Midsummer’s Day

Published by Diogenes as Johannistag
Original Title: Johannistag

After a teacher is suspended over an affair with one of his pupils, he retreats to a French village. It seems an idyllic setting, but appearances can be deceiving. A building project opens up ancient graves, and before the outsider knows what's hit him, he's embroiled in the intrigue. A web of crimes from long-gone days and very-much-alive intrigue soon unfurls.
