Summary
  • At the Church of the Commonwealth in Boston's Back Bay, great anticipation is afoot. A new pipe organ is being installed, after a strangely suspicious fire destroyed the old one, and left the church sexton burned to a crisp. As Alan Starr, master organist, begins the complex job of voicing the great organ, he notices that the church seems to have gained a new congregant - a baby boy who has crawled up the church steps, completely unchaperoned. At fourteen months, Charley
  • Hall is on his own - his father is dead and his mother has unaccountably vanished. And so, despite the fierce amount of work facing him on the new organ, Alan Starr sets out to find the child's mother. Fortunately, the new organ is equipped with a unique stop knob marked "DIV INSP" - for "Divine Inspiration." It's a musical joke, but it's just what Alan will need when he teams up with Homer Kelly to investigate Rosalind Hall's mysterious disappearance - only to discover
  • that competition for the job of chief organist is reaching deadly proportions. Divine Inspiration is a mystery of other-worldly charm - set amid ecclesiastical mayhem and musical mischief - by the queen of the New England mystery. Accented with Bach's glorious musical puzzles, church politics, pipe organs, and Langton's inimitable line drawings detailing the nooks and crannies of Boston, Divine Inspiration is vintage Langton - with all the stops pulled out
