"Gets on your nerves, doesn't it? I mean, that playing of hers. I've never heard anything like it."
"I haven't either," Bobby said.
Bobby Owen (now 'temporary-acting-junior-under-deputy-assistant-commissioner' of the C.I.D.) and his wife Olive are house-hunting. Finding the perfect country home, every prospect pleases... until they meet their neighbours, including the odd, piano-playing Miss Bellamy, and Mr. Fielding, whose jollity is unsettling. The incessant piano music seems to jar on everyone, and Bobby Owen even wonders if the recent murder of a stranger might have been provoked by it. The true significance of the music, and what it has to do with a recent jewellery theft, is at the heart of a classic mystery set in the English countryside.
Music Tells All was first published in 1948, the twenty-fourth of the Bobby Owen mysteries, a series eventually including thirty-five novels. This edition features a new introduction by crime fiction historian Curtis Evans.

The Eight Horsemen
This is a very tough ...
It had been five years since my twin brother Gabe had moved to California when I got the call that changed my life forever.
He was my family, the only one I had, and he was gone.
I sat in the cold, dark funeral home while people moved around me. I could hear them talking, but all I could do was think. So many questions ran through my mind as I looked down at my hands in my lap. How could I have let him go? How could I have lost five years with him? Why hadn't I gone?
There were two reasons. One was to take care of my grandparents. They'd both passed in the five years he'd been gone. The other was the one person I couldn't stand, my brother's best friend, Doug. He'd gone with him to help him start his company.
I'd been under my covers in the same clothes for two days when my phone rang. It was my brother's lawyer letting me know that I needed to be in California the following morning. If I didn't show up, my brother's company would stop running. It was in his will. My plane ticket ...
