Art dealer Adrian Sellars has found a shortcut to the top, selling forgeries to wealthy Japanese businessmen. But when his most gifted forger is found viciously murdered in his Soho loft, and his finished ""Monet"" slashed to ribbons, Adrian offers to return the money to his client, Ryuichi Tanaka. Tanaka refuses it, and instead demands that Adrian deliver an original Monet, a painting worth eight million dollars. And he punctuates his request with an act of unspeakable violence that sends Adrian's life spiraling into chaos.
