Overview

It’s the middle of a long hot summer on the French Mediterranean shore. The town is full of tourists and the at the Perpignan police headquarters, Sebag and Molino, two tired cops who are being slowly devoured by dull routine and family worries, deal with the day’s misdemeanors and petty complaints without a trace of enthusiasm. But out of the blue a young Dutch woman is brutally murdered on a beach at Argelès, and another disappears without a trace in the alleys of the city. A serial killer obsessed with Dutch women? Maybe. The media goes wild. Gilles Sebag finds himself thrust into the middle of a diabolical game. If he intends to salvage anything. He will have to put aside his domestic cares, forget his suspicions about his wife’s faithfulness, ignore his heart murmur, and get over his existential angst. He waits joylessly, patiently, and lets himself go. The stone house may end up being his grave. Who’s doing what, who’s chasing who?

Praise

"Philippe Georget has us hooked and he will not let us go, masterfully commanding his narrative to its final denouement." —Pol’Art Noir

"The great richness of this debut novel lies especially with its context and its characters…It is hard to believe how well [Philippe Georget] seems to know the region of Catalonia. Wander through it as a reader, in any case, solely for the sake of pleasure." —Hannibal Le Lecteur

"The author’s writing style is supple and nimble, and he sets into motion an inexhaustible intrigue." —Isabelle Ollivier-Queau

"The principal character of Georget’s novel is Catalonia, a region seldom used in noir fiction. Far from hyper-urban cities…the countryside, brutalized by heat, the scents of the Mediterranean and of Spain, and the cosmopolitanism of Perpignan are the massive figures who are imbued little by little, through Georget’s narrative, with a new mythology." —Obiwi Magazine
