Just after his Carnegie Hall swansong beloved violinist and humanitarian Rene Allard is brutally murdered with a mysterious weapon. His young African American rival, BTower, is spotted at the scene of the crime hovering over the body of Allard with blood on his hands. In short order the aloof and arrogant BTower is convicted and sentenced to death, in part the result of the testimony of blind and curmudgeonly violin pedagogue Daniel Jacobus. Justice has been served...or has it? Jacobus is dragged back into the case kicking and screaming, and reluctantly follows a trail of broken violins and broken lives as it leads inexorably to the truth, and to his own mortal peril.
