In Giverny in Normandy, the village where he lived and painted the great impressionist painter Claude Monet, a series of murders breaks the calm of the tourist resort. The Sérénac inspector survey leads us into contact with three women. The first, fanette is 11 years old and is passionate about painting. The second, Stéphanie, is the seductive master of the village, while the third of her is an old acid that spies on the secrets of her fellow citizens. At the center of history a devastating passion around which the stolen or lost canvases of Monet run (among which the black water lilies that the artist would have painted before he died). Stolen or lost as illusions when passing and present they confuse and youth and death challenge time. The intertwining is built in a masterful way and the end is surprising, totally unpredictable. Each character is a true enigma. An investigation with a succession of twists, where the boundaries broke between reality and illusion and between past and present. A novel Noir who takes us into a maze of mirrors in which he lies to the reader to distinguish the true from the false.
