Midori plays and teaches violin, and she likes sushi. She's single but there is a Danish man who is interested. She's from Vancouver, where the tale is set. Unfortunately the Dane had argued with the late cellist and the police are very interested in the pair of them. Midori doesn't want to think the maestro could be involved, but if he is she might be in danger. Then she starts receiving harassment like a break-in. In theory this is exactly what a killer would not do, because every crime scene means more potential clues for the police. But there is more than one unsavoury issue.
Classical music fans will enjoy the regular name dropping about composers, concertos and symphonies. The book tends to dialogue rather than strong action and the minutiae of lives are explored in the search for the killer. The mystery is on the cosy side and suitable for teen readers if they choose.
I was sent an ARC for unbiased review.
The author introduces each of the supporting characters and their role in the plot. Midori innocently begins asking questions and finds information changing her feelings towards Hans. Hans is not the man she thought he was. Fox introduces the antagonist, keeping readers guessing the murderer’s name. The author keeps building suspense and increases the momentum of the story. Midori’s investigation puts her in danger, but refuses to stop her investigation. Someone ransacks Midori’s apartment, and she looks to JT for comfort and protection. Even the police are asking Midori to stop after attacks keep happening. The threats and attacks put readers on pins and needles, Fox adds twists and turns building towards the answers. Readers are kept in suspense as each spine-tingling event moves them towards an unforgettable ending. Sarah Fox delivers murder mystery with believable characters and earns a thumbs up
Life is good for Midori Bishop, a violinist with the Point Grey Philharmonic Orchestra. Her relationship with the handsome and charismatic maestro, Hans is moving forward, and the renovations of the Abrams Center are almost complete.
After Midori discovers the strangled body of Jeremy Ralston, a cellist with more enemies than friends, suspicion falls on Hans. Earlier in the evening, Midori witnessed the two arguing, but she cannot believe that Hans is a murderer. Determined to prove his innocence and point the police towards the real killer, Midori starts asking questions – questions that point her towards the killer, and make the killer aware of her. If Midori isn’t careful, her investigation may mean its curtains for her.
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.
I received an advanced reader copy of Dead Ringer from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
