The answer is here in an international expose youll want to read several times over so as to enjoy Stan Stanton at his cleverest. He lays before you his cool approach to a challenge and illustrates his analytical resolution. The resolution he arrives at is hidden under a blanket of intrigue, sexual opportunity and humor. As private insurance investigators, hired by Lloyds Insurance of London, Stan Stanton and his loveable partner, Sandra Hawkins, are asked to determine the validity of a double indemnity claim in the little village of Donlorning Place, Scotland. Little do they realize that the case would evolve around extremists willing to commit murder for their ideals of freedom. As part of a unique plan for an exorbitant ransom, the radicals, led by Ben Maheny, steal the Mona Lisa while its en route to the Tate Britain Gallery on loan. Unfortunate for all concerned, the radicals accidentally destroyed the painting in an explosion. Stanton, as a representative of Scotland Yard, along with a high ranking staff member at Lloyds, offer theft condolences and try to soothe Monsieur Jean-Louis, curator at the Louvre Museum in Paris, France. After endless threats, barely short of an international war, the curator drops Stan into the hands of his breath-taking assistant Mimi de Margot. As her responsibility, Stan tours the museum, has a fabulous night of dinner and dancing, and closes the evening in her apartment. But the plot thickens when Stan returns to London and uncovers strange clues that tie the death in Donlorning Place to the stealing of the Mona Lisa painting. With the help of Colonel Banisters secret agents at Scotland Yard, Stan and Sandra subdue Ben Maheny and his extremists group, and expose the Louvre curator as an art world fraud who sent a fake painting to Britain, for personal and monetary gains. Mona Lisa, Mona Lisa, is indeed an upscale story of today that will satisl3r the most elite of mystery and adventure seekers.
