In 1960s the world stood on the brink of chaos: the Cold War is raging; assassination and conspiracy sweep across the globe. In the midst of it, all roads lead back to one man. Lucien Rivard is a trouble-shooter juggling the aims and enemies of the super-power's Secret Services. Working with military and organized crime factions around the world Lucien is a go-between, travelling to the casinos of Havana, the night clubs of Dallas, the seedy heroin labs of Marseille, the tropical jungles of Indonesia and the urban jungles of New Orleans and Montreal. As tension mounts, with war one whisper away, Rivard becomes a secret weapon for a black ops organization more sinister than he can imagine and an unwitting protagonist in a tragic chain of events that unfolds before his shattered eyes. The trap is set, and soon Lucien realizes he may be the bait.
