9780099507628: This Night's Foul Work (Commissaire Adamsberg)

On the outskirts of Paris, two men have been found with their throats cut. In Normandy, two stags have been killed and their hearts cut out. Meanwhile a seventy-five-year-old nurse who has murdered several of her patients has escaped from prison. Is there a connection between the three cases?

In this mystery, Commissaire Adamsberg is pitted against nemeses past and present: Ariane Lagarde, France's foremost pathologist and Adamsberg's enemy since they argued over a case twenty-three years earlier, and Louis Veyrenc, a new recruit with a grudge, who has been assigned the job of protecting the Commissaire's ex-girlfriend. As the different strands of Vargas's compelling story begin to intertwine, events move towards a gripping climax...

Shortlisted for the Duncan Lawrie International Dagger.

Review:

"Fred Vargas ... is rapidly asserting herself as one of the most impressive working crime writers" ( Metro)

"Stylish prose and strong characters" ( Financial Times)

"Irresistibly gripping, powerfully written and quite often frightening" ( The Times)

"The fascination of Fred Vargas's books is due as much to her characters as her plots... sit back and enjoy" ( Sunday Telegraph)

"If you haven't cottoned on to Vargas's brilliant Adamsberg detective stories, you're missing a treat" ( Scotland on Sunday)

Book Description:

Another riveting case for that most engaging of contemporary detectives, Jean-Baptiste Adamsberg, and another triumph from Fred Vargas, twice winner of the Duncan Lawrie International Dagger.
