Symphony of secrets

Abstract: A riveting page-turner about a determined professor who uncovers a shocking secret about the most famous American composer of all time—that his music was stolen from someone else, a young Black woman. Bern Hendricks has just received the call of a lifetime. One of the world’s preeminent experts on the famed twentieth-century composer Frederick Delaney, Bern knows everything there is to know about the man behind the music. So, when Mallory, a board member from the Delaney Foundation, asks for Bern’s help authenticating a newly discovered piece, which may actually be his famous lost opera, RED, he jumps at the chance. With the help of his tech-savvy acquaintance Eboni, Bern soon discovers that the truth is far more complicated than history would have them believe. In 1920s Manhattan, a young Black woman, Josephine Reed, is living on the streets and frequenting jazz clubs when she meets the struggling musician Fred Delaney. But where young Delaney struggles, Josephine soars. She’s a natural prodigy who hears beautiful music in the sounds of the world around her. With Josephine as his silent partner, Delaney’s career takes off—but who is the real genius here? In the present day, Bern and Eboni begin to uncover information that indicates Delaney may not have composed his own most successful work. Armed with more questions than answers, and in the crosshairs of a powerful organization who will stop at nothing to keep their secret hidden, Bern is determined to uncover the truth and right history’s wrongs—finally giving the forgotten Josephine the recognition she deserves.
