'Tis said of love that it sometimes goes, sometimes flies; runs with one, walks gravely with another; turns a third into ice, and sets a fourth in a flame: it wounds one, another it kills: like lightning it begins and ends in the same moment: it makes that fort yield at night which it besieged but in the morning; for there is no force able to resist it.
--Miguel de Cervantes

A former client comes to David asking for help in finding a valuable painting that went missing in the wake of a sensationalized murder investigation. On the surface there is no clear connection between the two events, but the deeper David digs the clearer it becomes that the victim was not the charitable, moral man he seemed . The case has ties to international trade, local government officials, and the small mining town of Flin Flon, Manitoba. Yet most surprising is the link to a piece of David's past for which he has never been able to find closure.
