Rome - A magnificent Caravaggio altarpiece disappears at dead of night.

Paris - In the basement vault of the Malevich Society curator Genevieve Delacloche is shocked to discover that one of its greatest treasures has vanished.

London - The National Gallery's newest acquisition is stolen just hours after it was purchased for £6.3 million.

As three separate investigations get underway, Inspector Jean-Jacques Bizot in Paris and Harry Wickenden of Scotland Yard begin to suspect that what at first appears a spate of random thefts is nothing of the kind.
