ABOUT THE BOOK
It has been fifteen years since Liesl watched her beloved Harvard music mentor assaulted on a dark night in Moscow and just as long since the CIA disclosed to her that he'd been spying for Russia. She had seen that man-that eerie face-the night Professor Devoe was attacked. And now he's back-and coming for her.
“Sue Duffy has mixed the mayhem of political intrigue with the melody of romance.” —Dick Bohrer, author, editor, and former journalism professor
“Intrigue and suspense come together in an incredible story of love and betrayal, commitment and courage, power and danger . . . and a God who controls it all. Sue Duffy is a wonderfully gifted writer and this book is a must-read.” —Steve Brown, founder and president of Key Life and host of Steve Brown Etc.

My review of The Sound of Red Returning:
I really wasn’t sure if I was going to like The Sound of Red Returning. A spy type novel is really not a favorite thing for me to read, so that may have tarnished my overall feeling about this book. I really didn’t love it, but what drew me to it was the use of music in the story. There is something about an author’s use of music in a story that I find intriguing, especially when the author’s words actually allow the reader to feel the music. Sue Duffy did a very good job with that, which heightened by enjoyment of the story.
The espionage angle of this book really did very little for me, which is no fault of the author or the book, it’s just not my kind of book. In addition to the musical aspects to this book, I also enjoyed the multiple cities that this story takes place in. It made the story much more interesting and more real. So, The Sound of Red Returning is a very good book and I highly recommend it for the fans of suspenseful spy novels. It starts a bit slowly, but it does move much quicker later in the book, so enjoy the suspense and a few surprises as well.
