Summary
"The bestselling French phenomenon, winner of the Prix Lion Noir, now available in English for the first time... When Madame Préau returns to her home outside Paris after a long convalescence, she immediately notices that much has changed. The neighborhood has fallen into disrepair, and now, instead of a beautiful garden next door there is a new house. Madame Préau finds that she can see directly into her new neighbors' windows. And Madame Préau quickly feels that something isn't right. Her neighbors have two perfectly healthy children who play in the yard after school. But there is also third child: a young boy who looks malnourished and abused, and tosses small stones at her window in an apparent call for help. The family denies his existence. But is the little boy real, or merely a hallucination of a lonely, mentally unstable old woman cut off from her own beloved grandson? When the police refuse to listen to her reports, Madame Préau decides to take matters into her own hands. She's determined to help the little boy, and she'll use any means necessary to make sure he's safe... "--

Summary
When the elderly Madame Preau returns to her own house after several years spent in a convalescent home, she immediately notices that the neighbourhood has changed. A new family has moved in next door and, from her window, she watches their three children playing in the garden after school. Two of the children seem perfectly healthy, but Madame Preau is struck by the third child, who seems listless and stands apart from the others. When she reports this to social services, they refuse to believe her. Cut off some years ago from her own grandson, she begins a mission to help this boy, even when those around her start to fear for her sanity.
