When millionaire art collector Jonas Gault dies, he leaves a messy family situation and a complete, curated collection of artist, Jean Mettier, as part of his estate. While the kids are in DC, Sophie sneaks to the Gault estate for an art auction. It takes Nate 20 whole minutes to deduce her planned itinerary and affix upon her tail. Sophie claims she just wants to view 'Ma Mystere,' Mettier's first work which no person but the artist and owner have ever seen. Sophie claims it is just personal interest. Sterling turns up a few seconds after the crowd discovers the painting is missing and turns up the heat. Written by
