On a sultry night in June 1897, Pyotr Ivanovich Balenov, a young Russian, and two young women transport a dead man through the narrow streets of a working class neighborhood in Paris. They throw the body into the canal and the girls flee to the Latin Quarter to hide with one of Pyotr's anarchist "comrades." They do not realize that they, too, are being watched. Their subsequent disappearance and the violent acts that follow will set Clarie Martin, a teacher and mother of a toddler, and her husband, magistrate Bernard Martin (last seen in?Cezanne's Quarry?and?The Blood of Lorraine) on a dangerous quest to rescue them from a vicious killer in fin-de-siecle Paris.
