Originally published: London: Viking, 2018.
When Brodie is offered a job in Paris, he seizes the chance to flee Edinburgh and his tyrannical clergyman father, and begin a wildly different new chapter in his life. In Paris, a fateful encounter with a famous pianist irrevocably changes his future - and sparks an obsessive love affair with a beautiful Russian soprano, Lika Blum. Moving from Paris to St Petersburg to Edinburgh and back again, Brodie's love for Lika and its dangerous consequences pursue him around Europe and beyond, during an era of overwhelming change as the nineteenth century becomes the twentieth.

Reviews
I’m a Boyd fan Sadly I never really bought into this book, the characters rather cliche’d and the plot unbelievable, and as another said, it was just dulI The love interest dominated but the obsession with Lika became rather repetitive and boring.
