            On October 25, 1941, three people are found savagely murdered at the Château d’Escoire, near Périgueux. For the police, since no one could have entered or left the castle, the murderer must be the only survivor: Henri, age 27, the son of the family and its sole heir, arrogant and nonchalant, condemned by all. Despite his declarations of innocence, he spends nineteen months in jail before an acquittal that raises widespread indignation. In 1950, after spending time in exile in Latin America, Henri returns to France with the manuscript of The Wages of Fear, which he publishes under the pseudonym of Georges Arnaud, and it’s an immediate success. In the vein of his work on Bruno Salak and Pauline Dubuisson, Philippe Jaenada offers a fascinating story that attempts to resolve a seventy-five-year-old enigma.
