France, 1963. A farmer reports a truck ramming into a car near Amiens, Picardie, followed by gunfire.

A group of Englishmen are brought in after a bar fight.

A homeless man's body is discovered in a burnt-out truck.

All this occurs after multiple attempts on the President's life. Inspector Lucas Rocco knows there's a connection somewhere. Yet despite all clues pointing to the Pont Noir for the next attack on the President, his superiors reject his suspicions.

Finding himself suspended, the victim of a set-up, with no badge and no authority, and facing the lethal response of English gangsters, Rocco has to go it alone…

A French historical crime thriller full of suspense and intrigue, perfect for fans of Maigret, Martin Walker and Jean-Luc Bannalec.
