Frost the Fiddler (1992) by Janice Weber
Violinist by day, spy by night; first book in the series.
“Most concert violinists wouldn’t pack explosives in the case along with their Stradivarius. But the narrator of this high-spirited and engaging spy novel is no ordinary musician.” – Publishers Weekly
“[M]y favorite passages are what might be called the “explicit music,” the passages where Weber writes about classical music and what it’s like to play it.” – blogger Tom
