In Part One, Harry Field, an artist, raconteur, and drinker who was not averse to producing the odd forged painting or impressive coat of arms for gullible Americans, is found dead and Inspector Morse is drawn into an unfamiliar, Bohemian world. To make matters worse, Lewis wants to move up the ladder and plans to take the police inspector's exam. In Part Two, Morse suspects that Paul Eirl, a wealthy European who lives near the site of Harry Field's murder, is somehow connected to the crime. Morse discusses Lewis's promotion with Superintendent Strange. After a long search, Lewis finds the girl who posed for some of Harry Field's paintings. Jane Marriot tells Morse she met Harry Field through Tony Doyle, who claims not to know her.
