Villers is an Obscure City built around its public library. Every generation, it knows a series of murders, and the initials of the victims always spell out the French word “Livre” (book) 1). Benoît Peeters has written a novel about those crimes, transposing the action to our world.

The crest of the city is a five-pointed star 2), and we do not know exactly where it is located. There are several town of that name in France and Belgium on our side.
