Some secrets are worth more than gold.

Roman Grey, an antique dealer and gypsy, has no real interest in the Royal Crown of Hungary, temporarily on display at St Patrick's Cathedral in New York City. But, due to his expertise in historical artefacts, he reluctantly answers a summons to analyse and protect the priceless relic.

Then, despite an ever vigilant team of police and key experts, a daring heist is pulled off and murder and chaos follow. Among the madness, Grey uncovers a hundred year old secret about the royal artefact that is more incredible than he could have ever imagined....
