Brand hires the Crew to get back at a woman who outbid him on a religious icon out of sheer peevishness. Since the woman is an avid collector of Mondrian art, the Crew decides to encourage her to bid, in an exclusive auction, on a recently-discovered “lost” painting.
Despite the fact that one of the original crew members was on a state-sponsored vacation, they pulled off the job brilliantly. One of Brand’s old associates, Bobby, filled in at the last minute, along with his lady friend Elle.
Not only did the Crew come out with $500,000, but they managed to make socialite Skye Chandler look like a complete fool. However, the job did bring a bit of interest in the Crew’s activities and it was time to relocate, at least until the heat cooled.
