Brother Robert from the abbey on St Honorat, a picturesque island off the French coast, has requested Patrick de Courvoisier's help in locating a valuable painting which has disappeared from the monastery's vaults. At the same time, an old enemy from Patrick's past has arrived in Cannes in search of a different stolen painting. As it becomes increasingly clear that the two investigations are linked, Patrick's enquiries lead him to uncover a shocking wartime secret: a secret the British Royal family would prefer to keep hidden.

The setting is the real star of this story. Cannes on the French Riviera, with its old quarter, Le Suquet.

I found many of the supporting characters to be more intriguing than the main characters.

The story, with its WWII Nazi connections, is believable- at a bit of a stretch. Interesting, but not compelling.

But visualizing the beautiful Mediterranean landscape made this a plus overall.
