By A. C. Baantjer

Op het politiebureau aan de Warmoesstraat doet makelaar Van Vlaanderen aangifte van diefstal van juwelen ter waarde van een miljoen gulden. Zonder het geringste spoortje van braak is zijn unieke antieke juwelenverzameling verdwenen uit de kluis in zijn huis aan de Herengracht. Het verhaal klinkt ongeloofwaardig, maar rechercheur De Cock wil aan de zaak beginnen. Dan rinkelt de telefoon. Vledder neemt op en luistert. Met een bleek gezicht wendt hij zich tot zijn leermeester. 'Je kunt jouw onderzoek naar de juwelen voorlopig wel vergeten.' 'Hoezo?' 'Er ligt een dode clown aan de voet van de Schreierstoren.' Even later staren De Cock en Vledder door de roestige spijlen van een ijzeren hek naar beneden. Vlak boven het water van de gracht is het smalle vlondertje bijna geheel bedekt met een glanzend wit clownspak. Even boven het midden steekt een vervaarlijk groot mes in een onregelmatige kring donkerrood bloed. De Cock staat voor raadsels. Maar het is zijn beroep, om niet te zeggen zijn roeping, raadsels als deze op te lossen.

And what is extraordinary, if a dozen others crowd into this room, each one will feel the same. Each person who looks at her becomes the only person in her world. It is flattering and, at the same time, maddening, because she gives away nothing of herself. I close my eyes and imagine that she has vanished. 2 THE MYSTERY or MONA LISA that I am pursuing begins in Paris at the end of the Belle Époque, when the city was poised at the cusp of an irreverent new century and an irreverent new art. In the brief avantguerre interlude before trench warfare and unutterable loss, a burst of glorious incandescent energy made the City of Lights electric.

A century later, the mystery lingers, the truth as elusive as the prize. Who stole Mona Lisa? THE VANISHING ACT LOUIS BÉROUD PAINTING IN THE SALON CARRÉ Painter Louis Béroud had been copying Mona Lisa. When he returned to complete his painting on Tuesday, August 22, 1911, he made a startling discovery. S. Mauritania. He carried a Louis Vuitton case. The ship had been delayed for an extra day in quarantine at the mouth of the harbor awaiting clearance. At first light, the Mauritania was released, and like a dowager queen ignoring the minion tugs hauling and chugging, she began a stately glide up the river to a berth on the west bank of Manhattan island.

Here, smiled on by the painted lady he called variously Madame Lisa and the Sphinx of the Occident, Napoleon had married Marie-Therese of Austria to secure an heir and an alliance. After the ceremony, he crossed the gardens to the Tuileries Palace and settled the two women in his bedroom—his new bride and his Madame Lisa. The Louvre owned the richest collection of sixteenth-century masterworks outside of Italy, and many of them were displayed in the Salon Carré—Titian's Entombment of Christ, Rembrandt's Supper at Emmaus, Correggio's Betrothal of St.
