A fallen British spy has been murdered in Lake Como, and Gabriel must cease his work repairing an altarpiece by Veronese and agree to hunt down the killers—and the world’s most iconic missing masterpiece: Caravaggio’s Nativity with St. Francis and St. Lawrence. The investigation will lead him and his remarkable team of operatives to a brave woman who survived one of the worst massacres of the twentieth century and give her a chance to strike a blow against the dynasty that destroyed her family.
From the shimmering boulevards of Paris and London, to the gritty criminal underworlds of Marseilles and Corsica, 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, Gabriel’s search will take him on one of the most intricate and perilous missions of his long career and force him to confront a final, heart-stopping choice.
