Chanteloube Woods. The body of Antoine Noiret, eminent professor in oncology, is found in the Mare au Diable. Ritual signs found around the pond suggest that the victim was sacrificed during a Sabbath, a witchcraft ceremony. True human sacrifice or tragic overflow of a cultural event organized by local artists? For Basile Tissier, policeman in Bourges sent on the investigation as an observer, the investigations begin in the heart of the Berry countryside, where he grew up and which he had fled. A countryside where the rational competes with the irrational of magnetizers, wizards, sorcerers, and where George Sand has left her lasting mark. Fortunately, he can count on the help and the clairvoyance of Solène Durel, a country doctor who knows the local people as well as... The victim.
