Musician Charles Patterson investigates the death of a shop-boy in eighteenth century Newcastle, and attempts to solve the mystery before an unpopular organ builder's life is in danger.

Blackwell North Amer
Winter is not a good time for jobbing musicians in early 18th century Newcastle. The town has emptied for the season, and Charles Patterson, harpsichordist, concert arranger and tutor to the gentry, is down to his last few shillings.
But Patterson has another talent: solving mysteries. When an unpopular organ builder thinks his life is in danger and a shop-boy dies in dubious circumstances, the offer of a substantial fee persuades him to seek answers to some difficult questions.
Like, who stole the dancing-master's clothes? Why is a valuable organ up for raffle?
And will Patterson escape whoever is trying to kill him?
