When, a few short paragraphs later, another completely underdeveloped character who you will care nothing about tells the hero "I don't know what to say, Harry. Your country owes you a huge debt. You saved thousands of lives", I literally thought the book was about super spy Michael Scarn. Which then made me wish I had spent the hours I invested in this failed writing project, binge watching television instead.
I won't even get into the fact that one character shoots someone in the face out of nowhere and it is never explained why nobody asked, "What just happened there? Did 'one of the most well respected lawyers in New Orleans' just drive up an shoot someone in the face? What's up with that?" Is this an SNL skit?
A note to Mr. Deaver: What happened Jeffery. Your older books are so much better. Have you tapped out and just try to see what you can get away with in stories? You've jumped the shark so many times, after reading 20 or so of your books, I've decided not to just skip Lincoln Rhyme novels (which try and twist a twist so it is twisted beyond any twist that could be a rational twist), but any further novels with your name on them.
"Can this ending really be that bad?", you ask? Why yes. Yes it can. Even if you can find any enjoyment in the other chapters, this kick to the crotch you get in the end will surely wipe it away. Trust me, don't invest the time reading this, listening to it, or even having a friend give you a vague description of it. Read this review and just walk away. If you think a book written by multiple authors is a unique and intriguing idea, try No Rest for the Dead. Not great, but much better.
The main character, Harry Middleton, is fairly well developed as is Detective Padlo and maybe Felicia Kaninsky, but the characters of Charlotte and her husband - the fabulous guy who marries Charlotte (daughter of MIddleton) works at getting her pregnant for years and then it turns out is only doing it for some nefarious reason, and I won't ruin any experience you will have by talking about how he ruins Charlotte's happy day. M.T. Connolly, an FBI agent starts with some initial development as a well intentioned and hard working agent with problems (a regular character in crime dramas), and then is summarily offed without a thought.
There isn't a rythym to this book; it is jarring and jolting along tuntil the end and then just ends, or rather maybe it ends so that these authors can pick it up where is so badly left off. I suggest they keep to writing their own stuff at their material is all better from the same source.
WARNING - Possible Spoilers Below, but I don't think I give away anything major...
As the author says but fails to understand, the cadenza is designed for the performer to improvise, not for the performer to try to do exactly what Mozart would do. Mozart would never play the same cadenza twice.
16 bars of Chopin would typically be about 400 notes, not 40
Obviously, 88 keys on a piano, 88 possibilities for each note, not just "letters a to g", or even with sharps and flats.
Frequencies (what he calls "concert pitch") shouldn't help... there will still be exactly 88 pitches; the numerals in the pitches are not separable since they'll always be grouped into just 88 patterns.
Why would a couple hundred notes yield 80,000 digits? 400 digits per note? That makes no sense! As he notes (haha!) piano frequencies are in the 2-5 digit range.
Basic problem with temeperament (which he calls "tempering") discussion: anything repeatable could be derived mathematically; there are certainly tables of pitches for different temperings. Anything that would be the fine-tuning done by a tuner would be tied to a particular instrument (on a particular day (with particular temperature and humidity (and often dependent on a particular performer's style))) - not reproducible in any other situation.
Bach's "well-temperament" doesn't make a keyboard sound perfect... it makes it sound acceptable in a wide range of situations. It was decidedly not perfect, his whole point in the Well-Tempered Klavier was that none of the perfect systems work for a range of things; he was demonstrating his compromise solution.
"Tune a MIDI keyboard"? Doesn't work that way. A MIDI keyboard sends a signal that says what key was pressed, nothing about pitch. Specialized software can play with the pitch related to each key... but "tuning" in such a way requires that you provide the frequencies for each key, or the math to derive them... you don't "tune to see what sounds right" and then just read off the numbers. A "MIDI Interface" doesn't do anything by itself... it lets you connect a MIDI keyboard to a computer. It certainly doesn't display pitches on an LCD screen... it only shuttles MIDI key numbers and such around.
