Jeweler Sam Bertram was murdered by three Europeans killers, of rival feral species, to steal the rarest Ancient gold coins from his safe. Two are dead, the third steals a uniform from a cop he murders. The coins are found on the elusive Farley Kolt, who is arrested and tells Nick enough to work out he was late aunt Marie's true love.
