The Death of the Hurdy Gurdy Boy
by Peter John Cooper
Tommy the street musician is murdered in a London shop doorway one bitterly cold December night in 1882. One hundred and thirty years later his troubled spirit befriends a young violinist, Tamara, and implores her to help him answer the questions "Who?" and "Why?". In doing so she confronts her own problems. Vibrant and funny but occasionally dark and always emotionally truthful.
