Product Description

Product Description

At the Ramillies Country House in Sussex, the Sixth Hartington Festival is taking place.

With peacocks strolling across the lawns to the sounds of classical music, Ramillies seems idyllic.

But then Eden Hartington, conductor, impresario, and founder of the Hartington Music Festival, is found dead.

No one seems to want to talk about what happened - except for Eden's daughter Anna, obsessive about her late father, who is determined to keep his memory alive.

Another death, that of Dominic Leigh, the gifted, wayward trumpet-player also threatens Anna’s beloved music festival.

Brilliant and charismatic, Dominic was the only thing that made Penny Beaumont feel alive. But with Dominic gone and her dependable marriage becoming suffocating, Penny feels the atmosphere at Ramillies is about to boil over.

When Anna announces that she is ready to sacrifice everything to keep the failing Festival going, including the career of Adam Beaumont, Penny's husband and the brilliant young conductor who has succeeded her father, there is no shortage of people who have a vested interest in stopping her.

Then she is shot and Adam is arrested for her murder.

Penny Beaumont is desperate to prove her husband's innocence.

But has her obsession with his genius blinded her to other, darker sides of his complex character?

'The Trumpet Shall Sound' is a brilliantly plotted mystery story that will keep readers gripped from the first page to the last.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a great find! 27 Feb 2006
By L. J. Roberts TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
I have only recently found Ms. Templeton and am I glad I did. This book is a combination traditional mystery/police procedural with interesting characters, particularly Diane Braithwaite. Her characters are all very real and human. The plot is tight and keeps you guessing. There are lots of suspects, some good tension, and excellent dialogue. The book is worth searching out and I look forward to reading more by this author.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great read 30 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As a long-term fan of Ms Templeton I have read and enjoyed all the Marjorie Fleming books but this is the first stand-alone novel of hers I have tried, and realised what I have been missing! Set against the background of a music festival (think Aldeburgh) the Ramillies Festival was very successful under the direction of its creator, a well-known and charismatic conductor, but after his death it is no longer so successful under the aggressive direction of his daughter and tensions amongst the orchestra and household are rising to dangerous levels. When the police become involved matters do not improve as the two officers leading the investigation fail to agree on how to run the case. Both a mystery and a police procedura, the book succeeds on all levels and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
