At the heart of the novel is a ‘what if’ someone does something – the ‘doing’ – for noble reasons but the ‘deed’ that results causes unfortunate consequences that echo through generations? ‘

Apolline is a headstrong French Lawyer, and her mild-mannered Australian husband, Parry, an investigator for an art auction house in Geneva. Against a backdrop of intrigue, flawed allegiance, greed and warped ambition, they work together to unravel the provenance of important paintings by two 20th-century Australian artists.
