Product description

"Do you think it's possible to live again, Monsieur? ...I mean ...is it possible to die and then ...live again in someone else?" You're no longer in the police, but when an old friend asks you to look after his wife as a favour, how can you refuse? She'sbeen behaving strangely, mysteriously - but she's dazzling. And so Flavieres begins to scour the streets of Paris in search of an answer - in search of a woman who belongs to no one, not even to herself. Soon intrigue is replaced by obsession, and dreams by nightmares, as the boundaries between the living and the dead begin to blur. This is the story of a desperate man. A man who ended up compromising his own morality beyond all measure, while the Second World War raged outside his front door. A man tormented by his search for the truth, and ultimately destroyed by a dark, terrible secret.
