Goren and Eames investigate the death of a museum curator and an art authenticator who are found dead in what was set up to look like a murder-suicide.
When an art appraiser is found hanged in an apartment, Goren and Eames uncover a conspiracy to create imitations of paintings from famous painters, such as Claude Monet, and sell them to small museums. Upon finding the artist who created them, they discover her connection to a German who runs an art gallery.

- Robert Goren: Lucian Freud. As a matter of fact, I do.
- Alexandra Eames: You can't put that stuff in your home. You can't live with it.
