Product Description

After losing everyone she loves, concert pianist Liesl Bower has nowhere to go but to escape into her music. Searching for the peace she usually finds in her concertos and sonatas, Liesl can't shake the feeling that she is being haunted by her past...and by someone following her. As she's giving a concert for the president in Washington D.C., she looks out into the audience to see a man that she'd seen before--that eerie face--she'd seen that face the night her Harvard professor was attacked, and now he's back!

Publisher's Description

After losing everyone she loves, concert pianist Liesl Bower has nowhere to go but to escape into her music. Searching for the peace she usually finds in her concertos and sonatas, Liesl can't shake the feeling that she is being haunted by her past . . . and by someone following her. When she spots a familiar and eerie face in the audience of a concert she's giving for the president in Washington, DC, the scariest day of her life comes back to her with a flash. It has been fifteen years since Liesl watched her beloved Harvard music mentor assaulted on a dark night in Moscow and just as long since the CIA disclosed to her that he'd been spying for Russia. She had seen that man--that eerie face--the night Professor Devoe was attacked. And now he's back--and coming for her.

On the run and struggling to rely on the protection of CIA agent Ava Mullins and handsome newspaper reporter Cade O'Brien, Liesl learns she is the prey of an underground cell of Russian KGB agents determined to restore their country to its former Soviet might. But what she doesn't know is that she is in possession of something--a piece of sheet music--that Russian intelligence is now frantic to find. Inside that music is a secret code, the hidden transcriptions of her deceased mentor, that clearly identify a Russian mole operating inside Israel's Department of Defense, a mole with enough power and access to execute a daring assassination that no one would see coming.

Caught in a deadly conflict between American and Russian undercover agents, this innocent young pianist is just trying to survive her own personal trauma. Through it all, Liesl must learn that no matter how dark her world grows or how fiercely her enemies pursue her, God is still in control--if only she can yield herself to His grace.

Publisher's Weekly

Duffy (Fatal Loyalty) opens a new series with pianist Liesl Bower, who is thrust into danger after a concert at the White House brings back a face from her past. Fifteen years earlier, her music teacher was murdered and she learned that he had been a spy for Russia His system for transmitting information involved sheet music, a piece of which is in Liesl's possession, making her a target for rogue Russians seeking to restore a Soviet regime. That plot extends to Israel and depends on a mole in that country’s defense establishment. Liesl has family trauma in her past as well, and everything comes to a crescendo once the CIA steps in to protect her. Duffy has concocted an intricate plot, and not every thread is equally well developed. A villain in a key position doesn’t convince, and the Israel connection is underplumbed. The characterizations, though, mostly work: old Ian O’Brien steals the show. A very pious president will warm Christian hearts but leave others unpersuaded. The pop-pop-pop of surprise resolutions at the end makes a fine coda. (Jan.) Copyright 2011 Reed Business Information.
