Abstract:

In London, an Auschwitz survivor is murdered in his hospital bed, his killers making off with a macabre trophy - his severed left arm. In Fort Mead, Maryland, a vicious gang breaks into a museum and steals a World War II Enigma machine, lynching the guard who happens to cross their path. Meanwhile, in Prague, a frenzied and mindless anti Semitic attack on a synagogue culminates in the theft of a seemingly worthless painting by a little known Czech artist called Karel Bellak. A year has passed since Tom Kirk, the world's greatest art thief, decided to put his criminal past behind him and embark on a new career on the right side of the law. Then three major thefts occur, and suddenly Tom is confronted with a deadly mystery and a sinister face from the past.
