This is a story about a violin that goes from one owner to the next. It tells us about each of the owners and we learn their stories. I had a little trouble getting into this book at first, but I'm glad I stayed with it. I found a book that was hard to put down, and kept me wanting to read more.

Brought up in care in Staffordshire Lindsay nevertheless succeeded in negotiating high school and,later,King`s College London where he graduated in Law.Bored by the prospect of a legal career he sidestepped respectable life for several years working as a gravedigger,crane-driver,meat porter and labourer whilst playing premier level rugby union at weekends.Marriage,mortgage and three children demanded a more regular lifestyle and income so he forged a career in industry becoming a director of a major international billion pound engineering company.Always considering himself a "writer in a suit,temporarily derailed by circumstances", work,children and another degree--a first in Psychology--kept him from writing.Eventually a downshift afforded the opportunity to write.Lindsay published a book of short stories "Harlequinade" in 2013."The Violin " is his first novel.
Lindsay currently lives in Chester.
