breathtaking thriller, by Maxime Chattam a bestselling and internationally acclaimed author !

A worrisome shadow is prowling around the forests of Oregon… First, a man is found dead with an horror-struck expression on his face. Meanwhile, women vanish in the dead of the night, as their spouses are asleep. No sign of breaking and entering either… Then, an odd epidemic outbreak spreads: lethally poisonous spiders invade the houses in Portland. The number of victims grows and so does the hysteria. What if a single person was behind all this? What if he wasn’t human? Joshua Brolin and Annabel O’Donnel decide to get involved in the investigation. The former FBI profiler and the detective from New York will get tangled in the web and face the unimaginable: a new generation of killers….

A poet and an agitator, a great seducer in spite of his “cabbage head” as he fancied calling it, Gainsbourg is a flamboyant character who has spanned the French art scene with his influence. Today, he has become the icon of an era. An enthralling biography splendidly enhanced by the talent of the drawer, Alexis Chabert.
