When a trip to Scotland ends in tragedy, travel guide Lana Hansen must sleuth out who murdered her guest before she ends up paying the piper.
Lana hasn't seen her ex-husband Ron since their divorce was finalized six months earlier. So when they bump into each on the Royal Mile in Edinburgh, she is not exactly jumping for joy.
To make matters worse, Ron threatens a member of her tour group - a beloved and respected magician named Presto the Amazing. Ron is convinced Presto stole one of his magic tricks - the same act that propelled the famous magician into stardom - and swears he will get his revenge.
After Presto is scared to death by a group of well-meaning bagpipers, the police suspect he was first poisoned - and that Ron is the culprit!
As much as Lana would love to let her ex-husband rot in prison, she soon discovers that he was not the only one who would prefer to have Presto vanish.
Did Ron poison the magician? Or did one of several family members accompanying Presto on the trip, use this vacation to knock off the domineering patriarch?
When another guest is murdered, Lana must decide how far she is willing to go to save the man who broke her heart.
