Synopsis: It is the summer of 1914. Golden days that look to roll on forever...who could hear the guns of August?
Deep in the Basque countryside, a young doctor signs on at a clinic. His first case is simple, the consequences complex...for he meets a young woman, Katya, with whom he falls deeply in love.
Trevanian is the author of THE EIGER SANCTION, SHIBUMI and THE MAIN, all best sellers that receive continuing acclaim.
"Trevanian is in a class by himself...beyond any doubt superior." (John Barkham Reviews)
From the Inside Flap:
In the golden summer of 1914, Jean-Marc Montjean, recently graduated from medical school, comes to the small French village of Salies to assist the village physician. His first assignment is to treat the brother of a beautiful woman named Katya Treville. As he and her family become friendly, he realizes they are haunted by an old, dark secret . . . but he can't help falling deeply in love with Katya.
Jean-Marc is warned by Katya's brother that she is delicate and that he should curb his attentions, but he is young, hopeful, and in love . . . and he is certain that Katya returns his affections. When Jean-Marc learns that the Trevilles are planning to leave the village forever, he insists on a final meeting with Katya. That meeting and the events that follow turn what was an idyllic romance into an unending nightmare. Katya's secret is revealed in a thrilling tale that is part love story and part psychological thriller, and the chilling climax will stay with the reader long after the last page is turned.
