He has every reason to be wary. His girlfriend, Camille, has packed her bags and left, and her absence has clipped his wings, right at the moment when he needed them most, for something has just occurred in Paris: a riddle bearing a curse, that could well turn into calamity if it's not resolved double quick. Strange signs spread out across the doors of Paris buildings, and mysterious, troubling words ringing out in public places.
