On Mount Valgoj civilization never arrived. Death did. Three families live there and there is only one road. Despite hating each other, Mrs. Morel cannot ignore that for many days no one travels that road any longer. Without telling anyone, she goes to check. At the Verdanas’ home a massacre was carried out. The whole family is at the table, but they are all dead, their throats cut. The fury has even hit the farm animals. She has too much to hide to call the police, it is best to ignore it, pretend not to know. But death is not gone, it’s still there, and that is only the prelude to an endless nightmare. If she wants to save his children, Mrs. Morel will have to fight again; a relentless battle against an implacable enemy, who was willing to do anything to destroy them.
