Eight months after Malotru's alleged death at the hands of Russian separatists, Le Figaro publishes an article which claims the CIA murdered him with the consent of the DGSE. JJA now reigns as director of the Légendes office following Marie-Jeanne's departure from the field. She now works under a fictitious identity, responsible for the security of a large hotel in Cairo. The news about Malotru is causing confusion among DGSE agents and undercover operatives including Mille Sabords, a Légendes clandestine in Amman. JJA had used Milles Sabord to further his plan for Malotru’s disappearance. For his part, the young computer whiz César ("Pacemaker") continues his mission within the Russian intelligence service, the FSB. He learns of Malotru's death and, like other undercover agents, panics. Seeking to leave Russia, he is preparing for a trip to Riga, but is intercepted by the Russian services.

Malotru wakes up in a military hospital near Moscow. One of the FSB executives, Karlov, announces to him that he has been naturalised Russian, and that he now bears the name of Pavel Lebedev. He must cooperate with the Russian intelligence services by providing them with information on the methods of the DGSE. Meanwhile, Marie-Jeanne is sent to the desert under the protection of the Egyptian security services, in order to meet the head of the Bedouin tribe Tarabin for a conference which will take place soon in the hotel for which she directs security. In Paris, the Légendes office fears for Pacemaker, who has not been found since he was picked up at the airport. JJA announces to Ellenstein and Sisteron that Malotru is probably alive. He admits to them his strategy, which was to encourage the Russians to intervene; if successful, it would make it possible to have a new agent implanted at the heart of the Russian services. Mille Sabords, who plays the role of an arms dealer in the Middle East, travels to Yemen to chat with a rebel leader who asks him to sell him an Israeli-made computer virus. He is interrogated and threatened on his return to Saudi Arabia by a representative of the Saudi services. The situation was expected and Mille Sabords pretends to give in by agreeing to become their informant. In Russia, Malotru, released from the hospital, returns to see his former Russian companion Samara. She tells him that a Frenchman had warned her that he would return.

Malotru is integrated into a Russian think tank which is actually a facade of the FSB. Samara explains that a Frenchman came to see her to ask her to suggest that he goes jogging in a city park. Malotru made eye contact there with a DGSE agent, Pépé. He indirectly receives an encrypted message from JJA, which offers him to work as an underground smuggler in Russia. Malotru refuses, considering that he does not have to help the DGSE after it tried to eliminate him. In Cairo, Marie-Jeanne agrees to recruit the son of the chief of the Tarabin tribe within her hotel. Sisteron, who has been named Number 2 of the Légendes office, goes to Cairo without notifying JJA, to visit Marie-Jeanne and find out if it was she who leaked the information about Malotru at Le Figaro. The IT department of the DGSE succeeds in finding the location of César: he left Russia and was transported to Phnom Penh, Cambodia, where he must now supervise for two years a team of hackers who work for Russia. For his part, JJA begins to hear voices in Russian in his sleep, and sinks into paranoia towards the Russians.

In Russia, Malotru decides to discreetly send his analysis to the DGSE about Mikhail Karlov, an FSB executive. He proposed to the DGSE to turn his exploits against him in order to turn him. If the FSB hierarchy learns that he and Pacemaker (César) are French undercover operatives introduced into the FSB apparatus through his negligence, he would be disgraced and killed. To avoid this, he would surely agree to be recruited. The solution is validated by the DGSE hierarchy, but it would involve exfiltrating Pacemaker; however, the information he communicates about Russia's cyber advances is too precious. In Phnom Penh, Pacemaker is working on the cyber tools of the FSB. Its mission is to infiltrate the computer network of Jusos, the "youth" branch of the German socialist party. In Cairo, Marie-Jeanne welcomes the son of the chief of the Tarabin tribe for an internship of a few months in her hotel. She does not know that the individual works for Daesh. She discovers microphones in her hotel room, and summons the Egyptian intelligence services, believing they are theirs. Jonas joins her at the hotel to investigate Daesh and meet the Bedouin sheikh.

Marina travels to Jordan to meet Mille Sabords and entrust her with equipment that measures the uranium enrichment rate. The clandestine meets the Saudi Mohammed Al Taouf and makes him believe that Yusuf Ahmed, the Iranian warlord, ordered him 50 in order to rig the inspectors who are investigating the supposed Iranian nuclear disarmament. At the plant, Ponte, worried about JJA's paranoia and fearing that it would prevent him from making good decisions, asked Liz Bernstein to conduct a security investigation on him. JJA, who was in Moscow in the 1990s on behalf of the DGSE, had been tortured by the FSB and had been forced to work for Karlov. The latter had asked him to help them capture a few targets, symbolized by an increasingly small Russian doll, representing each president of the United States, from Clinton to Kennedy. JJA had managed to escape from Russia and had since been haunted by Russian voices in his head. Ponte agrees to JJA for the recruitment of Karlov, nicknamed "Kennedy" in reference to the last matryoshka that JJA would have had to return to Karlov in the 1990s if he had completed his mission for the FSB. JJA can thus heal and put an end to its voices.
