Private investigator Perez’s new case takes him far off the coast, following the traces of modern treasure hunters, a dead professor and a mysterious club.
In Banyuls-sur-Mer, in the southwestern-most corner of France, a delicate layer of snow covers the usually sun-drenched beach. Perez, an amateur sleuth and small-time crook, has his hands full trying to fend off the unaccustomed weather conditions when his friend Mata, a diver at the Côte Vermeille Institute of Marine Biology, disappears without a trace. Not long afterwards, a professor is found dead in a pool and armed boats patrol the Mediterranean between France and Spain in search of a mysterious shipwreck. Together with his stepdaughter and son-in-law, Perez sets out in search of Mata, ending up in the middle of a fast-paced and complicated case that keeps posing one riddle after another. What inquiries was the professor making? What’s the deal with the notorious club, shrouded in mystery, to which the heads of the recovery companies allegedly belong? And what does all of this have to do with Mata?
