Inhaltsangabe: Most concert violinists wouldn't pack explosives in the case along with their Stradivarius, but Leslie Frost is no ordinary musician. When she's not performing the Kreutzer sonata, she's spying on neo-fascists and ex-communists in the emerging new East Germany. Frost, aka Smith (code names for the all-female band of American super-spies come from the Ivy League's Seven Sisters schools) witnesses a murder outside an East German church and is drawn into a mission that centers on a powerful computer and a ring of communist spies. With an array of high-tech gadgets in her purse, and a Harley motorcycle in her garage, Frost/Smith is as savvy and cool as Bond at his best. Between concerts and recording sessions, her time is filled with midnight meetings of both the romantic and the dangerous varieties, with high-speed chases and nick-of-time escapes.
Über den Autor:
Janice Weber grew up in Ridgewood, New Jersey and graduated summa cum laude from the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, New York.
At the time of her Carnegie Recital Hall debut at age nine, she was writing her first short stories. She has continued both pursuits, with her novels providing counterpoint to the staid world of a concert pianist, or perhaps with her recitals offsetting the staid world of a writer. She lives in Boston with her husband.
An active soloist and chamber musician, she has performed at the White House, Carnegie Hall (the big one), Symphony Hall Boston, Wigmore Hall London, and major venues in the U.S., Europe, and Asia. Her eclectic recordings include the complete Rachmaninoff transcriptions, Messiaen's "Quartet for the End of Time", a disc of Leo Ornstein's revolutionary piano works, and Liszt's 1838 version of the Transcendental Etudes. Her most recent disc, "Cascade of Roses", has a "rose" in each track, with rare appearances of Billy Mayerl's dazzling "Evening Primrose" and Ernest de Regge's "Variations on "The Last Rose of Summer."
Her novels happen between (and occasionally during) concerts. Music on some level infiltrates almost every book: Eva Hathaway writes hymns between amorous bouts, Floyd Beck met the love of his life at Carnegie Hall, Leslie Frost is a concert violinist, and Ross Major listens to Beethoven when the going gets rough. Characters without music fill the void with swinging, murder, and treason, activities musicians tend to eschew since that would detract from practice time.
