Death in A Major book review



A Music Lover’s Mystery

By Sarah Fox

I sing in a chorus that periodically performs with a symphony orchestra. I’ve been privy to some of what goes on behind the scenes and have often  thought that the milieu would be a great setting for a mystery. I was right. And darn if Sarah Fox didn’t beat me to it with Death in A Major, her latest Music Lover’s Mystery.

When her symphony’s biggest donor dies right in the middle of a post-concert reception, violinist Midori just cannot help herself. She suspects foul play and has to try to piece together details she observed and conversations she overheard to determine who the killer is.

I don’t read very many mysteries, and I really enjoyed this one. Fox has a distinct voice and an engaging heroine. The plot takes enough twists and turns to keep you guessing. The romance blossoming on the side is a nice touch too.

I’m happy to have discovered this author and look forward to more books from her.

About the Book

The new season for the Point Grey Philharmonic starts off on a sour note when one of the symphony’s wealthy benefactors drops dead in the second Music Lover’s Mystery from author Sarah Fox.

When Archibald Major, local big wig and nasty tyrant, drops dead at a post-concert reception, violinist Midori Bishop soon suspects foul play. Although Midori has no intention of getting involved in another murder investigation, that all changes when Jordan – her violin student and the victim’s grandson – seeks her help convincing the police that the real killer is his uncle, a low-level criminal.

As Midori digs into the victim’s life, she discovers that he was a man who created discord at every turn, even within his own family, and there is no shortage of potential suspects. When someone close to Midori unexpectedly confesses to the crime, Midori must race to discover the identity of the true killer before an innocent person goes to jail for a crime they didn’t commit… and before Midori herself becomes a victim in the killer’s deadly encore.

“While Midori may be clueless in love, she is good at asking questions. It is easy to understand how difficult it is for her to leave the investigating to the police, particularly once she has begun. Her actions are believable, if at times rash. Dead Ringer is an entertaining cozy with just the right amount of suspense. It is a great choice for reading on a lazy summer afternoon.”
