    In August 1911, the Mona Lisa was audaciously stolen from the Louvre. The subsequent police investigation was led by Alphonse Bertillon, the inventor of the mug-shot and a pioneering figure in the new science of criminal investigation. Dorothy and Thomas Hoobler follow his pursuit of clues through Belle Epoque Paris, the world of avant-garde artists and cabaret, in which criminals and anarchists took advantage of the new opportunities offered by the inventiveness of the age.
