Nathalie Séchard, President of France, has decided not to run for a second term. The presidential succession is open. Within the government, a pitiless game begins. After two years of fighting against the pandemic, the country is exhausted: the anti-vaxers demonstrate, the police enforce a drastic lockdown, riots multiply. Chaos sets in. And Clio, twenty years old, the ultra-left daughter of a presidential candidate, becomes a target...

With this noir novel, master of the genre Jérôme Leroy offers us the most brilliant and powerful political fiction. From secrets to assassinations, he shows us the workings of the machine of power.
