Intense young "tough" Thomas Seyr is a 28-year-old real estate broker involved in shady business deals. His business partners, Fabrice and Sami, spend much of their time ruthlessly chasing squatters and illegal immigrants out of the buildings they have procured and trying to work their way around government housing regulations. Thomas is born to this kind of work; his father, Robert, is also involved in dodgy enterprises and sometimes calls upon Thomas to beat up people who refuse to pay. Tom shows a protective and defensive attitude toward his father who doesn't always appreciate what his son does for him–so much so that when his father introduces his new girlfriend to Tom, Tom undermines her to her face, and insults her to his father, insisting she is an opportunistic "whore." Later, when he tries to enlist her help to watch over his father, she tells him they broke up due to Robert changing his attitude and she is aware of Tom's backstabbing because Robert told her. Robert by this time is in danger from a Russian gangster, Minskov (Anton Yakovlev) who scammed him out of 300,000 Euros and Tom is worried for his safety.

Des mots mystérieux, inquiétants, sont criés comme une malédiction sur la place Igor-Stravinsky… La découverte d'un mort, redoutée par Adamsberg — un premier corps noirci, première victime de la peste — annonce le retour du terrible fléau… Il semble pourtant que quelqu'un contrôle l'épidémie et en désigne les cibles.

Bruno et Malik sont les responsables de La Voix des Justes et de L'Escale, deux associations respectives qui œuvrent depuis 20 ans dans le monde des enfants et adolescents autistes qu'ils aident de leur mieux. Ils forment également des jeunes issus de quartiers difficiles, pour encadrer ces cas « complexes », que les structures médicales refusent. L'association de Bruno est cependant dans le viseur de l'Inspection générale des affaires sociales.
