‘You must have a curious taste, to love someone whom you believe to be capable of murder.’
Detective Superintendent Simon Hudson finds himself in a difficult position. Attending the Metropolitana Choir’s concert was intended to make him a supportive partner… not the head of a murder investigation. But when the conductor drops dead during the performance, Hudson winds up with a shocking list of suspects – including his girlfriend.
Unable to keep his professional and personal lives separate, Hudson finds himself embroiled in the peculiar hatreds and spiteful grudges that dominate the Metro’s managing committee. Desperate to ensure his girlfriend’s innocence, Hudson must work quickly to bring the murderer to light before it’s too late.
This melodic murder mystery, brimming with charm and wit, was first published in 1959 and was Margaret Newman’s first novel.
Murder to Music is part of Agora Books’ Uncrowned Queens of Crime series.
