Fondly called "the Met," it is one of the most visited museums in the world. One day, the museum had, perhaps, one of the most bizarre displays it has ever held in its history. One morning, the bodies of two dead lovers hung from the ceiling of a chapel at the museum's cloisters.

With the help of his love interest, lawyer, Kathy Russell, they search and discover clues from the scene of these mysterious murders.
