In his family's somber old villa, 11-year-old Victor sees the reflection of a masked man in the mirror although the doors were locked from inside. With his detective instinct kindled, he is drawn deeper and deeper into a mystery from the past. Determined to uncover the truth about his grand-cousin's obscure death in the villa's impressive staircase, he finds a diary full of riddles, a secret passage through the house and lots of suspects who seem eager to hinder his investigation…
