Cover blurb:
The Doctor and Romana's plan for a peaceful holiday in Paris soon goes wrong. Cracks are beginning to appear in the fabric of time, indicating that dangerous time experiments are under way. Even the well-beaten path to the Louvre leads the Doctor deeper into mystery, much of which revolves around Count Scarlioni (Julian Glover), a sinister figure who has six Mona Lisa paintings stashed in his cellar — and they're all originals!
