The Barber

Katarzyna Bonda

Along with the last drop that flowed from the child’s vein,
HE was born. The Barber from Narew.
Meyer decides to retreat into the woods of the Podlasie region. He is looking for a momentary respire in a small village of Narew. However, life has something else in store for him. The residents of this seemingly peaceful and desolate area have just been shaken by a series of extremely bloody – one might say even theatrical – crimes.

A body is found in St. Hubert's chapel in the middle of the woods. Tymek, a several-year-old son of the local femme fatale has been killed. Everything looks as if the boy had been sacrificed as an offering. At the same time a gunshot is fired in a snow-covered forest glade surrounded by a dense thicket. Although shot from a distance, it immediately takes the life of Father Donat Giza – a keen hunter, an active member of the hunting club and an important member of the local community.

Both incidents are most gruesome and the profiler is convinced that the crimes are only a prelude to the spectacle arranged by the murderer, hailed by the media as “The Barber from Narew”.

Meyer faces an extremely challenging task. He has to draw up a psychological profile of the criminal, breaking through the thicket of connections between the residents of Narew, who are bound together by unclear interests, dark secrets, and, above all – a conspiracy of silence. Everyone here is aware of what occurred in the village. However, people prefer to remain silent.

The cycle of madness closes when another body is found. Gradually it becomes clear that there are only two roles to play in this bloody spectacle. Either you fight like a predator or you become the prey.

Katarzyna Bonda

Forty-three stabs with a knife. This is how Róża Englot died. Apart from open wounds on her body, the murderer left one more piece of evidence – a key. Incidentally, when Róża’s husband – convicted of the brutal murder – finishes serving his sentence, another tragedy strikes at the Warsaw tenement house.
In mysterious circumstances, Englot's mother-in-law falls out of a seventh floor balcony and dies instantly. Soon it turns out that the incident took place when Englot was out on furlough. However, no hard, incriminating evidence can be found.
Weronika Rudy asks Hubert Meyer to come to Warsaw and conduct an expert examination. As the profiler delves into the details of the incident, he discovers that in order to get to the bottom of it all, it may be necessary to investigate a case of disappearance which occurred 17 years earlier.
Will Meyer manage to stop the murderer before yet another person dies? What was Róża Englot not supposed to reveal? Had the object on her body been left as a warning?
When Hubert is merely a step away from uncovering the truth, the case takes a surprising turn. So far, he has been helping the victims and tracking down criminals. Now he is the prime suspect...
