Young history teacher Bear Hoskins' visit to an art centre evokes memories of a special relationship from his student days. When he arrives in Basel, Switzerland, for a summer holiday, his tranquillity is soon disturbed. An unexpected encounter and a shared dilemma lead him on a quest to help piece together a fifty-year-old art mystery. Bear finds himself immersed in a mission of stealth alongside a determined competitor. His elusive movements and seemingly clandestine behaviour stir the curiosity of colleagues and pupils alike as the new school year unfolds. Bear's zeal for crossing national borders is rekindled as he confronts his own personal history and delves into secrets of wartime Europe.
