Amy, Dan, and their au pair, Nellie, found music by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart in the end of The Maze of Bones, leading them to Vienna, Austria, to learn about him and find a related clue. In Vienna, Amy and Dan discover that Mozart had an older sister: Maria Anna "Nannerl" Mozart. They go to a library to view her diary, only to realize Jonah Wizard, a fellow competitor in the search for the 39 Clues, stole it. They steal it from him, then Nellie translates it and notices that three pages are missing.
Then, Amy and Dan discover that there is another song in the middle of the song by Mozart. That song's name is "The Place Where I Was Born", so they go to the place where Mozart was born: Salzburg, Austria. There, they see Alistair Oh, and follow him. He goes into the Salzburg Catacombs, and they go in there too. There, Amy and Dan see The Man in Black, and there is an explosion, but they escape.
Later, Nellie discovers that there is a homing device on the collar of their cat, Saladin. They place it on Alistair Oh when he is sleeping. They also steal a document from him. It is talking about Venice, Italy, so they go there.
In Venice, they follow Jonah Wizard, and find a secret passage from a music store called Disco Volante to a Janus stronghold. There, they find the missing diary pages, and steal them. The pages say that Nannerl Mozart thought her brother was going crazy because he was getting into debt by buying Japanese steel. A name, Fidelio Racco, which was also found on the paper taken from Alistair Oh, appears in the diary. Because of that, Amy and Dan go into Fidelio's Racco's mansion (which is now a museum). There they see the Kabras, who attack them, but fall into a booby trap, and are knocked unconscious.
Then, in the same place, Amy and Dan find the second clue, tungsten and two Japanese swords. Because of that, Amy, Dan, and Nellie buy plane tickets to Tokyo, Japan.
The book ends with Alistair Oh finding out who is owner of the tracking device that was placed on Saladin, and himself. That person is Grace's lawyer and friend, William McIntyre.
