The second Inspector Lucas Rocco Investigation.
Picardie, France. 1963. A truck drops a group of illegal workers by a deserted stretch of canal in the dead of night near Poissons-les-Marais, desperate travellers in a pipeline, searching for a better life. Days later, one of them surfaces, stabbed to death.
For Inspector Lucas Rocco, finding the victim's fellow travellers presents problems loaded with the threat of civil unrest - something which terrifies his bosses in the Ministry. His investigation brings him into the path of Algerian gangster, Samir Farek, who has big plans and a history of disposing of anyone who crosses him. Caught between his instinct to protect, his bosses interested only in preserving the status quo, and facing the threat of a dangerous gangster who recognises no boundaries in the murderous pursuit of his plans, Rocco begins to wonder how long he can survive.
