It has happened again: Someone has been murdered. Exactly at midnight! There are nine suspects and Inspector Douglas V. Braun is now to find the culprit. Was it the oboist? Or the trumpeter? The percussionist is also very suspicious, as are the string players, who sneak through the events with innocent expressions. All this is not so tragic, because it is a musical crime comedy. To be found in the new releases of the publishing house Intermezzo from Berlin.

After studying at Cambridge University, “Commissioner” Douglas V. Braun worked as a composer, pianist and lecturer in Coventry.
