More than twenty years ago, Patricia Lockwood - a wealthy heiress - was kidnapped during a robbery at her family's estate, and imprisoned in an isolated cabin for months. She finally managed to escape, but both the kidnappers and the stolen items were never found. To this day. On the Upper West Side, the body of a solitary tenant is discovered in his penthouse apartment, alongside two unusual items: a stolen Vermeer painting, and a leather suitcase bearing the initials WHL3. For the first time in years, the authorities have a lead on both the kidnapping and another investigation case, as the painting and the suitcase point to one person. Windsor Horne Lockwood III—or Winn, according to his few friends—has no idea how his suitcase, along with the painting stolen from his family, ended up where they did. His curiosity grows, especially when it turns out that his cousin's kidnapper is also behind a local terrorist act, and that all those involved behind the scenes may still be on the loose. The two cases have baffled the FBI for decades, but Winn has three things they don't: a personal connection to the case; A fortune; and his unique sense of justice.
