"Oikos" by Raphaël Duhamel
A secluded residence on an unnamed island, arid and stifling with hints of greenery. 16-year old Chloe has lived her entire life between the walls of her spacious home. Jonas, her father and a retired doctor, enforces this strict regimen to protect his daughter from the corrupting outside world and its (seemingly) dangerous locals, haunted by the death of Chloe’s mother, Ariadne. When the gardener, Mark, is savagely murdered on the night of Chloe’s birthday, and his 16-year old son is brought in to replace him, Chloe’s life is irreversibly changed.
