About this title

Synopsis:

Axel Crochet, peripatetic professor of music history, nurtures a youthful enthusiasm that he passes on to his students. His passion for music is obvious, and his disdain for university politics is evident as his work leads him from college to college.
 Die, For I Am A-Dying.  Abby Fox, a music major at an exclusive women's college where Axel temporarily teaches, commits suicide after her father dies.  But after Axel's other students persuade him that Abby would never have taken her own life, Axel begins an investigation that soon implies she may have been murdered.

Prime Suspect.  As a visiting scholar at Magnolia University, Axel is unexpectedly embroiled in another case when one of his classmates dies in an accident and he takes possession of her computer--a decision that leads him into a struggle with a computer genius in a story involving Proust and prime numbers.

Tarry Awhile.  As a visiting professor at Frangipani University, Axel discovers that his life mirrors that of Faust when the death of a stage director draws him into a maelstrom of jealousy and violence in the world's largest school of music.

In this intriguing collection of novellas, Axel Crochet's love of musicology leads him straight into unintended interludes with killers, danger, and intrigue as he attempts to solve a trio of murder investigations.

About the Author:

During his twenty-year career as a musicologist, Arthur Wenk published books on Claude Debussy (Claude Debussy and the Poets; Claude Debussy and Twentieth-Century Music) and music bibliography (the prize-winning Analyses of Nineteenth- and Twentieth-Century Music and Musical Resources for the Revised Common Lectionary).
Later he drew on his experiences as a university professor, church organist, choral conductor and pianist to produce a series of mystery novellas featuring musicologist Axel Crochet as sleuth: (The Quarter Note Tales; New Quarter Note Tales: Axel in Quebec; Axel Crochet: Musicologist-at-Large; and Quarter Note Tales #4: An Axel Crochet Trilogy).   Other books include A Guide to the Bookstores of Toronto, La Musique et les grandes epoques de l'art, and Camerata: A Guide to Organizing and Directing Small Choruses.
Dr. Wenk's subsequent careers as calculus teacher and psychotherapist have led to public lectures on graphing calculators, Geometer's Sketchpad, parenting and communication, separation and divorce, opera, western culture, and film. Since his retirement in 2014 Arthur Wenk lives in North Fort Myers, Florida and Lagoon City, Ontario.
