"A young woman in Schiltigheim dies after being
stabbed three times?' the bold font of the short newspaper article fills Chief
Inspector Adamsberg with a powerful sensation of terror that the idea of
Neptune finally releases from the dark cavernous depths of his being. For 14
years, in an attempt to clear his brother's name, Adamsberg had hounded and
tracked the monster that he called the Trident, always hot on his heels but
nevertheless always losing the trail. He had lost all hope and, above all, he
had also lost his brother. The Trident had proven far more powerful than he. A
titan, a devil, a Poseidon from hell, who left a trail of impaled victims,
their bodies marked by a line of three holes. But the monster had died. Yet
Adamsberg is absolutely sure, against all odds, that the murder in Schiltigheim
is the work of his enemy. After a drinking binge on a police training venue in Quebec, Adamsberg wakes
up in front of his apartment building, with a total black out as to what
happened between leaving the bar and coming to. Asked to return to Quebec to identify a
murder victim, Adamsberg recognizes the corpse as being that of Noëlla Corbel,
a lady with whom he had had a brief affair, he realizes that he is suspected of
the murder. His life is turned upside down; the roles reverted from being the
huntsman into being the prey. Just like his brother 30 years ago he had fallen
into a black hole. Is it his brother who killed the young woman? Did he kill
her? Is he, in turn, the victim of the Trident?
Based on the bestselling novel by Fred Vargas.
