Le plus beau livre sur l'amitié enfantine: un matin de chasse dans les collines, Marcel rencontre le petit paysan., Lili des Bellons. Ses vacances et sa vie entière en seront illuminées.

Un an après La Gloire de mon père, Marcel Pagnol pensait conclure ses Souvenirs d'enfance avec ce Château de ma mère (1958), deuxième volet de ce qu il considérait comme un diptyque, s'achevant sur la scène célèbre du féroce gardien effrayant la timide Augustine. Le petit Marcel., après la tendresse familiale, a découvert l'amitié avec le merveilleux Lili., sans doute le plus attachant de ses personnages. Le livre se clôt sur un épilogue mélancolique., poignante élégie au temps qui a passé. Pagnol y fait vibrer les cordes d'une gravité à laquelle il a rarement habitué ses lecteurs.

« Hé ! l'ami !
Je vis un garçon de mon âge qui me regardait sévèrement. Il ne faut pas toucher les pièges des autres. dit-il. Un piège, c'est sacré ! - Je n'allais pas le prendre, dis-je. Je voulais voir l'oiseau.
II s'approcha: c 'était un petit paysan. Il était, brun, avec un fin visage provençal, des yeux noirs et de longs cils de fille. »

They find the boy by the swimming pool, dolls floating on its surface.

Inside the house, his teacher lies dead.

But he claims to remember nothing...

June 2010. In the middle of a World Cup match, Martin Servaz receives a call from a long-lost lover. A few miles away in the town of Marsac, Classics professor Claire Diemar has been brutally murdered.

As if that weren't disturbing enough, Servaz receives a cryptic e-mail indicating that Julian Hirtmann, the most twisted of all serial killers, is back...and hitting a little too close to home. With death and chaos surrounding the small university town in Southern France where he was once a student and where his daughter is now enrolled, Servaz must act quickly.

With the help of detectives Irene Ziegler and Esperandieu, Servaz will have to uncover a world of betrayal and depravity to connect the dots between these gruesome murders that keep re-opening wounds from his past. After the success of The Frozen Dead, Bernard Minier plunges readers once again into a perfectly constructed, dark and oppressive atmosphere, driven foreward by a gripping plot, pushing the limits of the genre.
