The 1903 assassination of King Leopold II of Belgium in Dinard, France by an Italian anarchist and his flight to South America pursued by the Belgian Secret Service.
An Italian tract writer who aspires to greater involvement in the anarchist movement agrees to murder a sitting monarch. The story is set in the 1900’s in Dinard, France, a then fashionable seaside resort of stunning clifftop villas, a fabulous casino and a burgeoning art colony favored by American and British aristocrats and European royalty. After the king is slain aboard his yacht the murderer flees to Peru. Tracking him is an imperious Belgian Secret Service detective who sets off to bring the anarchist to justice. Unprepared for a life on the run, the Italian treks across Latin America in search of a refuge. But he makes the mistake of his life by settling in French Guiana and Kourou, the overseas capital of the French colonial penal system and infamous Devil’s Island.
