When her father is discovered dead on Christmas Eve, his valuable violin missing and a mysterious gold pendant found around his neck, fifteen-year-old Theresa is convinced murder is afoot. The key to her father's death seems to lie in his words of music, so Theresa sets to work as a copyist for acclaimed composer Franz Joseph Hayden. Determined to uncover the mystery of his untimely end, Theresa gains access to the imperial halls of Prince Nicholas Esterhazy's court and delves into her father's secret life. The trail of blackmail and extortion she discovers leads her from the splendor of the royal court to the shadowy tents of a Gypsy camp. But it is the stirrings of love for a man she only thought she knew that might prove the most astonishing discover for all.
