(The first book in the Crown Prince Gregory of Hirtenstein series)
A novel by Tessa Barclay
Gregory Crowne is a concert agent with a difference. His real name is Crown Prince Gregory of Hirtenstein and, although he likes to play down his royal background, there are times when it comes in useful. Even billionaire Japanese businessmen, men such as Takamasa Shige, tend to be awed in the presence of this aristocratic, elegant, yet unassuming gentleman. So when a priceless cello is stolen from Crowne's star performer at the Edinburgh Festival - the celebrated Finnish maestro, Talik Edder - the crown prince finds himself unexpectedly cast in the role of sleuth. And when a strange case of food poisoning strikes at the hotel where his various clients are staying, killing one of them, he will need to rely on brains rather than blue blood to unearth the truth.
