At the start of this offbeat crime thriller from Schneider (Secret Love ), concert violinist Elizabeth Odegard hires eccentric Twin Cities PI Augie Boyer, who enjoys poetry and smoking pot, to investigate her husband, Perry, a dealer in rare musical instruments. Elizabeth has become suspicious of Perry's unusual business practices, especially after discovering a gun inside a violin case. When Boyer visits the Odegards' apartment, he finds a cache of German Lugers and a slim book cataloguing valuable violins seized by the Nazis. The trail leads Boyer to a possible link with a major antiabortion rally at the 2008 Republican National Convention, where a fictional Minnesota governor is angling to become John McCain's running mate. While some readers will enjoy the name-dropping (from Garrison Keillor and Al Franken to Geraldo and Anderson Cooper), others may feel the predictable story line undercuts the suspense. (Aug.)
