Instead, a nightmare of a haunting rhapsody and hundreds of roses from a psychotic stalker propel her into a world of terror. Forces drive her to revisit the mystery of her mother's death, her father's startling disappearance, and a terrible secret from World War II. Maggie finds herself on a collision course with a brutal, disfigured killer who threatens those she holds dear—an aging pianist with a long-buried secret, a grieving cellist, a charismatic Maestro, and the crusty retired colonel she has come to love.
Chord by chord, Rachmaninoff's Rhapsody becomes the heart of this story of profound loss, courage and love. Music tells our stories Book Club Questions. Note—author royalties will be donated to The Helaine and Ronald Mario Fund to support women, children and families.

Praise for Dark Rhapsody
Family Bingo. The government is caught in a geo-political bind between its biggest trading partner and its closest military ally, desperate not to be forced into an impossible choice. Against this backdrop, a minority Labor government — led by the well-intentioned but hapless Prime Minister Martin Toohey — clings to power as it heads into an election year. Toohey leads a government wrestling with its internal demons, seemingly intent on self-destruction and stalked by a challenger who refuses to die: bed-ridden Foreign Minister Catriona Bailey.
During his chase for the killer of his best friend, Dunkley stumbles into the sights of three countries and those who really wield power in Canberra, the mandarins. The story spans the globe but it is played out on the streets of the national capital, which itself is a central character in the novel. We wanted to present Canberra as it really is, a city of drama, intrigue and subterfuge, inhabited by spies, conniving politicians, scheming public servants and sceptical, sometimes cynical journalists.
But we wanted it to be as close-to-the-bone as the law would allow, taking you inside a political world where most reporters fear to tread.
