"A most wonderfully wry noir murder mystery you'll not soon forget."—Durango Herald

"Garnier's sly, cynical take on life will strike a chord with readers of every age."—Publishers Weekly

"Ultimately a very dark novel, but a very impressive one."—The Complete Review

Bernard lives with his sister Yolande who hasn't left the house since 1945. Bernard is now in the final months of a terminal illness. With no longer anything to lose, he becomes reckless—and murderous.

Locally the A26 is under construction. Concrete still wet, it stands ready to serve as a discrete cemetery for lost girls.
