After three break-ins, New York gallery owner Alex acquires a dachshund – and a mystery; why is someone after Swiss artist Denise Kübler’s artwork? When she is assaulted and threatened by the thieves, she decides to flee to Switzerland, to solve the riddle and save her life.
In Geneva she realizes that one of the murdered artist’s paintings may contain a valuable document, relating to the death of immensely wealthy Alice de Brousse. She crosses the paths of Etienne, the old lady’s charming nephew and frustrated heir. And of darkly charismatic Damien, founder and leader of the FLC, the charitable foundation which inherited her fortune.
Despite several attempts on her life, Alex doggedly continues her quest, retracing the last months of Alice de Brousse’s life. In the process, she discovers it’s not always to tell friend from foe, and finds solace in her smart dog’s unconditional love.
And when she finally discovers the truth, Alex and her newfound ally have to run for their lives through picture postcard scenery, counting, more than ever, on Dulce the dachshund’s unerring instinct to get them out of sticky situations and help them right a wrong.
