From the Irish countryside to London to New York and back again, Maggie reenters the world as a countess and shady art dealer. With her panache and charisma, she finds more than an auction, a rekindled interracial love affair, helpful relatives and a painting of great price. She finds more than she bargained for in the labyrinth and milieu of stolen art.


♦ When Maggie is discovered in the tub in her sister’s house her pose, etc, is a loose interpretation of Jacques-Louis David’s painting “The Death of Marat”.
♦ British singer Jenny Darren is heard every time Maggie Sheridan’s music is played in this series.


• When Maggie confronts Aiden after the robbery, she takes the motorcycle helmet off with both hands but in alternating shots is also able to hold a gun on him.
