Abel Bac, a police officer, has been suspended from duty for unknown reasons.
Haunted by a recurring nightmare, he walks the streets of Paris hoping to lose
himself in the city, but somehow, he always finds his way home. All that gives
Abel comfort are the ninety-four orchids which populate his small apartment.

In museums across Paris something strange is happening. A white horse appears
in the library of the Pompidou Centre. Then stuffed wolves are displayed in a
gallery, dressed in fine garments and drinking tea. The police are baffled and
Abel, who is somehow linked to it all, is becoming more and more unnerved.

Soon, the hidden darkness of his life will rise to the surface and lead him to
Mila, the mysterious artist at the heart of this enigma. And then he discovers
that nothing about these events is coincidental . . .
