A Minor Deception

#1, Joseph Haydn Mystery

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


When his newly hired violinist disappears just weeks before the Empress's visit, Haydn is forced to confront a disturbing truth. . .

Kapellmeister Joseph Haydn would like nothing better than to show his principal violinist, Bartó Daboczi, the door. But with the Empress Maria Theresa’s visit scheduled in three weeks, Haydn can ill-afford to lose his surly virtuoso.

But when Bartó disappears—along with all the music composed for the imperial visit—the Kapellmeister is forced to don the role of Kapell-detective, or risk losing his job.

Before long Haydn's search uncovers pieces of a disturbing puzzle. Bartó, it appears, is more than just a petty thief—and more dangerous. And what seemed like a minor musical mishap could modulate into a major political catastrophe unless Haydn can find his missing virtuoso.

Papa Hayden

I still hum or even sing the Papa Hayden song from early piano lesson (set to the theme of his Surprise Symphony) & years later waking my dozing grandpa to a more sophisticated version of it. So I was tickled to find this Hayden mystery & look forward to the others.
The only reason I didn’t give it 5 stars is the confusion of keeping everyone straight. I realize the confusion was his, but maybe a bit more on the characters would have made it easier to follow.
