Why was an Olympic gymnast paid a million dollars an assignment when she didn't have a bank account?
 
Why was an honors graduate working as a temporary secretary after inheriting a fortune?
 
Why was an English Countess ready to kill the banker, the lawyer and the gymnast even if it meant spending the rest of her life in jail?
 
Why was a Japanese steel magnate happy to hand over $50,000,000 to a woman he had only met once? 
 
Why was a senior FBI agent trying to work out the connection between these eight apparently innocent individuals?

And only then will readers discover that Van Gogh's Self-portrait with Bandaged Ear has a secret of its own that acts as the final twist in this unforgettable yarn.
