Murder. Betrayals. Romance. Pianist Alexei Georg harbors a dark secret. He finds an old sonata in a 19th-century Russian sea chest. The night Alexei performs this handsome music in concert, a creature of darkness appears in the audience, in the aisle, and on the stage with him. This is no ghost. This menacing presence haunts Alexei relentlessly from Boston's music society to Mt. Greylock.
