His wife has left him and he has been transferred to the provinces: Capitaine Roger Blanc’s stands in ruins. Until recently he successfully investigated corruption cases in Paris, but he stepped on some mighty toes in the process. So now he finds himself alone in his new home, a dilapidated oil mill that he had inherited years ago from an uncle.
But even before Blanc has the chance to get used to his new situation he is assigned to a murder case, and suddenly the captain is involved in an intrigue that takes him deeper into the inner workings of his new home than he would like to go. And he also has to get used to his new col-leagues, to his partner Marius, who is more interested in Rosé than in his work or to the temper-amental computer specialist Fabienne, who seems to belong anywhere except in this sleepy little town. And then there is the feared and attractive examining magistrate Aveline Vialaron-Allègre, who is married to, of all people, the politician who ruined Blanc’s career.
Then a second murder occurs – and it comes to a showdown in the pine forests that the mistral is in the process of turning into a raging sea of flames…
