SPIEGEL-bestseller (31 weeks / highest ranking #1)
In his sixth case, Commissaire Dupin finds himself facing an impossible task: It’s summer and his girlfriend Claire expects him to take a vacation with her. Lying on the beach for two whole weeks is an unbearably boring prospect for Dupin. Luckily, rumors about a stolen statue promise a little bit of excitement at least. But then, a woman disappears without a trace under the hotel guests’ eyes and a female delegate at loggerheads with farmers is assaulted. Not long afterward, the discovery of a corpse shocks the coastal town. Secretly, with help from the townspeople (after all, he has to keep Claire and his colleagues from Concarneau – who have given him the strictest orders to rest – in the dark), Dupin begins to investigate. An unfathomable case unfolds amidst enchanted valleys, gorgeous beaches and a glowingly bizarre landscape of cliffs.
