Abstract:

"A young singer is found dead in a forest clearing during a snowstorm, her corpse gruesomely staged. Atop her body is an antique music box, playing a chilling lullaby. Chief Inspector Odd Singsaker is assigned the case, but the snow has all but wiped out any clues that the crime scene might hold. Then another young girl suddenly goes missing and Singsaker fears the worst. In the course of the investigations, Singsaker uncovers a connection between both cases -- a centuries-old ballad, which promises the listener the deepest, sweetest sleep. With his own personal life in turmoil, Singsaker must somehow find the connection between the victims, the killer, and the melody. Somewhere, buried in the history of the ballad and its composer, is the detail that might help Singsaker find both the latest missing girl and the elusive killer who will stop at nothing to get his hands on this perfect lullaby."--Back cover.
