Description
This seventh novel in the Frederick Troy series (following Second Violin) begins with seemingly unconnected threads. In 1934 Vienna, 10-year-old cello prodigy Meret Voytek becomes a pupil of exiled concert pianist Viktor Rosen. On the Isle of Man in 1940, an interned Hungarian physicist is recruited for the Manhattan Project in Los Alomos. At Auschwitz in 1944, Meret is spared death so long as she plays cello in the camp orchestra. And in London, after the war, Viktor Rosen tries unsuccessfully to relinquish his Communist Party membership. These lives violently collide following a murder on a London Underground platform, revealing an intricate web of secrecy and deception that Troy must unravel. Troy is no hero; there are many who would say he belongs behind bars himself. Yet this son of wealthy Russian immigrants left behind his fortune and his family expectations to join Scotland Yard's "murder squad" in John Lawton's gripping, espionage-tinged series of thrillers.

"John Lawton's books contain such a wealth of period detail, character description and background information that they are lifted out of any category. Every word is enriched by the author's sophistication and irreverent intelligence, by his meticulous research and his wit."Literary Review
