Pete Barnes a successful art thief with a knack for forging masterpieces gives up the life of crime to paint his own masterpieces. Settling in Switzerland, Pete falls in love with the beautiful Carly Sims, who eerily reminds him of his first love Jenny who died unexpectedly of meningitis.
Pete is thrust back into the world of crime when Carly is kidnapped. To get Carly back, Pete must steal the Remsky Portrait, a hi-tech work of art, from the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia. The planned exchange of Carly for the portrait goes awry when the Russian Mafia interferes, and Pete and Carly find themselves on the run from the kidnappers and the Russians.
The stakes elevate considerably when an unknown entity marks Pete and Carly for assassination. Surviving several close encounters while chased across two continents, Pete discovers that Carly is not who he thought she was, that love is not easy and that the Remsky Portrait is anything but a work of art.
