Read full description of the books:
Richard, jeune étudiant de dix-sept ans, est radié de l’université de Cambridge pour des raisons difficiles à avouer. C’est donc dans la demeure familiale qu’il décide de passer les fêtes de Noël, même s’il est loin d’être accueilli comme le fils prodigue. Sa mère et sa sœur n’ont qu’une seule envie, le voir disparaître. Une ambiance malsaine règne dans la maison, accentuée par le mystère qui entoure la mort du père survenue quelques mois auparavant. À cette atmosphère lugubre viennent s’ajouter des meurtres d’animaux et des lettres anonymes obscènes qui créent un climat de suspicion dans le village. Avec beaucoup de naïveté, Richard commence à mener une enquête et à consigner tous les événements dans son journal, sans se rendre compte qu’il attise les passions et que l’étau se resserre inexorablement autour de lui.
