Women Law Enforcers, Enjoying Fashion, Cuisine & Jazz, while Investigating International Crime.
Vancouver Police officers Treena Barton and Charli Gagnon investigate the professional theft of a two-million-dollar Porsche and mid-six figures diamond necklace from a West Vancouver resident during a charitable event.
They're later drawn into the theft of a Stradivari violin during another charitable event in Vancouver for sick children.
Edmonton RCMP detectives investigate the theft of Steve McQueen's The Bullet and a multi-million-dollar McLaren while the Toronto Police Service do likewise in the theft of twenty-million dollars in stamps from a wealthy Torontonian.
There is a common denominator in all the high-end thefts.
Adriana Gustafsson.
Gustafsson was an established and wealthy family whose ancestors immigrated from Norway decades previously and built a financial empire from modest beginnings…the fortune acquired on the backs of Chinese laborers in the eighteen hundreds.
Although long gone, their legacy for acquiring the finer things in life was inherited by their great granddaughter, Adriana, who simultaneously rejected the means by which they amassed their possessions.
The disdain for her family, its wealth and heritage developed during a grade eleven high school World History class where a discussion revolved around British Columbia’s 1800’s era.
Adriana was unable to extricate herself from the shame her family created. She completed high school then left immediately for the University of Zurich where she remained for six years.
The Vancouverite used her social position & cunningness to steal multi-million-dollar treasures from those in her family’s social circle.
Rebecca Simpson and her partner, Dr. Penelope Barker relocated their investigative business from Santa Barbara, Ca. to Vancouver, British Columbia where they were soon retained by an insurance company to locate a stolen two-million-dollar Porsche.
Their former colleague, Jessica Fukishura, relocated her legal practice from Santa Barbara, California to Vancouver and through the benefit of her lucrative retirement income, she is installed as the pro-bono in-house attorney for the Women’s Center.
She finally meets a man who has his act together; forty-five, VPD detective, a widower with two teenage girls.
100% of the revenue from the stolen merchandise is deposited into an anonymous Swiss bank account which executes her bank transfers to charities, children’s and teenager support groups, women’s resource, and sexual assault centers.
