This is a simple murder mystery. It's okay, but there were few surprises. And I also didn't really care too much about what happened to the characters.

Penny is the member of the Barston Symphony Orchestra.Her boyfriend Simon,too.One day her double bass is missing.And later,the manager of her orchestra dies...This book is like a drama.I was surprised when I knew that penny's boyfriend might kill the manager.The ending was sad,but in a sense the one was happy for Penny.It's a little interesting.
