The message drips in blood off of the wall, beginning a spiral of events that will take Chrispen and Alexis Brooks through the depths of hell and back, as they discover that some things in life are worth fighting for.
When Chrispen and her virtuoso violinist husband agree to his first foreign appearance in five years--a performance of Schumann's Violin Concerto on the two-hundredth anniversary of the composer's birth, in the town where he was born--they never anticipate the many ways the Lost Concerto will affect their lives, and the lives of those they love, forever.
The Lost Concerto is the second book in the exciting, fast-reading, tightly-plotted suspense series that started with Concerto.

I had been looking so forward to reading the second book in this series and was so happy when I did! After reading the 1st book, Concerto, I had been so interested to know more about Chrispen & Alexis Brooks and their lives. This book was perfect! It had mystery, intrigue, action and love … what more could a girl want! I love to see a strong female character that can be afraid or emotional … but when it comes down to it she won’t back down! She’ll stand up and fight and do whatever it takes to save the lives of those she loves! Which Chrispen surely does in this book! Once I started, I finished in a day because it kept me on the edge of my seat wondering “how are they going to get out of THAT!!” It was awesome!
The Lost Concerto by Sandra Miller is the second book in the Alexis Brooks Series. It follow the same format as the first book with the parts of the book being broken down into concert terminology. I'll skip the plot line as I really can't think of a way to express anything without spoiling book I in the series. This book had a bit less of the thriller aspect than the first book, it was staged a bit more like an action/espionage book with kidnappings and international settings. I enjoyed this book quite a bit, but there was one major thing that bothered me. It involved a certain character maintaining contract through a cell phone when the easiest thing in the world would have been to monitor it or just take it away. Even with that bothering me a little bit as the story progressed it was still a very entertaining story. There was a bit more resolution of issues discovered in the first book and if there are more books to come in the series I will be sure to check them out as well.
