The day Alex is hired, Angela Higgins informs him that her chauffeur, Peter Donlevy, mysteriously disappeared on the night the painting was taken from her house. During the course of his investigation, Alex learns that Donlevys son named Vincent who is a Georgetown University dropout with mob connections has been hired to steal and deliver the painting to a wealthy Art collector who resides in the west coast, but neither Alex nor Vincent knows that a rival collector is determined to posses the coveted painting.
