Ten thousand dollars for her reward, cries Paris. … Mona Lisa's innumerable lovers should unite to offer a purse that would bring her straightaway back to the place the world looks upon as her home. No one man should have exclusive right to feed on that mysterious loveliness. The fatal-attraction theory appealed to the French heart and softened the loss.

If he were able to see into the future, he would have paid closer attention, but a summer Sunday in the Louvre—who could remember? Mon Dieu! The old guard bristled. She was there when I left on Sunday night, when the museum closed. That is all I know. When Judge Drioux pressed for details, Paupardin could not be certain. It was difficult to recall anything about that day except the oppressive heat that had soaked through his uniform, through his vest, plastering it to his hairy chest. Magistrate Drioux was known as “the bulldog” because of his tenacious, sometimes fierce questioning and a naturally churlish expression.
The guard recognized him, a quintessential German, hair flaxen, eyes ice blue, warmed now by the lust to possess the dark lady. He mooned over her, gazing into her liquid eyes, and she seemed to answer. Eyes are the mirror of the soul, her creator, Leonardo da Vinci, believed. Men had been coming to court her for years, bearing flowers, notes, and poems that Paupardin scooped up and tossed out at the end of the day. She accepted their attentions democratically but gave nothing in return, just the same half-smile.
