Two American couples living in France stumble onto a murderous conspiracy nearly five centuries old in Frank Frost’s new thriller, “The Grottos of Barigoule: A Novel” (published by Archway Publishing).

While living in a Provençal village in the hills near Avignon, the couples learn of a massacre in their village 450 years ago. They decide to investigate the secret background of this crime, so improbable that not even the police believe the evidence. Those who try to aid them are viciously murdered and only the assistance of a maverick French detective helps them end a reign of terror.

Examining “ancient religious prejudice and superstition and their modern counterparts,” Frost joins a tradition of creating “theories in modern fiction about old religious cults, their treasures, their secret crimes.”
