Paris, 1899.
The French president Félix Faure has just died. Crippled by the far right, anti-Semitic groups and rising anarchy, France has never appeared so weak.

When police chief Louis Lépine is urgently called out of retirement to restore order in Paris, the tragic discovery of a young woman’s torso in a suitcase floating down the Seine, spurs a young, ambitious detective Antoine Jouin into action at the heart of the police headquarters.

Joseph Fiersi is a corrupt officer known for blackmail who also moonlights as a hit man for the undercover police. He’s taken a particular interest in this criminal investigation and enlists Meg Steinheil – the courtesan accused of killing the frail-hearted president during sex – to work as a spy for him. In Paris, where crime and sin mix with opulence and puritanism, all of these characters will cross paths and join forces to save France.

Murders, blackmail, riots, conspiracies, coups – welcome to la Belle Époque.
