The second novel in the series is entitled Double Fugue and continues to chronicle the adventures of Jason and Daniel that summer. The first novel in the series, The Kidnapping, focused on Jason a lot while the second novel has more to do with Daniel and his musical interests. The title Double Fugue carries with it several meanings and implications that are part of the story concept. A fugue is a musical composition of imitative counterpoint in which a short melodic subject is introduced by one voice and successively restated and developed by other voices. It also is a term in psychology referring to the loss of one’s identity, often coupled with flight from one’s usual environment. A double fugue is a fugue on two subjects in simultaneous contrapuntal combination. The title refers to the two intertwining stories of the book, and the psychological impact that its events have on the two characters (besides Jason and Daniel) that this novel is about.

The main story line involves Daniel and his chance meeting with rock star Ethan Savage who is retiring from the music business and planning to give away most of his huge fortune from recording and publishing rights. When Daniel accidentally witnesses Ethan's mysterious disappearance just after meeting the rock star, he become involved in a very strange and troubling set of circumstances that end up having a major impact on his life. Daniel also discovers that there are many facets to music as he explores its pop side and learns about the concert/classical side through his interactions with Ethan Savage, Jason's friend Robert Fischer, and local educator and conductor David Molinari.

The other story line in Double Fugue begins when Marilyn and Jorge Ferreira, Jason's neighbors from down the block, knock on his door one evening and tell him how worried they are about their young nephew, 14-year-old Eric Acosta, who lives in Springdale, a small Monterey County town 70 miles south of the Silicon Valley. Eric apparently has been attacked and victimized, but refuses to talk about it with anyone, and seems to be withdrawing from communication with any adult, including his very concerned mother. Marilyn thinks that maybe Jason could get through to him, and asks him if he would be willing to try. Based on his own experiences as a crime victim and what he is told by the Ferreiras, Jason immediately senses that Eric has been victimized by a serious predator. Jason and Daniel, along with their adult friend and advisor, Mr. Joe Connor, quickly set out to visit Eric and try to get him to reveal what happened. What they discover and become involved in is quite disturbing and gut wrenching!
