As hooded penitents march their floats through the cobbled streets, a man runs for his life, determined to keep an age-old secret. But time has just run out . . . When former art thief Tom Kirk hears of the tortuous crucifixion of a long-time friend, he immediately abandons his inquiry into the theft of a priceless da Vinci and turns his attention to the murder. Over in New York, Special Agent Jennifer Browne's forgery case is threatening to explode into a scandal that strikes at the heart of the global auction business. With the body count rising and a tabloid hack trailing her every move, she follows a lead to Paris where she comes face to face with Tom. Realizing that both cases are connected, Tom and Jennifer are swept into a conspiracy that dates back to Napoleon - and survives in a series of coded messages concealed by the Emperor himself. Messages that lead to a shattering secret. A secret that brings death in its wake.
