A cross between The Godfather and Amadeus, the novel describes gangland and musical characters caught in their Karma and in search of power and meaning. The hero, Herbie Rappaport, is a hapless violinist who stumbles on a plot to hijack his Philharmonic and must fight to survive the consequences. The story is accompanied by performances of symphonies, opera, ballet and jazz.... Sicilian pizza with black olives and anchovies, which he ate while watching through an open upstairs window the operatic scene unfold across Fifty-seventh ... One 5.6 mm round zipping along the silenced 350 mm long barrel would accomplish its appointed task. ... Things were muddled, and the secretary did like mess.
