Presidential elections are announced for 35 days later and there is no doubt that the prime minister, Philip Deleuvre will run for the Élysée. But what few people know is that the prime minister knows more than he claims. This grand lie causes a return to business of Simon Kapita a former spin doctor to the late president. Anxious to preserve the honour of his dead friend and some form of political ethics, this "man of the shadows" sets out to find a candidate who will be able to beat Deleuvre — who is being advised by Kapita's former protégé Ludovic Desmeuze.
When the French president falls victim to a suicide bomber, his ex-communications adviser, Simon Kapita, finds political manoeuvrings soon begin as he is courted by his sworn enemy, the prime minister,
The president's funeral is barely over when the campaign for an early election starts. Kapita must swiftly find a candidate and locates the perfect contender in the president's ex-lover, Anne Visage.

The political campaign is in full swing, and, with the first round of the elections only one week away, Simon Kapita's wife prepares to reveal the truth about the attack on the French president.
To have any chance of winning the election, Anne now needs her enemy to back her, but the price of his support may just be too high. Kapita confronts Valentine about her relationship with Desmeuze.
The discovery of the bugged hotel room puts Anne's whole campaign in jeopardy. Blackmail, betrayal, last-minute alliances... nothing holds the spin doctors and politicians back in the race for office.
