The story focuses on classical pianist who has just lost her husband and best friend in the last 8 months. Her godchild (son of her best friend who has been murdered) is missing in Europe, and the grieving pianist, Maggie, is desperate to find him, as she had promised herself and her dead best friend, Sophia, to always keep him safe.
Lots of twists and turns to keep the reader interested. Lots of suspense, political intrigue and lost love. This novel has elements of vengeance, loss and courage. There are lots of good and enough bad guys to keep the reader interested. I enjoyed the authors way of telling a story with a fast paced, page turning theme and well thought out characters.
When I can not sleep I love to just cozy up with a great book, and this one kept me glued and I did not want to put it down. Loved all the suspense and her trying to find the child. The photograph will draw Maggie inexorably into a collision course with criminal forces, decades-old secrets, stolen art and musical artifacts.
What can be better bad guys, missing child and so much more all rolled into one. The story will keep you guessing just how this book will end, and who exactly played what role in each of these wild mysteries. For example, when Agent Sugarman of the FBI visits Maggie to get her help on the case, she is shown a picture of her first love, and the father of her 30-year-old son, thought to have died in war 30 years earlier
