After another burglary took place on the same premises, Nathalie is suspected of being a spy in the employ of foreign powers. Fortunately, she finds an unlikely admirer in Inspector Fabre and she is hastily exonerated. Anxious to get to the bottom of the matter, Nathalie begins her own investigation but things take a serious turn when Pierre, the eldest Darbon brother, is murdered. Nathalie finds she has her work cut out for her if she is to solve this case. In addition to Inspector Fabre she must deal with two likely spies, Dantoren and Alberto, whilst flirting with Jean, the youngest of the Darbons. And what is she to make of the fact that Pellec was caught on camera in the factory on the very night that Pierre was murdered...?
