Prague, 1850.

Fifteen-year-old Pavel yearns for solitude so he can master the violin left to him by his great-grandmother. But when Pavel's father drowns in suspicious circumstances, Pavel must take over the family's glass-making workshop, and face his fears of the storage cellar deep beneath the city's streets.

As financial ruin creeps closer for Pavel's family, he forms an uneasy alliance with an enigmatic merchant whose riches attract suspicion from the townsfolk. Meanwhile, the apothecary's widow claims to know a family secret, hidden somewhere in the library of Prague's 9th Century Castle.

Before long, Pavel finds himself drawn into a web of blackmail and deceit. Too late, he realises that his life may depend on whom he decides to trust.
