Success is bitter sweet for Chief Inspector Raymond Harper as he says good-bye to his old office and welcomes new challenges as an Assistant Commissioner with the National Crime Authority (NCA). The advantage of such a position however, is the ability to pick his team which he brings with him, at least those that want to move to the new organization. But as he has become accustom to, settling in is not an option due to the fast pace of the criminal world. Even at the dizzying heights of such a national organization. Barely in his new office, Assistant Commissioner Harper is confronted by two elderly women who have been to the National Gallery and were taken aback to see their grandfather’s painting hanging in one of the display rooms. What upset them was that they had last saw it as they were herded out of the house by the Nazis during World War II and had not seen it since. But what seemed like a simple investigation into stolen World War II artwork began to unravel into an international art ring involving forgery and ancient artifacts. Through the work of Commissioner Harper and newly promoted, Detective Chief Inspector Bryant and their expanded team, they delve into intricacies of the art world and get caught up with cybercrime. Reaching out to the various units within the NCA, Harper and Bryant, coordinate with DCI Radey of the Organised Crime Unit, DCI Goodall of the Art and Antiquities Unit, Superintendent Blacknall of the Criminal Finance Team, DCI Tony Barnet of the Asset Recovery Team, and Superintendent Mark of the ECrime Team to follow elaborate leads into the crevices and crannies of the art world where amazing skills are used to profit in a variety of ways. Concurrently, organized crime incidences such as extortion leads the team to unravel the thieves’ ability to extract cash from some of the world’s largest institutions using the government’s own strategy.
