After talking her way into a job with Dan Mansfield, rising journalist Jules Roth is given an unusual and secret assignment. Dan needs her to locate a painting stolen by the Nazis more than 75 years earlier: Ernst Engel's Woman on Fire. World-renowned shoe designer Ellis Baum wants this portrait for personal reasons and has enlisted Dan's help to find it. Meanwhile, in Europe, Margaux de Laurent also searches for the painting. The only thing standing in her way is Jules. Yet Jules has unexpected resources, including Adam Baum, Ellis's grandson. Adam knows how ruthless Margaux is, and he'll do anything to help Jules locate the painting before Margaux gets to it.
