“1989. At the request of a police officer, a young archivist carries out researches in newspapers published at the end of the sixties. He has to find press articles on the disappearance of a young woman who was found dead and abandoned in the city’s sewers.
The following year, the police officer who had initiated the investigation disappears without a trace. He reappears fourteen years later, haunted, wandering through the city center.
During all this time, dozens of people from different ethnic groups, sizes and genders died violently. They all have one thing in common: they are missing the last phalanx on their right little finger.
The triad of the killer: a victim, a tormentor and a savior. An archivist, Eddy; a policeman, Oissel and a cleaner… Red and black ants fighting a fierce battle and a chessboard filled with small vials. A mother, a father and a son. A closed door from which no one will come out unscathed.”
Christian Blanchard is the author of several dark novels and thrillers published by Belfond (Iboga, La mer qui prend l’homme, Seul avec la nuit, Angkar). The themes addressed in his novels have their origins in social realities and are centered on manipulation, dependence and human conditioning.
