A woman and her young son flee to a convent on a remote island off the Breton coast of France. Generations of seafarers have named the place Ile de la Brume, or Fog Island. In a chapel high on a cliff, a tragic death occurs and a terrified child vanishes into the mist.
The child's godmother, Maggie O'Shea, haunted by the violent deaths of her husband and best friend, has withdrawn from her life as a classical pianist. But then a recording of unforgettable music and a grainy photograph surface, connecting her missing godson to a long-lost first love.
The photograph will draw Maggie inexorably into a collision course with criminal forces, decades-long secrets, stolen art and musical artifacts, and deadly terrorists. Her search will take her to the Festival de Musique, Aix-en-Provence, France, where she discovers answers to her husband's death, an unexpected love - and a musical masterpiece lost for decades.
A compelling blend of suspense, mystery, political intrigue, and romance, The Lost Concerto explores universal themes of loss, vengeance, courage, and love.

The reader and the descriptive passages - for example 'he regarded her with his two blue eyes' - most people have two eyes, no need to remark on it.
That I could only bear to listen to half an hour of it - such a waste of money.
Her slow, drawling reading and her appalling attempt at a man's Irish accent
ANGER that I wasted my time on it
I shall never choose another book by this author and shall also take care to avoid this narrator.
