Description
On New Year's Day, 1900, violinist Sebastian Cavendish is found dead, in this fifth novel from mathematician Catherine Shaw (following The Riddle of the River). The last few days of Sebastian's life are a mystery, but in the final hours of 1899 he wrote a cryptic note about a "cursed inheritance," took poison, and died in agony. Yet his friends and colleagues are utterly perplexed—why should this vivacious, exuberant, and extroverted man disappear for days, only to throw away a bright future and take his own life? Detective Vanessa Weatherburn investigates the dead musician's final movements, in a journey that will reveal to her the science of genetics, the history of Sebastian's equally brilliant grandfather, and the long-kept secrets of the Cavendish family.

"Seasoned with wit and intelligence and made out of unusual and interesting ingredients.... A clever concoction."—Literary Review
