Saint Girons. Djalla-Maria Longa publishes her new novel
Faithful readers of Djalla-Maria will find one who devotes a lot of time to writing. An unimaginable dream for this young woman, self-taught, who never went to school because she comes from a hippie family. She has already published nine books, including her bestseller “My wild childhood”.
His new novel “Dernier vol”, published by Roc du ker, is a plot against a police background that takes place in the very heart of the Couserans mountains. The story of three men, three people from Toulouse who are opposed to everything, but who have known each other since childhood. One forged a shell by playing his vile humor, the other is married, the father of two children and seems to be succeeding in everything in life. As for the third, he does not speak, or rarely, if ever, reveals himself. They often meet in Couserans to practice their shared passion: paragliding. They think they know each other well until the day paraglider Sarah disappears at the top of the Col de Porta. We find his car, his papers, his money, his personal belongings, but not his paraglider. But who is Sarah, the young woman who just disappeared?
Not long after, the most reserved of the three friends, nicknamed “Intro”, falls in mid-flight, like a stone in the air. His body could not be found despite all the searches that made it possible to locate his mangled paraglider. Did he survive his fall? The investigation quickly shifts to a suspicious lead and the three friends face the facts: they don’t know each other as well as they claim. But who are they really?
