Bélhazar
Jérôme Chantreau

In 2013, Jérôme Chantreau, who was teaching high school French and Latin at the time, learned that a former pupil had died at age 18 while being arrested in mysterious circumstances. Devastated by the tragedy and by the memory of an exceptionally intelligent and sensitive young man, Jérôme Chantreau spent three years investigating the murky circumstances of his death. He paints the portrait of a rare and sublime being who was able to bring out the best in everyone he met while also embodying the power of imagination and artistic creation. An extraordinary visual artist from a very young age, the teen with the look of a young Rimbaud left a scavenger hunt worthy of Alice in Wonderland behind him.

This novel investigates the mysterious conditions of the death of Bélhazar, a radiant adolescent destined for an extraordinary life. Jérôme Chantreau leads us into the fascinating world of a young man who was exceptional in many ways, from his prophetic personality and charisma to the incredible treasure hunt he came up with and left behind as his legacy.
