The dreads are back. As a child, Meers Logan was haunted by memories of another time and place, always accompanied by the faint strains of elusive music. Now the hand of the past has reached out again. An envelope addressed to her and delivered to the Phoenix Foundation?an institute dedicated to the recovery of past life memories?contains a childhood drawing of an elaborate box that Meers recognizes?and a sheet from an auction catalog identifying the object?which she spent years imagining? as an eighteenth-century gaming box.

Determined to unlock the mystery of who she once was, she travels to Vienna to find the box. With each step, she comes closer to remembering the connections between a clandestine reincarnationist society, the lost Memory Flute linked to Ludwig van Beethoven and rumored to open the door to the past, and to David Yalom, a journalist who knows all too well how the past affects the future.

An immaginative, gripping & fast paced read. It's a mystery that encompasses art, police chases, archeology, history, past lives & Beethoven. At it's centre is reincarnation. There are believers & non-believers, all of whom would do just about anything to get their hands on a flute that may have been hidden (or destroyed?) by Beethoven. Set mostly in Vienna, there are plenty of good guys & bad guys to hold your attention & not always clear which is which.
