Content

April 1990, Guadeloupe: French-Algerian judge Anne Marie Laveaud has been living and working in the French Caribbean department of Guadeloupe for more than a decade, but her days are still full of surprises – for example, the fact that every witness Anne Marie interviews grills her about when she’s going to get remarried. She is only just starting to investigate an increasingly suspicious supposed suicide of a high-profile environmental activist and media personality when she is pulled off the case. Is it because she was getting too close to the truth?
