Banacek: To Steal a King

The Ten Kings – ten rare coins, each depicting an ancient monarch. The collection represents fifteen years work by Allen Markham, and he plans to auction it to one of three groups. He puts the collection in the special safe, chooses his combination and sets the time lock, and goes to bed. The next morning, the collection has vanished! Security reports no one opened the safe, and with a time lock no one could. But someone got the coins out, somehow. It is while visiting one of the bidders that Banacek gets an important clue...
