We will be launching a NEW online catalogue on April 6th. To accommodate this and other changes, the Library will be closed from March 30th to April 5th. During the closure, this website will not be available and members will not be able to place holds or renew items. Your saved lists and shelf information will be available in the new catalogue. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your patience.
When a dead woman is found floating in the river, Chief of Police Bruno Courrèges is on the case. The discovery of sinister markings and black candles near the body leads him to question whether there was something occult involved in the woman's death. At the same time, Bruno is dealing with a troubling real estate proposal in the region, a suspicious death made to look accidental, and the return of a politically controversial elderly countess, with everything leading to a climatic showdown at the place the locals call the Devil's Cave.
