The new thriller by Frank Tillier, author of the bestselling book The Room of the Dead.

As a result of this strange whim, David with his wife and little daughter, as well as Dofre and his young lover, must spend a whole month in the German outback, the heart of the black forest. Cold, snow, lost in a thicket chalet. The writer enthusiastically embarks on a story about a murderer-psychopath, but soon it becomes clear to everyone that something strange is happening in the chalet, and some doors were definitely not worth opening ...
