Publisher's Summary

Février 1927. Le Tout-Paris assiste aux obsèques de Marcel Péricourt. Sa fille, Madeleine, doit prendre la tête de l'empire financier dont elle est l'héritière, mais le destin en décide autrement. Son fils, Paul, d'un geste inattendu et tragique, va placer Madeleine sur le chemin de la ruine et du déclassement.

Face à l'adversité des hommes, à la cupidité de son époque, à la corruption de son milieu et à l'ambition de son entourage, Madeleine devra déployer des trésors d'intelligence, d'énergie mais aussi de machiavélisme pour survivre et reconstruire sa vie. Tâche d'autant plus difficile dans une France qui observe, impuissante, les premières couleurs de l'incendie qui va ravager l'Europe.

Avec la participation de Zygmunt Miloszewski pour les mots lus en polonais.

Enthralling story with a historical view

Pierre Lemaitre is a great storyteller and narrator shedding light on a historical period he researched in detail. Political, social and other topics are deftly woven into an entertaining narrative.
