Official Blurb:

Who is abducting talented young musicians – and why?
When a gifted violinist disappears from a prestigious music academy, the police ask psychologist Dr. Pippa Durrant to help with the case.
Working alongside new flame, DS Joe Swain, Pippa quickly realises that the world of first class musicianship is not all peace and harmony. Rather it seethes with envy, competition, sexual intrigue and murderous rage. Which means suspects are everywhere.
Faced with a stunningly complex case, Pippa will need all her lie detection skills if she is to uncover the horrifying truth. And, when she does, she finds she is in a terrifying race against time…

My Thoughts:

This is the third book in the Pippa Durrant series, although it is a stand-alone story it does refer back to previous events from the other books. So if you haven’t read books one and two, I recommend doing so before reading this one.
We are thrown into the world of music in the latest instalment of Pippa Durrant and Joe Swain. It is fast-paced, and anyone could be the ‘bad guy’! There are twists and turns, and you don’t know what to expect. Pippa is staying true to norm and remaining grumpy (I think she gets grumpier with each book). The music students and staff were a complex bunch, and I couldn’t get a handle on what everyone was saying, were they all lying, or all telling the truth? Edstols sounds like a terrifying place to study, really creepy, along with being oppressive.
As with all of Rijks’ books, this is very well-developed, the research she does into each topic that the books cover is very detailed and thoughtfully carried out. The book is well-written and keeps you hooked until the end; I am so glad I discovered this author as I am loving her books. It is really nice to get more of Pippa’s back story in the book. We find out a little more about what happened to Flo, and I’m hoping we do get to investigate her disappearance at some point in one of the future books.
