July 1909: in Carcassonne a sixteen-year-old girl is given a book by her father which he claims contains the secret of the true Grail. Although Alais cannot understand the strange words and symbols, she knows that her destiny lies in keeping the secret of the labyrinth safe. July 2005: Alice Tanner stumbles upon two skeletons during an archaeological dig in the mountains outside Carcassonne. Inside the hidden tomb, she experiences an overwhelming sense of malevolence, as well as a creeping realisation that she can somehow understand the mysterious ancient words carved into the rock. Too late Alice realises she's set in motion a terrifying sequence of events.

Corre el año 1928. Freddie Watson todavía lamenta la pérdida de su hermano, el cual falleció en la Gran Guerra. Mientras Freddie se adentra con su coche entre las montañas de los Pirineos franceses, sufre un accidente provocado por una fuerte tormenta de nieve. Freddie se refugia en un cercano pueblo abandonado, donde se encuentra con una hermosa y cautivadora mujer. Se pasan toda la noche charlando animadamente de amor, de pérdidas y de la guerra. Pero cuando amanece, Fabrissa ha desaparecido y Freddie se da cuenta de que porta una llave que abre un antiguo misterio que le arrastrará a la profundidad de las montañas, a una cueva en la que ese misterio ha permanecido oculto durante más de 700 años. Las tierras misteriosas y secretas que se extienden junto a la frontera de Francia y España no sólo sirven como telón de fondo de la novela, también han visto mucho derramamiento de sangre a lo largo de miles de años, son una parte del mundo en la que la prehistoria, la mitología y la historia se funden en la suerte de escenario vacío inspirador de *Los fantasmas del invierno*. Kate Mosse nos brinda además una historia de amor atmosférica y fascinante, con un tono de misterio, de especulación sobrenatural, de un tiempo fuera del tiempo. *Los fantasmas del invierno* se sitúa en esa tradición de escalofriantes historias de fantasmas para leer en las oscuras y frías noches de invierno.
