FROM THE BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF THE ADVERSARY

Little Nicolas is a delicate, timid schoolboy, with an excitable, if morbid imagination - the child of an overbearing father. So, two weeks away on the class trip is already enough to fill him with dread. But when a child goes missing, Nicolas' mind turns to gruesome possibilities, impelling him to take up the role of detective - and edge closer to a truth more shocking than Nicolas' worst fears.

Translated by Linda Coverdale
