June 2010. In the middle of a World Cup match, Martin Servaz receives a call from a long-lost lover. A dozen kilometers away in the town of Marsac, Classics professor Claire Diemar has been brutally assassinated and a dog-breeder eaten alive by his own animals.
And what of the mysterious e-mail indicating that that Julian Hirtmann, the most twisted of all serial killers is back…?
Why are death and violence looming over a small university town in Southwestern France where Servaz was a student in his youth and where his daughter is now studying?
With the help of Irene Ziegler and Esperandieu, Servaz will uncover the existence of a very vengeful group and reopen painful wounds from his past. He will learn of betrayal and of depravity and will not walk away unharmed.
After the resounding success of Iced, Bernard Minier plunges readers once again into a perfectly constructed dark and oppressive atmosphere, driven by a gripping plot, pushing the limits of the genre.
