Now a strange letter beckons her to Vienna, promising to unlock the mysteries of her past. With each step, she comes closer to remembering connections between a clandestine reincarnationist society, Beethoven’s lost flute and journalist David Yalom. David knows loss firsthand — terrorism took his entire family. Now, beneath a concert hall in Vienna, he plots a violent wake-up call to illustrate the world’s need for true security. Join international bestselling author M. J. Rose in her unforgettable novel about a woman paralyzed by the past, a man robbed of his future and a secret centuries old.

Quotes & Awards

  • “First-rate…The Da Vinci Codeof reincarnationist fiction…Her polished prose and intricate plot will grip even the most skeptical reader.”

    Washington Post

  • “A fast-paced tale of suspense…Few authors would have the moxie to attempt such a daring story, but Rose pulls it off.”

    Chicago Sun-Times

  • “[This] elegant and splendidly structured sequel to her ground-breaking the Reincarnationist breaks new ground of its own. Rose’s stylistic mastery is exceeded only by her exhaustive research, the two combining to create a starkly original and brilliantly conceived tale.”

    Providence Journal

  • “Rose tells [the story] elegantly, moving gracefully between characters, between time and place, and building both momentum and suspense.”

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maria Collier | 2/15/2014

    " Really good book! Now, I'm quite curious and want to read the first one =) Plus, I want to go to Vienna!!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Colleen | 2/10/2014

    " Well. This certainly went better than The Reincarnationist, but there is still something lacking in the author's ability to weave the story (with the multiple characters and twined plots and flashbacks) into an engrossing and coherent tale. Too often I got lost in what was happening - I forgot whose flashback belonged to whom, and missed steps in the 'mystery', as it was. I will say that I enjoyed the drama of this book more than the first. I especially enjoyed the touches of many people experiencing 'past life regressive episodes', not just the key characters from the text. I'm excited for the third of the series, as I've heard it to be the best, but I wish there was a more developed description of the science, a better insight into these characters, and some way for the author to push these novels out of the 'good try' category and into the 'great read' category. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Macjest | 1/22/2014

    " This was an interesting book, but definitely a whole lot of characters to keep track of. I tried describing it to a friend of mine and left her confused. The plot revolves around a character who keeps remembering a piece of music that bothers her. Especially since she can't really remember how the tune goes. Her father is convinced that the she is experiencing memories of a previous life. Other reviews I've read also state that the book is convoluted. Between characters who are alive and characters who are dead (Beethoven is one of them), and memories of those dead characters, you almost need a score card to keep track of everybody. That said, I did want to keep reading to see how things were going to turn out. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rosie Crawford | 1/22/2014

    " A different and interesting read. Skillfully woven between several lifetimes and exploring reincarnation in a mystery setting. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 loretta | 1/21/2014

    " I tried very hard to read this book but couldn't make it. It follows so many books of this type which keep taking the reader from one cliff hanger to another and in the end, nothing is revealed or solved. Sort of like Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code. I know, I know it's heretical for me to make such a statement but that's the way it goes. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marg | 1/19/2014

    " 2nd book in the series, but I did read it out of order, which I don't normally do. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelsey | 1/18/2014

    " Good middle. Didn't love the end... Reincarnation a major theme, which I don't believe in (resurrection, immortality, and eternal life-yes. Reincarnation-no). Still a pretty good suspense/thriller. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dawn | 1/10/2014

    " Have yet to read a book by M.J. Rose I didn't love!! cant wait for the next one!! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sher Fick | 1/5/2014

    " nothing like the REINCARNATIONIST . . I am bored silly and just quit reading it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christe | 12/29/2013

    " This is the best one in the series yet! If you like Dan Brown, Steve Berry, etc. you will definitely enjoy this read! I could hardly put it down. Try it you'll like it. ;) Now on to the next one in this series! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vicki | 12/26/2013

    " I really enjoyed this, it was well written, and the premise is extremely engaging and works. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lori Johnstone | 11/29/2013

    " At times, this book made me sleepy, but I'm glad I read it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kylie | 11/6/2013

    " Great book with an interesting story. Jumps around from character to character a lot, but not too hard to get into. I just found in on the "new fiction" shelf at the library and it ended up being a great read! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Meredith | 7/27/2013

    " Oh dear, and here's another one I had to quit on. I bought the Kindle version, which I tend to read late at night in bed, and way too much back-and-forthing was required for me to grock all the players, places, and times. I couldn't just settle in and take up the storyline. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Daniele | 4/5/2013

    " Reincarnation pop fiction with Beethoven, an ancient flute, and historical Vienna. What's not to like? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ellen Keim | 8/7/2012

    " This is a story about the search for a magic flute and a melody that brings past life memories to the fore. It was slow reading at first, but I'm glad I finished it. I haven't read the author's first novel, The Reincarnationist, but it's possible that this book is a sequel. Correct me if I'm wrong. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Caitlyn | 7/21/2012

    " A nice follow-up to The Reincarnationist, however, it's not necessary to read the first book to enjoy this one. Though connected, each is its own story. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jennifer | 7/10/2012

    " Like the first one in this series, this is a decent beach read. Good plot, but lacking in plausibility. The writing style is adequate but not memorable. I'm sure someonen has optioned this series for a movie already; the books sometimes seem to be written with an eye to movie scenes. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christy | 6/28/2012

    " Excellent... I can't wait to read more from this fantastic author. She combines the power of music with the thrill of the hunt for lost memories. Satisfied the music lover and the historian in me. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Deborah | 6/13/2012

    " The book is interesting from a incarnate perspective, but the ending was less than exciting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jody | 2/17/2012

    " This was a fast and entertaining read as long as you just go with it and don't think too logically about anything. Similar to Dan Brown's books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 12/15/2011

    " It took me about 100 pages to really get into it, but I think overall it was a better story than the first book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Julie | 10/9/2011

    " The blurbs assure me that it's more than a simple Da Vinci Code knockoff.... we'll see.... Now that I"ve finished - pretty much in the vein of the Da Vinci Code. Entertaining enough but it didn't really rock my world. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michelle | 9/28/2011

    " could see this whole series made into movies to equal DaVinci code "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Deana Pittman | 9/26/2011

    " I really like this series! I can't wait to read the 3rd one! "

    " 2nd book in the series, but I did read it out of order, which I don't normally do.

    "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vivian | 12/1/2010

    " An OK read simply not as good IMHO as THE REINCARTIONIST. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christina | 11/11/2010

    " Very intriguing story line that takes you through different characters, spanning different time periods. The story line continues to build until the book beautifully comes together at the end. Highly recommend it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heidi | 9/18/2010

    " I enjoyed this almost as much as the first. It has been compated a lot to The DaVinci Code but in some ways I think it was as good, if not better. I really liked the FBI agent character and look forward to his storyline in the third book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nicole | 8/17/2010

    " I love sharing books with LC! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan | 6/13/2010

    " If you have an interest in past lives and reincarnation, you'll enjoy this. Fast light reading. And a mystery, too

    "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nancy | 6/8/2010

    " The story reminded me of Dan Brown's type of book with secret societies and looking for lost power. The end was kind of a let down. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelly | 6/7/2010

    " Interesting book. I liked the concept and the flashback and how the book ties itself together. "
