Episode 10 of 14 episodes

Steve Punt turns Private Investigator and tries to crack the case of the missing Cezanne masterpiece 'Auvers Sur Oise'. The painting was stolen from the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford whilst the city celebrated the millennium, and has not been seen since. His search takes him from the crime scene to the Mayfair art world, via leads at Scotland Yard and sightings on a pub wall in Coventry. With a watchful eye for any Mr Big who may be behind a painting reportedly "stolen to order", Punt PI enters the murky world of stolen art. But how close can he get to the stolen Cezanne? Producer Neil McCarthy.
