Description

From a master of suspense comes this classic tale of lust and revenge set in the French countryside.
Car mechanic Fiorimond is irresistibly drawn to the beautiful, provocative Elle, a recent arrival in his sleepy Provence village. Their relationship develops quickly, but even as they make plans to marry, Fiorimond doesn’t know what to make of his bride-to-be: is she an enigma or simply vacuous?
In fact, the troubled Elle is on a mission to exact revenge on Fiorimond’s family for a crime committed decades earlier, with a plan that will ultimately destroy all their lives, including hers…
Set in the 1970s, and available in English again for the first time in decades, this is a true classic of French suspense.
