I note that an armed gang in Zurich have stolen £85 million worth of paintings by Van Gogh, Degas, Cezanne and Monet.
That's terrible. It's just Monet for nothing.

All they have for clues are
1. a voice print of one of the perps shouting to the driver, "Van! Go!"
2. It was recorded on happily on old technology, Merry Casette [Mary Cassatt]
3. The winter weather at least caused them to leave behind some footprints. Yup, it was the wrong Cezanne for a clean get-away.

Unfortunately, Degas away. The authorities are embarassed to lose le track, but but will keep up the search.

Sorry. This Sisley [Alfred].

They were female art thieves, and I'm already halfway through the novelization. Here's a taster:

"Get the paintings in the van and gogh!" says Anne. "Step on de gas!"

Does this mean the painting's owners are now baroque?

And I'm groaning. Oh, the agony! Oh, the puns!

'Course, if they couldn't get the van to gogh they could always hail a hockney carriage as a means of bringing home the bacon . . .
