Rhapsody In Red~ by Donn Taylor

If you love mysteries (like Me!) you have to get this book.

Preston Barclay, a widower, can be nicely described as a man who keeps to himself. He enjoys his job teaching history at the University he is employed in and mostly just tries to cope with life without his wife and the ongoing music that is playing in his head. One day when a fellow professor Mara Thorn shows up at his door looking for help he finds himself a suspect in a murder of another colleague, and when the police seem determined to point their fingers at Preston and Mara they join forces to prove their innocence by finding the real murderer.

I enjoyed this book a lot. It was funny and touching, and I loved Preston's "musical hallucinations". This is definitely a must read on the mystery list so check it out.
