The Brahms Deception

Cover: 'The Brahms Deception'

Staff Review: "The Brahms Deception" by Louise Marley


“The Brahms Deception” is a music history meets sci-fi thriller novel.

When a musicologist travels back in time to unravel a mystery that has haunted musicians for centuries, her rival must find a way to undo the damage she creates.

The book has an unexpected and interesting premise and well-developed -- if slightly stereotypical -- characters.

The average reader may want to brush up on their music theory before tackling this novel.

Audience: adults | Genre: fiction, science fiction, music
