TopicThe action is around 1820. Auguste de Maulincour, young officer of cavalry, walking in a badly famed district of Paris, sees with far a married young woman with which it falls in love and which it hopes to conquer. But it disappears in a crasseuse house. Which is the secrecy of the unknown factor of which he will discover the name later: Clemence Desmarets, and whom it does find the evening even at Mrs. de Nucingen? Clemence denies to be gone in the badly famed district where the young man saw it. Auguste decides espionner then the house, and he discovers part of the secrecy of the young woman, at the same time as a mysterious character: Ferragus. At once, the young man escapes from little from several accidents, it is caused in duel by the marquis de Ronquerolles (perhaps on order of Ferragus). At the time of a ball, the mysterious man announces in Auguste that it must die. In front of these threats, the young man reveals with the husband of Clemence, Jules Desmarets, very rich stockbroker, the details of his discoveries. The suspicion settles then in a household up to that point peaceful and without stories. Jules surprises the small lies of his wife which terribly make it suffer and which will lead it to destroy his adored wife. The truth will burst only after the death of Clemence. The account finishes in a rather sinister way with death of Auguste, the despair of Jules and the physical decrepitude of Ferragus.
