A photographer on a visit to a house featured in a magazine he works for, discovers that a Cezanne painting has been stolen from there. With the editor of the magazine as the suspect thief, he is sent on pursuit of her and the Cezanne through London, the South of France and New York.
Fabulously successful Camilla Jameson Porter's society magazine DQ drips with flattering portrayals of the rich enjoying their riches. Andrew Kelly, the magazine's photographer, is away in the South of France on the latest assignment when he comes across a curious scene: A Cezanne painting being hurriedly carried out of a villa and into a shabby-looking van. His investigations begin to reveal a highly lucrative art swindle that involves a shady art dealer and a master forger. Teaming up with his girlfriend Lucy and Impressionists expert Cyrus Vince, Andre embarks on a Cezanne-chasing mission through France.
