When acting concertmaster, Scheherazade O’Brien, is summarily dismissed by the despotic, tyrannical conductor Vaclav Herza, O’Brien slits her wrists. Now, blind, cantankerous violin teacher Daniel Jacobus, who had shunned O’Brien’s earlier plea for help against Herza’s relentless harassment, investigates Herza’s dark past not only in Prague, but in Tokyo and New York.
