After making a costly error at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, bright American scientist Sophie Clarke takes a position at the Rijksmuseum to attempt her most ambitious restoration project yet…her reputation. Opportunity strikes when Dirk Van de Voort, Amsterdam’s wealthiest (and fussiest) bachelor, pops in to the lab seeking an analyst for a never-before-seen Rembrandt portrait. With the salivating art establishment on her heels, Sophie must prove that there is much more to the portrait, and herself, than meets the eye.
