Jacques Morcier is a young French student whose grandfather has arranged for him to study engineering at a British university. Soon after he starts his studies Jacques has to go back to his family in Vichy to see his dying father - a visit that will change his life. When he returns to England, Jacques' relationship with Kate Bennett, a fellow student, deepens, and a series of incidents gains the attention of both MI5 and MI6. Their far-reaching investigations embrace Canada, West Africa, France and Switzerland - but progress is frustrating. Have Holocaust funds been used? Could slavery be involved? Is there a religious or racial undercurrent? It's time to call in the experts, but who can shed light on a seemingly motiveless series of crimes in small-town England?
