Émile Legendre, collaborator of Gustave Eiffel , is found dead in the lift of the tower. Everything indicates his wife, the only one present in the cage, is the killer. It’s up to Louise Massart, daughter of one of the architects and a scandalous divorcee, to solve the crime after she’s framed for a second murder. With the help of her newfound paramour, Henriette, she’s able to solve the crime, clear her name, and live happily ever after.
For a murder mystery, there isn’t a lot of gore, and the romance is adorable. No women die, and while one of the women is sent to an asylum, she’s actually mentally ill. When she says she doesn’t want to be cured of her illness nor her sexuality, she’s sent off to be with the woman she loves!
