Description

Amazon Best Books of the Month, February 2012: I'll admit that when I first read the title of Jan-Philipp Sendker's
novel, The Art of Hearing Heartbeats, I winced (just a little). Something about it gave off a whiff of well-aged
Stilton, but this love story is no stinky cheese. In it, a respected New York City attorney vanishes, supposedly en
route to a business trip, leaving an embittered wife and dumbfounded daughter behind. No, I'm not getting my genres
mixed-up. While there's a mystery--one the daughter, Julia, travels to Burma to unravel--what she uncovers there is
anything but sinister. Julia is a cynical sleuth, and your suspension of disbelief will be tested, too, but as this
sweeping romance unfolds, you'll gladly fall for it. --Erin Kodicek
