Sibiu, Romania. 1947. A boy’s dead body is discovered in the chimney of an abandoned farmhouse. Sixty years later, more bodies are discovered in the same place. Who did it then? Who is doing it now? Can it be the same killer, or is it another, inspired by the first? A backpacker is missing. Impressed by Darya’s past exploits, the owner of the missing boy’s hostel tasks Darya to look for him. After some digging, Darya leads the police to an old farmhouse. They find the backpacker’s two-week-old dead body wedged inside the chimney. Along with two others. The locals think it is the devil’s work. Darya knows not to trust local superstitions, of which there are many. But the crime is so diabolical, so unique, it begs the question: who could be doing this? Darya needs to find out urgently before she is forced to leave Sibiu. And as she races to solve the mystery, she has to make sure she doesn’t let new friendships or the town’s insidious secrets get in her way.
