An employee loaned me this book after I told him how difficult it is to get from the local library. Excited to start reading it.
When a violinist is brutally murdered in his locked room in Edinburgh, Scotland Yard sends inspector Ian Frey to investigate alongside the very Scottish Detective McGray. McGray's division investigates the supernatural and Frey is a sceptic. This story had exactly what I was looking for in an October read: atmosphere, insanity, a cursed musical instrument, devil lore. It was spooky at times, funny at others, and intense.
