Not even the rarified realms of art are safe in the imaginations of these writers, where intrigue lurks even in the concert hall or the museum. Classical violinist Brendan Slocumb soared onto the literary scene with the bestselling The Violin Conspiracy. Now he follows that up with Symphony of Secrets, in which the descendants of a famous composer are determined to cover up his shameful secret. In Grafton Award–nominated author Marcie R. Rendon’s Sinister Graves, teenaged sleuth Cash Blackbear starts a murder investigation with just one piece of evidence: a hymn fragment written in English and Ojibwe. And Katy Hays’s twisty debut, The Cloisters, is set in the cutthroat world of curation at the Metropolitan Museum’s famous medieval collection. Leading their conversation with style and skill is Mystery Writers of America Grand Master Laurie R. King, whose most recent novel, Back to the Garden, starts with an art restoration—and the discovery of a human skull.
