Marked Man : It must have been a hell of a night, one of those evenings where the world shifts and doors open and your life changes forever. If only Victor Carl could remember it. One moment he is having a late-night drink in his neighborhood bar and the next he awakens in the early morning hours on the floor of his apartment building's vestibule. When he strips off his shirt, he finds a white gauze bandage on his chest. Underneath is a tattoo of a heart and a rose and a name: CHANTAL ADAIR. Chantal is her sister, who disappeared years before. So begins the hunt. It leads him to a strip club, where a dancer named Monica Adair uses the stage name of Chantal. This all comes as Victor is in the midst of negotiations to broker a deal for a ex-con who wants to come in out of the cold and has a stolen Rembrandt. Someone is not happy that the painting has surfaced and that the ex-con is threatening to tell all, and someone is definitely not happy that questions are being asked about Chantal Adair.
