A priceless Velazquez is stolen from London's National Gallery. National art treasures and private collections are endangered. All this leads to a series of murders, blackmail and a Scotland Yard manhunt headed by the ever-resourceful Commander George Gideon. The man Gideon is after is conscienceless and egocentric with a deadly passion for paintings. He would like nothing better than to color Gideon dead.
