The Rome police commissioner Flavio Bertone investigates the murder of a college professor. All clues suggest that the killer is the actor Diego Ribonskij, the professor’s lover. But Bertone is not convinced, and facing the ire of his superiors he launches his own personal investigation that will lead him around Spain, grappling with a mystery rooted in Velázquez’s enigmatic painting, Las Meninas. But as Bertone goes further down the rabbit hole, the murders continue… with no guarantee that the good guys will win out in the end.
