The Monsters of Waldighoffen

Version française

In the peaceful Alsatian village of Waldighoffen, in Haut-Sundgau, France, nestled between the Jura mountains and the plains of the Rhine river, all is not as it seems at one family estate. Two men named Antoine were born there, one was the father, the other the son. Both had piercing blue eyes that seemed to penetrate deep into the soul.

Near the Grosguth family’s large inn, unthinkable crimes occurred. The father was suspected of horrific murders. Years later, the son was arrested for other crimes.

The entire region was stunned. Family secrets, strange deaths: at Waldighoffen people trembled in fear of these evil men.

Once again, talented novelist Viviane Janouin-Benanti draws us into a gripping true story with an intriguing narrative full of surprises.
