The streets of Charleston, South Carolina are alive with music, dancing and art as the Spoleto festival gets underway. Theodosia, the Indigo Tea Shop owner, feels far from being festive when the inaugural Poet's Tea is caught in an unexpected downpour. The tea members are forced into one of the Heritage's Society's austere halls to continue. This is where affluent society mingles with high artists!
A huge "thud" is overheard during the soiree and the guests are horrified to discover a respected auction house owner has plummeted to his death from the high balcony. Although there were no witnesses, there exists a wealth of suspects that perhaps gave him a "push!"
