Why are the finalists of the Blainthorp Music Festival's Golden Voice contest all starting to lose their voices? The organizer hires Hetty Wainthropp to determine why, but the real client is the sponsor, the owner of Hardiman Herbals. He is offering the winner not only 500 pounds, but the position as radio/TV representative of the company. Hardiman insists Hetty and Geoffrey use his home as a base; they turn up many suspects: a competing herbalist, desperate contestants, resentful rivals, and one complication from Hardiman's past. The bad publicity and the 50% loss of finalists forces Hardiman to recruit Hetty as the judge; she then brings the culprit to face Hardiman and reveal the real reason for the sabotage on his beloved Golden Voice competition.
