Les Âmes troubles - Prix du premier roman du festival de Beaune 2015
Comme si le diable avait du temps à perdre.
A disillusioned cop, hunted by an assassin who is trying to drive him crazy by committing murder in every place he just left. A ruthless chase.
“It was a strange thing to run into him here, in this hospital room. He wasn’t the type to show his face or look for publicity.

He just wanted to talk, he said.
As if the devil had time to waste.”
