After he sold his successful grocery-store business, Dickson McCunn takes a walking holiday in the Galloway region of Scotland. At an inn he meets a poet and ex-soldier named Heritage. Together they will come upon a deserted large house called Huntingtower. Though the place is supposed to be empty, they can hear a woman singing. Intrigued, they will investigate and that will get McCunn deeply involved in a matter of international intrigue involving an escaped Russian princess and Bolshevik hunters on the hunt for her and her jewels.
