Businessman , billionaire and oil sheikh plus presidents and you have a mystery to end all mysterious. Where is Inspectors Clouseau, Morse or Maigret when you need them most?

    In Question and in play is a long last pairing by Italian grand master Leonardo da Vinci no less. Discovery of an alleged painting from old Leo’s hand (?) called the Salvador Mundi sets off an international craze and global treatise hunt to determine 1) if this is the real thing and 2) who will bid on this coveted prize.
