Stéphanie Benson
Un singe sur le dos
A Monkey on your Back

This is the story of Olivier and Maya, a modern-day Hansel and Gretel, each abandoned in the wood of drug dependence. The house of the ogre/psychopath is made of heroin; there is no way out. Only one man will succeed in gaining access: a trustworthy woodcutter/police superintendent who single-handedly draws himself up to fight against the drug ghosts and tries to protect these children who have strayed. For the ogre has already eaten...seven little junkies.

With the talent she revealed in her first book A Bat in the Attic, Stephanie Benson develops in this second novel - a realist tale of bereavement and revolt - her powerful and moving vision of the thriller.
