While Canadian history professor Andrew Stanhope is doing research in Paris on the German invasion of France, he stumbles upon an odd and long-lost exchange between Colonel Marius Michel, principal deputy in France's counter-intelligence agency, the Deuxieme Bureau, and the Directeur-general of the Val de Grace military hospital. The Colonel wants Chastenet to warn the incoming Prime Minister, Philippe Petain, that there is an active spy in the French war ministry and that Petain's own ring of advisors includes at least one Nazi sympathizer. In flashbacks to 1940, the story of Marius Michel unfolds as he attempts to track down the traitor, whose passing of military secrets surely contributed to the swift and ignominious defeat of France. Working undercover in occupied Paris, Working undercover in occupied Paris, Michel discovers a puzzling connection to the high fashion house Ariege, and its treasonous owner, Louis Loriot. Michel is convinced that the recent deaths of Ariege employees were anything but accidental, and he knows his own life is in peril.
