The game opens in Paris, where photo-journalist Nico Collard has just picked up an assignment. She is en route to the Palais Royale to interview media magnate Pierre Carchon. This scoop is the break that she has been waiting for - the chance to make herself a household name. Carchon has been giving a talk to a select group of luminaries in his famed salon overlooking the central garden, but Nico has a special invite for a private audience. Little does she know that the mime, who startles her as she approaches, is a merciless killer in waiting. Or that she and Carchon already share a sinister and powerful connection. Or that Carchon's glamorous wife Imelda will change Nico's life forever. As the story unfolds, it is clear that everyone has a dark secret - Nico will be devastated to discover her own. Aided by the amiable American tourist George Stobbart, Nico embarks upon a quest to find the killer and uncover the ancient conspiracy he is protecting. Never in their most fevered imaginings could the two predict the dark events to follow.
