Detective. Spy. Killer. Hero or crook, it depends on the employer ... April 1917. War is raging throughout France. In Paris, the opposition led by Georges Clemenceau trying to topple the government. Silas Corey Caillaux, former reporter, agent of the 2nd Bureau, detective and adventurer full-time, committed by Clemenceau to find a reporter disappeared. The latter would have collected evidence of the betrayal of the head of government.
Corey, not content to accept the mission immediately sells its services to the 2nd Bureau and Ms. Zarkoff, industrials armament compromised in the case. With its three salaries, Corey embarked on the track of the reporter, and soon to cross the path of the dreaded spy Aquila, who directs Kaiser's operations in France. The outcome of the war could well depend the outcome of its investigation. But in fact, someone one he knows who Silas Corey really works? Fabien Nury and Pierre Alary, respectively writer of Once upon a time in France and designer of Belladonna, create a diptych with the first character in the class, to arrogance and pleasurable panache, a scoundrel that we already love to hate.
