Description

From a master of suspense comes this classic tale of lust and revenge set in the French countryside.
 Beautiful newcomer, Elle, has turned the head of every man in the village. But it’s Fiorimond, the local mechanic, who wants her more.
After just one date she moves in with him and his family. As Fiorimond starts to wonder if he’s doing the right thing, he has no idea that Elle is planning to avenge a terrible crime from the past…
Set in the 1970s, this tale of obsession is a classic of French suspense from the author of A Very Long Engagement.
