When Detective Chief Inspector Sheila Whiteman was called to investigate the mysterious death of the world renowned concert pianist Simon McCann at his penthouse apartment in Birmingham she was not convinced it was a case of suicide the scene portrayed. As the investigation progressed, she became more convinced there was a connection with the death of Simon McCann and some unpublished works by the Polish composer Frederic Chopin discovered by electricians when carrying out refurbishment works at a house in Paris some two years previously. Eventually teaming up with Catherine McKenzie, the BBC Arts and Entertainments editor Sheila discovers the final piece of the jigsaw at The Holy Cross church in Warsaw. Returning to England the words inscribed on the plinth underneath the Chopin memorial at Lazienki Park kept running through her mind. They somehow seemed to provide more understanding than she’d ever been able to uncover in all her investigations put together.
