Summary
Brodie Moncur is a piano tuner, as brilliant in his own way as John Kilbarron, the pianist Brodie accompanies on all of his tours. It is a luxurious life, and a level of success Brodie could hardly have dreamed of growing up in a remote Scottish village, in a household ruled by a tyrannical father. But Brodie would gladly give it all up for the love of the Russian soprano Lika Blum: beautiful, worldly, seductive-- and consort to Kilbarron. Brodie's passion for Lika only grows as their lives become increasingly more intertwined, more secretive, and, finally, more dangerous. What Brodie doesn't know about Lika, and about her connection to Kilbarron and his sinister brother, Malachi, eventually tests Brodie's ability, and will, to survive. -- adapted from publisher info
