However, a strange, odd, looking couple at their hotel have raised young David’s suspicions. After overhearing their conversation, he’s sure something sinister is about to take place. Or is it just his overactive imagination? But when a Picasso is stolen from the Peggy Guggenheim Museum, it seems David could be right after all. Will his quick thinking detective skills save not only the painting but his younger brother as well?
