Expectation

(2013)
(A book in the Francisca Fruscella series)
A novel by

 
On the surface a murder mystery - a detective's search for the killer of five people in Denver - Expectation is also, among other things, a meditation on the relationship between language and music.

In his newest novel, Jeffrey DeShell draws on the musical innovations of Arnold Schoenberg - by turns traditional, serial, and atonal - to inform his grammar and language. Moving progressively through specific Schoenberg compositions, DeShell complicates the surface of his text into lyrical derivatives, all the while drawing us into a murder mystery like no other as Detective Francisca Fruscella pursues both the killer and her own complicated personal history.

By turns rapturous, rigorous, and gripping, Expectation is a thriller of another kind - and a bold venture to the limits of the mystery genre and language itself.
