HAUNTING… CHILLING… DISTURBING
The Man from Carcassonne is dark psychological fiction at its best, combining charismatic characters with atmospheric settings, revealing the secret world of a psychopath.
Set in the cities of Carcassonne, Toulouse and Paris, the story follows the life of fractured child Hugo as he becomes a man; his psyche twisted by events over which he has little control. With echoes of Patrick Süskind's Perfume, this dark novel is far more than the usual multiple-murder thriller. Duval writes with unashamed frankness about the depravity of the human condition, refusing to be silenced and drawing the reader into a desperate world where justice is everything, no matter what the price.
The Man from Carcassonne will appeal to readers interested not only in the act of murder and the psychopath that commits it, but in the often-untold tale of human frailty that lies beneath. Volume two to follow.
