He is forced to seek shelter in a boarding house in the nearby village of Axat.There he meets another guest in the tiny hotel, a pale and beautiful young woman called Marie. As the storm rages outside, she explains how the region was ripped apart by wars of religion in the 14th century. She tells how, one terrible night in March 1328, all the inhabitants of Axat were forced to flee from the soldiers into the mountains. The villagers took refuge in a cave, but when the fighting was over, no one came back. Their bodies were never found. Axat itself became a ghost town.When Freddie wakes the following morning, Marie has gone. Worse still, his car will take several days to repair and he has to stay at the boarding house for a few days more. To pass the time, he explores the mountains. Then he realises it is almost 600 years to the day since the villagers disappeared. He decides to go and look for the cave himself. Perhaps, he thinks, he might even find Marie?

Cathars, Templars and bloodshed - uncover the mysteries of the Languedoc behind the bestselling novelImagine a land that has seen empires rise and fall. A place where people have killed for power and for religion, and a place where people have died to keep those secrets and beliefs. This is the Languedoc, and this is the book that will share the secrets of this incredible land with you.LABYRINTH told the story of Carcassonne and the search, across centuries, for the grail that people have long rumoured was taken to this place by the Templars fleeing the holy land. Building on Kate Mosse's meticulous research for her bestselling novel, Greg Mosse now shows how the region was home to the Cathars, who clung to this dramatic mountain landscape in stone fortresses and battled against siege, inquisition and massacre to keep their faith, and keep some much older secrets.An astonishing journey through history and across continents, SECRETS OF THE LABYRINTH will take you from the mountains of the Pyrenees, behind the fortified walls of Carcassonne and Montsegur, into the sacred cathedrals of Chartres and St Nazaire, and further out into the Holy Land and the ancient civilisations of Egypt.
