The Work

Four names on a list. Four unknown victims. How to identify them and break the silence?
Sergeant Maxime Monceau, a specialist in non-verbal speech, has been assigned to investigate a mysterious case that puts the Police Investigation Unit at a dead end. A strange man has turned himself in to the station, accusing himself of murder.
The problem is that, apart from a single sentence that he chant over and over again, the stranger remains totally silent about his identity and the reasons that led him to commit murder.
The clock is ticking and, without evidence or victims, this suspect could be set free and carry on with his murderous madness.
A nameless killer appears out of nowhere, invisible victims and only one lead to hold on to: a list.
