In London to organise a series of concerts for the Spitalfields Festival, Greg Crowne has befriended a pretty Polish countess, Marcelina. So when Marcelina is found dead behind the rolling stacks in the Museum of Music Heritage, Greg is inevitably drawn into the police investigation. It emerges that Marcelina had been sent to England by an elderly relative, Estelle Wiaroz, to buy a lost musical manuscript. But with neither the manuscript nor Estelle's letter of credit to be found, it seems they have been the victims of a complex scam: the unravelling of which will take Greg to Paris and Scotland on the trail of a thriving forgery industry.
