In the grand manner of Interview with the Vampire, Anne Rice's new novel moves across time and the continents, from nineteenth-century Vienna to a St. Charles Greek Revival mansion in present-day New Orleans to dazzling capitals of the modern-day world, telling a story of two charismatic figures bound to each other by a passionate commitment to music as a means of rapture, seduction, and liberation.
ANNE RICE is the author of twenty-one books. She lives in New Orleans with her husband, the poet and painter Stan Rice.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So good A great novel that swallows you up, not fast paced, but that's of little importance. It's Anne Rice in her classic style and if you know anything about her you'll be able to see many autobiographical hints shining in this book. A must read, even though there is no Lestat in this one.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Interesting Read This was my first Anne Rice novel, so I can't say how it compares to any of her other works, but it was somewhat of an intriguing story. My first impression is that the book is written in the style of a macabre harlequin romance, that moves rather slowly until the big event at mid-point of the book (don't want to ruin it for anyone). I would definitely look into other Rice novels, and would rate this one 3.5 out of 5 stars.

Editorial Reviews

"Sit back and enjoy. . . . The story flows like blood--the life-giving, life-celebrating kind."--San Francisco Chronicle"A PASSIONATE MIXTURE OF EARTHLY FEARS AND SUPERNATURAL TERRORS."--The Baltimore Sun"[AN] ABSORBING NOVEL THAT TAKES THE READER ON A SUSPENSEFUL JOURNEY THROUGH TIME, PLACE, AND MIND . . . The instrument of the title belongs to a ghost, the brooding 19th-century aristocrat Stefan, who ventures to 20th-century New Orleans to brew up mischief and seek release from his torment. Told from the point of view of Triana, the humane woman drawn into Stefan's nefarious plot, the tale charts two lives touched by tragedy and alienation. . . . A rich, detailed literary symphony."--The Cleveland Plain Dealer"THE TALE OF A DEVILISHLY HAUNTING STRADIVARIUS . . .
