A European village is alarmed by a number of unexplained deaths that the local police are unable to solve. The authorities call in Inspector Doren of Interpol, and the only clue the Chief Constable can give the detective is the fact that, each time a murder was committed, the electric lights in the whole neighborhood went out. The locals believe that the killings of the young girls are linked to the vague shadows in the caves under the local castle and to the mysterious Curse of the Green Eyes. They distrust the inspector and offer no assistance when still another murder takes place at the village inn---in the room next to that occupied by the inspector---and the body disappears. There are many suspects: the chattering innkeeper; the mysterious Professor Adelsberg; his manservant John ; the deaf-and-dumb Tom; and the inscrutable doctor, who has been issuing strange death certificates. Doren moves to the castle, where Professor Adelsberg is carrying out some scientific studies. There he meets the Professor's pretty assistant Karin. She is marked as the next victim.

At 13 years old, Marie-Joseph Paul Roch Yves Gilbert Motier inherited from his parents a long name, a fortune bigger then that, and the title of Marquis de La Fayette. Barely past majority, he was a brilliant lieutenant and a King Musketeer, and married Adrienne, second daughter of the Duke of Ayen. Educated in the new ideas about religion, science, and humankind, supported by his lovely wife but against his conservative family, he became involved in politics, favouring the faction of Queen Marie Antoinette against that of the King Louis XVI. Therefore, in 1776, he was ready to offer much needed help when Silas Dean, a secret agent from the thirteen Rebel states, contacted him in Paris. In 1784, after years of political and logistical preparation, La Fayette freighted a ship to America, with a handful of men and much needed weapons and money. He became Washington's best friend, taught some military discipline and tactics to the voluntary Rebels, and fought battles alongside them during the Independence War. He was wounded, travelled extensively through America as a guest of the new USA, and returned to France, joining his persuasion to the arguments of the ambassador Benjamin Franklin to get Louis XVI decisive help: the French fleet support to Washington's siege of Yorktown in which he got the surrender of the English General, Cornwallis.
