Publisher's Summary

Snipers in the hills overlook half the intersections in Sarajevo. One man, a cellist, defies this game of "Sarajevo Roulette". In memory of the city's dead, for two consecutive days, he becomes a sitting target as he plays Albinoni's "Adagio" in the street outside his building. But he is unaware that one young woman observes his performance with unflinching attention... a counter sniper, detailed to protect him from enemy marksmen.

Well written but....

this promised to be a good and gripping story but suddenly it was finished. Loose ends all over the place, it just didn't go anywhere. As a description of what Sarejevo was like in the war it was very vivid, but as a story, completely unsatisfying.

Didn't finish it

I tried and tried with this one, but couldn't get on with the way it was read. It just felt very flat to me.
