Can violent felons be cured by music? Psychiatrist-conductor Cornwall Mellish
believes so. At a dinner party featuring a performance by an ensemble of
misfits and maniacs, he is successfully presenting the proof of his research –
until someone disproves Dr. Mellish’s theory by murdering him. You’re one
of the psychiatrists in attendance, but you won’t need your DSM-5. You’ll
be solving the mystery and identifying the killer by following the clues that
point to a complicated series of relationships...and a thirst for revenge!
