That turns out to be Fleurette , a young girl raised by Maman Leo. Remy falls in love with Fleurette, but then discovers that she is his biological sister, and commits suicide.
The Colonel suprisingly helps Fleurette save her true love, young Maurice , who was framed by the Black Coats and was about to be sent to the gallows. Fleurette and Maurice leave France, never to return. In a parallel plot, the Colonel thwarts a scheme by the members of the High Council to kill him and steal his treasure. The story begins in , and ends in The so-called "Companions of the Treasure" are none other than the members of the High Council more intent than ever on killing the Colonel and stealing his treasure.
In this book, the Colonel is apparently murdered by his own son, Count Julian , who then goes on to impersonate him, like Moriarty 's younger brother impersonates the older Professor in John Gardner 's series. The death scene seen in Volume 1 was therefore only an elaborate charade staged by Julian, who has become the "new" Colonel, and appears to return from the dead in the guise of the old Colonel thereafter.
But the Colonel somehow reaches from beyond the grave and uses architect Vincent Carpentier and Reynier , Julian's son and his grand-son, to set a deadly trap in motion that kills virtually all of the conspirators, except for Reynier and his girl-friend Irene Carpentier. The Clare fortune is now in the hands of Clotilde , who has been masquerading as the aerialist Lirette.
Meanwhile, the deadly Cadet Gang , led by Cadet L'Amour , has stepped into the vacuum created by the destruction of the High Council in the previous volume, and now seeks the Treasure of the Black Coats. But Cadet L'Amour is thwarted by a Colonel who has once again mysteriously returned from the grave whether this Colonel is the real Colonel, Julian,or Reynier is unclear , and in the end Cadet dies. A few notes about the Habits Noirs' code words: "Il fait jour" It's daylight means to commit a crime -- "Fera-t-il jour demain?

The ritual reply is "It will be daylight from midnight to noon if it's the will of the father. Finally, "payer la loi" pay the Law means to always frame an innocent for the crime to be committed. By its methods, its themes and its characters, Les Habits Noirs was the precursor of today's conspiracy and organized crime novels. Furthermore, his heroes -- from Gregory Temple, the first "detective" in modern fiction, to Remy d'Arx, the investigative magistrate -- are also the first modern heroes of their kind. Gaboriau then went on to create his own Lecoq , which in turn influenced Conan Doyle's creation of Sherlock Holmes.
