  • Days of Twilight, Nights of Frenzy
    Days of Twilight, Nights of Frenzy (English, Hardback) Werner Schroeter, Claudia Lenssen

The circumstances of Monsieur Gallet's death all seem fake: the name the deceased was travelling under and his presumed profession, and more worryingly, his family's grief.
