Freelance private detective Gabriel Lecouvreur, aka the Octopus, investigates a gruesome series of murders in a French harbor town. Cheryl's parents' graves have been desecrated, and investigating this crime leads the couple to all sorts of quirky characters and suspects. There is a corpse in S&M gear, a racist Front National member, local prostitutes, dwarves, a drunken Scottish writer and a Spanish accomplice. And Cheryl herself has a sexual appetite that could keep Gabriel permanently occupied.
