Playing with Fire

(The fifth book in the Daniel Jacobus series)
A novel by

The latest Daniel Jacobus mystery holds a mirror to the glittery facade of the concert world, delving into the multimillion-dollar sleight-of-hand of violin dealing . . .

When an anxious phone call from obscure violinmaker Amadeo Borlotti disturbs Daniel Jacobus's Christmas Eve festivities, he and his dear friends Nathaniel and Yumi make light of it. A seemingly humble practitioner of his craft, Borlotti preferred the quiet life in the country away from the limelight. He even found love at an advanced age.

But his larceny, which began as a typographical error in a bill for a violin repair, grew incessantly. In the end he became a helpless captive of his past indiscretions and was consumed by it, and it is up to Jacobus and his team to find out how, and why.
