Police captain Jean-Baptiste Adamsberg doesn’t like springtime.

Strange signs spread out across the doors of Paris buildings, and mysterious, troubling words ringing out in public places. Then what Adamsberg most dreaded occurs: the first death, the person’s face frozen in a look of terror, signs of the Plague. It was this that the riddle announced, the return of this terrible plague, but with a surprising variation: it seems that someone controls the disease and takes it wherever he wants...
