The Prague Sonata

Bradford Morrow

In the early days of the new millennium, pages of a worn original sonata manuscript--the gift of a Czech immigrant living out her final days in Queens--come into the hands of Meta Taverner, a young musicologist. To Meta's eye, it appears to be an authentic 18th-century work. But there is no indication of who the composer might be. Leaving New York behind for Prague, Meta sets out on an unforgettable search to uncover the story behind the sonata, even as it becomes clear that she isn't the only one after the music's secrets. An intriguing tale by the author of The Forgers (2014).
