A 1956 master tape of an Elvis Presley recording never released becomes the object of a chase through the French countryside. A small-time crook and a ruthless collector want it. A shady promoter in the music business wants it. A cowboy wants it. And they're all following Jordan Mayfair...
An architect from Savannah, Georgia, Jordan travels to Provence with visions of Roman ruins bathed in magical Proven al light, exquisite foods and wines, and alluring Frenchmen that will make her forget she's just turned fifty. Her holiday takes an unexpected turn when her suitcase vanishes on a train and a hit-and-run hits too close to home. Danger follows her to the peaceful village of Fontvieille, where sketches by Van Gogh have disappeared. When Felicity Blake, Jordan's old friend from sorority days, turns up in Fontvieille, Jordan has to wonder if Felicity is following her, too. Pursued through ancient tunnels and narrow, twisting village streets, Jordan becomes an unwilling player in dramas as intricate and intriguing as the secret passages she discovers.
Among the colorful inhabitants of Fontvieille, Jordan finds her alluring Frenchman, but Monsieur Broussard, wealthy patron of the arts, may be stealing rather than trying to recover the missing sketches that have the town in a frenzy. More than anything, Jordan needs to figure out who she can trust as she finds her way through a labyrinth of art, rock-and-roll-and murder-against the captivating backdrop of Provence.
