Here’s an unusual one! It’s Tess Gerritsen, author of a whole slew of books, mostly medical thrillers, and she’s now got a work of Rock Fiction that might sorta be horror and might sorta be another thriller — hey, do what you love, right?

It’s called Playing with Fire, and here’s the description:

A beautiful violinist is haunted by a very old piece of music she finds in a strange antique shop in Rome.

The first time Julia Ansdell picks up The Incendio Waltz, she knows it’s a strikingly unusual composition. But while playing the piece, Julia blacks out and awakens to find her young daughter implicated in acts of surprising violence. And when she travels to Venice to find the previous owner of the music, she uncovers a dark secret that involves dangerously powerful people—a family who would stop at nothing to keep Julia from bringing the truth to light.

Now, I gotta say, this doesn’t hold up next to the review Susan sent me. That review made it sound a lot better than this does, so much that she wants to pick up a copy and read it. She said something about Jeremy Wagner and his book, which she said was something Joss Whedon wished he wrote and maybe this might be up that same alley.

Whatever. I think the alley is dark and scary and maybe I’m not down with this, but I know Susan is and I bet some of you are and if nothing else, it sure is a break from the tried and true and familiar and all that.

So bring it. I’ll try it, but one single heebie jeebie and it’s going right back to Susan!
