    Summary

    In 1990, two men posing as police officers robbed the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston, making off with over $500 million in stolen art. The most valuable of the lost paintings, at nearly $200 million, was "The Concert", one of only thirty-four surviving works by the Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer. The Gardner robbery was the largest recorded private property theft in history, and though authorities suspect the work of Boston mobsters at play, and have partially traced the path through which the art was fenced, to date, none of it has been recovered or even located, and all potential suspects are believed deceased.

    (Nobody covers his tracks like Jimmy Ford.)

    When the missing painting turns up in Paris, it proves an impossible temptation for Sophie Devereaux, both to get her hands on the Vermeer that got away . . . and, maybe, if she's being very honest with herself, because she suspects a certain taciturn Oklahoma cowboy-turned-hitter might turn up there to settle his old score with the corrupt billionaire who originally bankrolled the theft.

    What? She just misses having a team. That's all.

    There can't possibly be any more to it than that.
