s daughter, Rebecca, falls for a virtuoso violinist at an international competition in Indianapolis, and Joan is drawn into a swarm of violinists, their host families, and their unspoken rivalries. When a rare Stradivarius is stolen, and the seductive violinist who owned it vanishes, Rebecca’s amiable fiancé is the prime suspect. With her own fiancé, Lt. Fred Lundquist, working a fatal hit-and-run in town, it’s up to Joan to uncover the simmering tensions beneath the players and to string together a theft, a disappearance, and a murder.
Admirers of Sara Hoskinson Frommer’s previous Joan Spencer mysteries will love this wonderful tale of ambitious musicians and small-town mayhem and will once again fall in love with Joan’s plucky determination to set things right.

The vanishing violinist delivers a story in charming color of family, internatinal level music competition,new beginnings, and mystery. I found it a pleasurable read and recommend it for leisure. The musical description and setting is cultured and fresh from the typical mystery!
