In sun-kissed Côte d'Azur, on the tarmac of Nice's Airport, Danny accidentally comes across Michelle Devigne, an alluring blonde art student of the Vallauris Art Centre, carrying a sketchbook with an unidentifiable ink portrait of a man. However, this brief encounter will abruptly end, when out of the blue, an assassin from a distance will shoot Michelle on the shoulder, sending her to the hospital. Why would someone shoot a girl like that or was the bullet actually meant for Danny? As the Authorities require him not to leave the country, Judge Fulton, Brett and Danny will try to find out the connection between Michelle's jeweller uncle who specialises in medals and gold coins and the unauthorised gold trafficking in the shape of counterfeit 100-franc gold Napoleon III coins. Undoubtedly, this seemingly legitimate operation funnels something much bigger, but will the boys figure it out before the birds fly away?
