Read full description of the books:



Maud, vingt et un ans, cache sa beauté et ses idéaux derrière de vilaines lunettes. Elle s’engage dans une ONG et se retrouve au volant d’un quinze tonnes sur les routes de la Bosnie en guerre. Les quatre hommes qui l’accompagnent dans ce convoi sont bien différents de l’image habituelle des volontaires humanitaires. Dans ce quotidien de machisme, Maud réussira malgré tout à se placer au centre du jeu. Un à un, ses compagnons vont lui révéler les blessures secrètes de leur existence.Et la véritable nature de leur chargement. 

À travers des personnages d’une force exceptionnelle, Jean-Christophe Rufin nous offre un puissant thriller psychologique. Et l’aventure de Maud éclaire un des dilemmes les plus fondamentaux de notre époque. À l’heure où la violence s’invite jusqu’au cœur de l’Europe, y a-t-il encore une place pour la neutralité bienveillante de l’action humanitaire ? Face à la souffrance, n’est-il pas temps, désormais, de prendre les armes ?
