“A political journalist in disgrace placed in the football section, Miss Pove is asked to follow the in-between rounds of the presidential campaign. The favorite is Pierre-Henry Mercier, heir to a powerful French family and a novice in politics. Troubled by this candidate whom she knew less smooth, Miss Pove embarks on an investigation as surprising as it is jubilant”, reads the official synopsis.
