The art dealer Julian Isherwood has stumbled upon a murder scene in Lake Como and is being held as a suspect. To save his friend Gabriel must perform one simple task: find the most famous missing painting in the world. Sometimes the best way to find a stolen masterpiece is to steal another one . . . The dead man is a fallen spy with a secret: he’s been trafficking in stolen artworks and selling them to a mysterious collector. Among those paintings is the world’s most iconic missing masterpiece: Caravaggio’s Nativity with St. Francis and St. Lawrence. Gabriel embarks on a daring gambit to recover the Caravaggio that will take him on an exhilarating hunt—from Marseilles and Corsica to Paris and London and finally to a small private bank in Austria where a dangerous man stands guard over the ill-gotten wealth of one of the world’s most brutal dictators . . .
