Dakar, Corniche Est
A stray radio signal emanating from the wristwatch of the kidnapped physicist Prof Jenadi G. Koslow sees Hektor Maille landing up in Senegal. His search for the professor takes him first to the island of Goree, where he dives straight into the past. He meets Agent Roff, the most extraordinarily well-disguised man in the Dakar «department». On Roff’s advice, Maille scanns the marshes north of Dakar for a spur of the missing Koslow – and experiences an eerie encounter.
