Rowland Sinclair arrives from Sydney, Australia, to represent his brother at international wool negotiations. A novice to global commerce, Rowland is under strict instructions to keep a low profile... but that soon becomes next to impossible.
A beautiful Russian taxi girl—who once claimed to be the Princess Anastasia and who danced in Rowland's arms the night before—is found slain in his suite. It's no surprise that suspicion falls on him. Rowland must seek answers in a foreign city determined to ruin him, and where he has very few people on his side—except his bohemian housemates, who always have his back.
