Le piège Américain, or The American Trap as it is titled in English, is set during the years of the Cold War in the mid-1960s and features an international cast of actors. Much of the world is still reeling from the assassination of JFK – but has yet to lose Bobby Kennedy. In the midst of all this, a reluctant hero by the name of Lucien Rivard becomes enmeshed in a web of global political intrigue and corruption. The United States, Russia and France are embroiled in a strategic battle over Third World natural resources. To keep the upper hand, each of their secret services has joined forces with various organized crime factions. Lucien is the go-between, travelling to the casinos of Havana, the night clubs of Dallas, the seedy heroin labs of Marseille, the tropical jungles of Indonesia and the urban jungles of New Orleans and Montreal. As tensions heat up, he becomes a secret weapon for a black ops organization over which he has no control – and an unwitting protagonist as a tragic chain of events begins to unfold before his very eyes.
