																Tristan Saule, Mathilde ne dit rien

A gripping social thriller, an atypical female protagonist and events that play out over seven days, like an implacable countdown.

With the winter rent break about to end, Mathilde discovers that her neighbours are facing expulsion. Their legal recourse was futile. Mathilde hasn’t always been a social worker. Mathilde has dark secrets deep inside her. Without saying a word, Mathilde takes matters into her own hands.

In this unnerving social thriller, the first in the Chroniques de la place carrée series, suspense and tension blur the lines of the portrait of a broken woman who faces her final choice: fight or disappear.
