NemesiseBook - 2017
Shy piano teacher Maggie Blackburn has selflessly devoted her life and career to her students at the Forest Park Conservatory of Music in an affluent Connecticut suburb. Then a rape shakes the school's refined grounds. The violated young student, Brendan Bauer, is a timid ex-seminarian. The perpetrator, Rolfe Christensen, is the newly appointed and celebrated composer-in-residence who has dazzled the faculty in ways Maggie could never have dreamed of. But when the conservatory's conspiracy to conceal the crime results in Christensen's murder, Bauer is suspected--and Maggie vows to find the real killer. What Maggie soon discovers is that Christensen's reputation--as genius, manipulator, and sexual predator--had preceded him, giving many people a reason to want him dead. But when the murder of another colleague casts additional doubt on Bauer's innocence, Maggie's labyrinthine hunt for a killer turns into more than an investigation. Now it's a liberating obsession with secrets--hers included--as dark and twisted as the crimes themselves.
