Storyline

'The Patrician Lady', a priceless painting, is coming from France on loan to Parnell's London gallery but, at its unveiling, there is an explosion and gun-shots, suggesting a robbery although it is all over in seconds. The painting is still in place but the name 'Zarchetti' is stamped on the back of the canvas, suggesting a switch. Since the real painting is presumed stolen, Parnell's girlfriend Bernice, a talented forger, makes several copies of the original which are palmed off as the original and offered to interested parties. But did 'The Patrician Lady' really leave the gallery? Written by don @ minifie-1
