The latest Daniel Jacobus mystery holds a mirror to the glittery façade of the concert world, delving into the multimillion-dollar sleight-of-hand of violin dealing . . . When an anxious phone call from obscure violinmaker Amadeo Borlotti disturbs Daniel Jacobus's Christmas Eve festivities, he and his dear friends Nathaniel and Yumi make light of it. A seemingly humble practitioner of his craft, Borlotti preferred the quiet life in the country away from the limelight. He even found love at an advanced age. But his larceny, which began as a typographical error in a bill for a violin repair, grew incessantly. In the end he became a helpless captive of his past indiscretions and was consumed by it, and it is up to Jacobus and his team to find out how, and why.

Daniel Jacobus, blind violinist, having honed his other senses so as to remain independent, sees connections others miss. It enriches the story to listen to some of the violin music mentioned as the three musicians work together to solve the mystery, which involves delving into insurance fraud and overseas shipping of musical instruments, as well as arson and murder. These are not the usual way to celebrate Christmas and New Year, but reading about winter is better than experiencing it, especially with Vivaldi playing as background.
