Vienna. March 1938. A desperate woman slips through late-night streets, clutching a bundle in her arms. Drunken Nazi supporters roam streets like wild dogs, waiting for Hitler's Wehrmacht to cross into Austria. Flash forward fifty years to New York. Ross Cortese, NYPD detective, down on his luck, needs money. He takes Polaroids of two pieces of furniture in his possession to an auction house. In Vienna, Erich Hanfnagel, wealthy collector, learns that important pieces of Secession furniture have surfaced. Determined to add them to his collection, he sends his daughter to New York. Ross's discovery at the auction house and attraction to the beautiful Willi Hanfnagel, propel him on a journey to Vienna. Behind the baroque facade of the city in which Hitler learned the use of anti-Semitism as a political weapon, neo-Nazi forces plot to overthrow the government. The clock counts down to the final, terrifying stage of the conspiracy and the truth about Ross's enemies and those he loves.
