Episode 10: Murder at Langon

Our 10th episode takes us to a small town South of Bordeaux called Langon. In 1907, Jean-Théodore Monget, an insurance company employee with a quiet life and a family, disappears without a trace whilst running an errand for his employer. The police considers all possibilities: suicide, voluntary disappearance, accident. Or is it murder?
