In the summer of 2006, Emma Price watched helplessly as her six-year-old son's red coat was fished out of the River Ouse. It was the tragic story of the year - a little boy, Aiden, wandered away from school during a terrible flood, fell into the river, and drowned. His body was never recovered. Ten years later, Emma has finally rediscovered the joy in life. She's married, pregnant, and in control again... ... until Aiden returns. Too traumatized to speak, he raises endless questions and answers none. Only his body tells the story of his decade-long disappearance. The historic broken bones and injuries cast a mere glimpse into the horrors Aiden has experienced. Aiden never drowned. Aiden was taken. As Emma attempts to reconnect with her now teenage son, she must unmask the monster who took him away from her. But who, in their tiny village, could be capable of such a crime? It's Aiden who has the answers, but he cannot tell the unspeakable. This dark and disturbing psychological novel will appeal to fans of The Widow and The Butterfly Garden.

Un grande mistero: dal tempio di Gerusalemme ai cavalieri templari L’abbazia di Rennes-le-Château, nel sud della Francia, è famosa nel mondo per una misteriosa leggenda (al punto da divenire oggetto di varie serie televisive in Gran Bretagna): si racconta che l’abate Saunière vi abbia trovato, presso il vecchio altare, un tesoro d’inestimabile valore, che riuscì a mantenere segreto e con il quale poté fronteggiare spese ingenti che apparivano inspiegabili. Questo saggio indaga sia la storia del piccolo villaggio e dell’abbazia, sia l’insieme delle testimonianze che collegano il tesoro al tempio di Gerusalemme e Saunière ai Cavalieri Templari, facendo giustizia dei tanti miti e delle numerose leggende sorte intorno a questo mistero. Un viaggio alla ricerca di una verità basata sull'analisi razionale delle prove storiche, che non per questo è meno affascinante.
