In December 2008, in a valley deep in the Great Pyrenees, the employees of a hydroelectric plant discover, on their way into work, the headless corpse of a horse, suspended on the frozen face of a cliff.
On the same day, a young psychiatrist starts her first job at a secure psychiatric facility overlooking the valley.
Captain Servaz, a 40-year-old hypochondriac who always goes with his gut, is in charge of the investigation, the strangest of his career to date. Why kill a horse at such a high altitude of 2000m? Is this the beginning of a nightmare for the Captain?
An oppressive atmosphere, a suspenseful plotline, a relentless foray into our deepest, darkest fears: this debut novel is a revelation!
