Baffled, the assembled people protest that they don't have access to that sort of money.
The attackers kidnap the elderly grandfather and storm off into the night.Now senior policewoman Alex Morrow has been summoned to investigate the case.
But there are so many mysteries. Who were the men? And why did they think a normal household concealed untold riches?
