In this taut suspense thriller of dark secrets and even darker ambitions set within New York’s glittering world of classical music, Emma Raveling offers a taste of what’s to come in her forthcoming novel, A Woven Silence.

Leila Cates is close to achieving her dreams. With the support of the most powerful music agency in the world, the acknowledgment of influential artists, and the backing of the country’s wealthiest patrons, her career as an acclaimed concert pianist is on the fast track to international success.

Her path to certain stardom comes to a crashing halt when the body of her boyfriend, a world renowned conductor, is discovered on the eve of her New York debut. Witness reports of infidelity, temperamental artistic clashes, and the couple’s public fight the day before his death quickly label Leila as the primary suspect in his murder.

Desperate to clear her name, she sets out to uncover the truth with the reluctant help of Orion Frazier, the detective assigned to the case. But as their investigation deepens, the shadows of her past rise up to challenge her and her musical career.

With everything on the line, Leila must venture into a darkness she has long avoided and discover if she has the strength to face what she finds.
