A brooding classical pianist-turned-conductor cannot remember the night his nemesis was murdered. Did he commit the crime—or did the beautiful soprano with whom he is falling in love? In the fall of 1941, as war approaches, Death Is the Cool Night goes behind the scenes of a music conservatory and into the heart of some of the most beautiful compositions ever written for voice.
