Summary, etc.:
At the nursery school Isabel meets Patricia, a musician living in Edinburgh and the mother of a small classmate. Patricia takes to Isabel and tries to bring Isabel into her social circle. Isabel is vaguely disquieted by this - there is something about Patricia that she does not quite like. Isabel intervenes into Patricia's life and comes close to overstepping her own boundaries, as she uncovers a scheme of fake antiquities and illicit trafficking in cultural objects.
