It is yet another autumn in the Athens of the financial crisis and not a drop of redemptory rain seems in sight. Pavlos Marinos, professor of comparative literature, is putting his old mentor to rest, adding one more beloved ghost to the company of the shadows that have been following him since childhood. The only way for him to deal with the panic of his loneliness seems to be in his work, in the words.
At the same time, detective Alexandra Chatzi finds herself at an impasse with the case she has been working on: the murder of a number of girls killed with a very specific signature taken from a unique and legendary literary work.
The professor and police detective, brought together by a very odd fatal connection, will join forces and try to search for clues in fragments, drafts and scattered papers of authors and poets so they may ultimately find some light in the endless darkness of the city.
During this autumn in the never-ending crisis, Athens becomes a garden of wilting girls and, in their shadow, crime-solving becomes synonymous with the most urgent study of death which, sometimes, is what human life is really all about.
