Dance Macabre book launch!

I got this message from violinist/author Gerald Elias…

Dear Friends,

Please come and be the first to celebrate the release of my second book, Danse Macabre! Bring your friends to an evening of reading, music, and conversation at

The Mysterious Bookshop,
58 Warren Street, New York, NY 10017
Monday, August 30, at 6:30 PM.

In Danse Macabre, the second Daniel Jacobus mystery, the rivalry between the beloved aging violin virtuoso, Rene Allard, and BTower, his one-time protege and young African American crossover sensation, boils over, resulting in a brutal murder, and Jacobus is caught in the middle of a clash between generations, races, and musical passion.

I am also very pleased to announce that St. Martin’s Press has recently invited me to write a third and fourth in the series, so you’ll be seeing a lot more of Daniel Jacobus, and I look forward to seeing you on the 30th!

Some comments about Danse Macabre:

“Elias’s debut, Devil’s Trill, was a great reading experience; his new book is outstanding. A musical feast for mystery and music lovers.” (Library Journal, starred review, July 2010)

“The refreshingly caustic Jacobus, a cast of superbly drawn supporting characters, an interesting classical music milieu accessible to aficionados and neophytes alike, an unexpected twist or two, and a unique murder method combine for an engrossing read.” (Publisher’s Weekly, June 2010)


One response to this post.

  1. Jerry, I am so please that Daniel is going to be around for the long haul.

    I posted a review of THE DEVIL’S TRILL in late June/early July on my blog Murder By Type. DANSE MACABRE is today’s post and, as with THE DEVIL’S TRILL, I will also post it on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Borders, and Goodreads.

    Best of luck with another great book.
