***
New York, 1970's. When a girl's body, neatly sliced into six individual pieces, is discovered at the scene of a car crash, the driver is posthumously accused of her murder. But Roman Grey, an expert in gypsy antiques and former friend to the driver, knows there is more to the case than the convenient closing of a crime file.

The police are determined to pin the blame on a gypsy. Desperate to avoid a confrontation between the police and New York's gypsy community, Roman vows to unearth the truth about the murder and clear his friend's name, no matter what the cost . . .
