The Lost Concerto
by Helaine Mario
on Tour August 1-31, 2015
A woman and her young son flee to a convent on a remote island off the Breton coast of France. Generations of seafarers have named the place Ile de la Brume, or Fog Island. In a chapel high on a cliff, a tragic death occurs and a terrified child vanishes into the mist.
The child’s godmother, Maggie O’Shea, haunted by the violent deaths of her husband and best friend, has withdrawn from her life as a classical pianist. But then a recording of unforgettable music and a grainy photograph surface, connecting her missing godson to a long-lost first love.
The photograph will draw Maggie inexorably into a collision course with criminal forces, decades-long secrets, stolen art and musical artifacts, and deadly terrorists. Her search will take her to the Festival de Musique, Aix-en-Provence, France, where she discovers answers to the mystery surrounding her husband’s death, an unexpected love—and a musical masterpiece lost for centuries.
A compelling blend of suspense, mystery, political intrigue, and romance, The Lost Concerto explores universal themes of loss, vengeance, courage, and love.

The minute I started reading "The Last Concerto" I knew that I was not going to be able to put it down. The story was unbelievable full of danger and terror. I loved every twist and turn on every page. What starts as a horrible event leads to more horror and mystery until they are all woven together. This is the kind of novel that you want to read again to see if you missed any of the good parts. I give this book a 5/5. I was give this book by Partners in Crime Book Tours and all opinions are mine.
