Daniel Jacquot is on the case again - this time in a Provencal village with a crime going back to the war

She comes to Provence and begins to investigate with Jacquot, and together they uncover a secret that goes back more than half a century, a story of love and betrayal, hatred and blackmail in which his own family had a tragic part to play.
