Scared to Death In the Shadow of the Beast by Virginie Vanholme


Scared to Death In the Shadow of the Beast by Virginie Vanholme

Robin is spending the holidays at his grandmother's with Max, and the two boys are gearing up for a quiet time. But there is very little peace to be found in Saint-Tournon: A mysterious beast is killing sheep, leaving no clue as to its nature, and local imagination is running wild. What is truly happening? Who is the old crone who lives alone with her goats, and why is she so at odds with the fire-and-brimstone priest? Is the Devil really hiding in the woods? Max and Robin will have to investigate.
