An unfinished case is always frustrating for the police, and Detective Chief Inspector Sheldon Hunter is no exception. The murder of a local art gallery owner in Chatfield after a private viewing one night in February 1986 and the theft of the painting on display had Hunter stumped. After months of enquiry, every possible avenue had been checked and checked again, and still the investigation had turned up nothing. No suspects, no murder weapon, no painting and, indeed, no artist. Reluctantly, with no leads to pursue, the case is filed - unsolved.
