St-Cyr and Kohler uncover a black market beekeeping conspiracyDuring winter, the bees of Paris huddle into spheres, sacrificing some of the drones to keep the queen warm.

The next night, burglars rob his hives, taking several kilos of honey at the expense of 300,000 bees.

A woman is brutally murdered in Avignon's Papal PalaceSix hundred years before the Germans conquered Paris, the pope came to Avignon to rule the Roman Church from afar. In January 1943, Jean-Louis St-Cyr and Hermann Kohler visit the former Papal Palace-not as tourists, but as detectives. Where once the pope spoke to God, a woman has had her throat cut. Her corpse seems to have appeared from out of the past. Despite the strictures of wartime rationing, she died in finery, costumed in the ermine and silk of a Renaissance courtier. She appears to have been killed with a scythe, pulled across her neck in one swift stroke, like a shepherd slaughtering a sheep. Wartime Avignon is a small city, steeped in the jealousy that occupation encourages. As St-Cyr and Kohler dig into the city's past, they find motives for murder that predate the Nazis by centuries

In Geneva, a frail young woman sits down in a café. On her arm is a tattooed number--a souvenir from her time in Bergen-Belsen. As far as the French government is concerned, she is a dead woman, a casualty of the concentration camps. But after a narrow escape, Lily de St-Germain is back, and ready to take revenge on everyone who buried her. When the war started, Lily fled the countryside for Paris, hoping to convince her husband to abandon his work at the Louvre and help get their children to safety in England. There she found him in the arms of her sister, a betrayal that pushed her into the ranks of the Résistance--that fearful band of partisans who taught her to kill, and forced her to survive. The war may end in 1945, but Lily's battle will have only just begun
