A great mystery that is actually two separate and very different stories, united by one connection, a painting called "The Reaper".
The first takes place at the Paris Exposition of 1937, where this painting is on display. There are a number of unsavory characters involved, all with their own agenda to somehow get their hands on "The Reaper". This leads to multiple complicated schemes in which all of them try to hoodwink the others in what becomes an almost farce-like type of comedy. What exactly does happen to the painting is the mystery.
Jump ahead seventy years for the second story, and a young artist is faced with a dilemma. He has been offered a great deal of money to paint a copy of "The Reaper". Not knowing anything about the painting or the person making the request, but needing the money, he turns to his art world friends to investigate both. What he learns put him in great danger and causes some unexpected tragic events, but also eventually leads to the exposure of the mysterious fate of "The Reaper" and an intriguing hint about Rob Jung's next book.
