Summary, etc.:
It is November 1993 and the French prime ministerial candidate is about to sign a treaty with Germany that wilt severely restrict immigration, reminiscent of the Vichy laws. Aimee Leduc is approached by a rabbi to decipher a fifty-year-old encrypted photograph and place it in the hands of Lili Stein. When she arrives at Lili's apartment in the Marais, the old Jewish quarter of Paris, she finds a corpse on whose forehead is carved a swastika. With the help of her partner, a dwarf with extraordinary computer hacking skills, Aimee is determined to solve this horrendous crime. Then more murders follow. Her search for the kilter leads her to a German war veteran involved in the 1940s with a Jewish girt he was supposed to send to her death. It takes Aimee undercover inside a neo-Nazi group, where she must play a dangerous game of current politics and old war crimes. Many of the older Jews in the Marais are afraid and prefer to leave the past alone, but the horrible legacy of the death camps and the words "never forget" propel Aimee to find out the true identities of the criminals past and present.
