Paris, January 1943: the war rages throughout Europe, but France lies under an enforced and uneasy occupation...

Detectives Jean-Louis St-Cyr of the Surete Nationale and Hermann Kohler of the Gestapo are back in Paris after Madrigal, a strange and dangerous case in Avignon. But they barely have time to draw breath before they are poking around in the darkened restaurant of the Gare du Lyon looking into a missing shipment of honey. The signals coming down from high are ominous - important interests are involved, and it is clear that they must exercise extreme caution. Why honey? Because a beekeeper in Belleville has been murdered; the new widow has connections she would rather not go into, and before long the ramifications of this case stretch all the way to Switzerland - and Stalingrad, graveyard to Hitler's war effort...

Set against the oppressive backdrop of a captive society, this is the latest novel in an astonishingly original and gripping series of crime novels.
