In TELL ME WHY, readers enter the world of pianist
Carolee Burns. At its peak, Carolee's celebrated career
took her all over the world. Then, eighteen months ago, she
dropped out of sight, emerging only occasionally to perform
at Bistro Brandy, a tiny club in suburban Seattle. It is
here that Max Wolfe watches in the darkness, a silent
observer nursing a drink as Carolee's poignant music washes
over him. Drawn to her sadness, compelled to know the
reason for her sudden withdrawal, Max searches for answers
to his questions.
Carolee won't talk about the ruin of her life--the sudden
crashing end to her once-happy marriage, the agonizing
estrangement from her daughter, and her ex-husband's
vindictive behavior. It's enough that by reinventing her
life, she has found some measure of peace.
However, that peace is about to be shattered. No sooner
does Max dare to reach out to the woman he has watched from
the shadows, than a tragedy reveals secrets that can't be
ignored-- and that will change their lives forever.
