When Frank Bainbridge, art dealer, former art forger, and failed husband, is suddenly faced with the choice between financial ruin and death, circumstances force him to take desperate measures. He undertakes a heist of breathtaking daring and complexity at what is arguably the most secure art repository in Europe. He gathers together the members of his team, Tony, a security expert, Sergio, a computer hacker, and, rather reluctantly, Taf, his estranged wife, to tackle the famous Torresani art gallery in Milan, Italy. They play a dangerous game with the ruthless owners of the gallery, a game that takes courage, nerves of steel, and Frank's irrepressible optimism, but where one slip could mean sudden death. This international thriller, set in London and Milan, hits hard and fast, grips and does not let go, and builds to a stunning climax where the forces of good and evil vie for supremacy, ultimately crossing swords with the power players in the world of Italian organized crime.
