Sarah Broadhurst's view...

A thriller with a refreshingly different slant for here the chase, the mystery, the duplicity and skulduggery all revolve around a multi-million pound world of musical instruments, in particular a Stradivarius.

Comparison: Paul Carson, Robert Harris, Philip Hook.

Similar this month: Ann Granger, Lisa Gardner.

Who is Sarah Broadhurst

Synopsis

Sleeper by Paul Adam

Rainaldi was a violin-maker and when he was discovered slumped over his workbench, murdered with one of his own chisels, both the police and his friends are at a loss to discover a motive. Then it comes to light that Rainaldi had believed he was on the track of an infamous Stradivari - twin to the one housed in the Asmolean Museum and subject to two hundred years of myth and rumour. With nothing else to go on his two close friends pick up the search from where he left off, and plunge headlong into a world where great musical instruments change hands for millions, where forgery is an art form and where murder is often a dealer's chosen method of negotiation.

Reviews

'Tension that resonates like flawlessly tuned strings … complex and sumptuously pleasing.' The Guardian
