St-Cyr and Kohler uncover a black market beekeeping
conspiracyDuring winter, the bees of Paris huddle into spheres,
sacrificing some of the drones to keep the queen warm. In the
winter of 1943, as rationing limits access to luxury goods, those
at the top of Parisian society think nothing of sacrificing the
poor for the sake of the black market. The latest casualty is a
beekeeper, murdered in his apiary after getting in the way of a
smuggling operation. The next night, burglars rob his hives, taking
several kilos of honey at the expense of 300,000 bees. As news
filters in about the hundreds of thousands of soldiers who died in
the fight for Stalingrad, the massacre of the bees seems
insignificant. But to inspectors Jean-Louis St-Cyr and Hermann
Kohler, the dead bees point to a conspiracy that, if revealed,
could send Paris into revolt.
