‘A sombre novel about the horrific destiny of a girl adrift.’ Direct Matin newspaper ‘Visceral. Like the stab of a knife.’ Les lectures de Bibliophile

One dark Paris night a young woman waits at the Panthéon monument, gripping a bag in her hand. She is Anna-Marie Caravelle, the dreaded redhead, the degenerate, the freak.

This is the story of Anna-Marie Caravelle. What is she doing there, on her knees in the middle of Paris that night? And what is in that bag that she presses to her chest as though her life depended on it?
