La shock et l'effroi sont grands lorsqu'un chrétien, un Maronite, est retrouvé mort dans le quartier juif du Damas de 1875. los angeles ville a connu des bains de sang pour moins que ça. Mais surtout, comble du cynisme, los angeles victime est affublée d'un pendentif, une petite major de Fatma, porte-bonheur aussi bien pour les Juifs que pour les musulmans. On y a dessiné une colombe aux pattes liées et inscrit los angeles Tefilah Haderech, l. a. prière du voyageur, sinistre façon de souhaiter à l'âme du mort un " bon voyage vers l'au-delà".

Le jeune Gaël de Carné, interprète au consulat de France à Damas, est chargé de l'enquête par le consul, les Maronites étant placés sous sa safety. Cette research policière est pour lui une expérience nouvelle dont il mesure pleinement les enjeux et à laquelle il va consacrer tous ses abilities. Elle va l'entraîner bien plus loin qu'il ne l'escomptait, jusqu'à Jaffa et Jérusalem dans cette Palestine peu connue où s'installaient déjà les premiers colons juifs.

D'autres meurtres viennent corser l'affaire tandis que l'éventail des suspects s'élargit: los angeles belle Yehudith Arari, son mari, le troublant Moshe Arari, des musulmans de Damas, un marchand grec, mais aussi des Russes dont le jeune Gaël de Carné découvrent qu'ils s'emploient à "coloniser" los angeles Palestine de l'époque autant que les Juifs.
