9780099552239: An Uncertain Place (Commissaire Adamsberg)

Three-times winner of the CWA International Dagger for Crime Fiction

Commissaire Adamsberg has left Paris for a police conference in London, accompanied by anglophile Commandant Danglard and Estalere, a young sergeant. The city offers a welcome change of scenery until a gruesome discovery is made - just outside the gates of Highgate Cemetery a pile of shoes, all containing severed feet, is found.

Returning to Paris, the three men are then confronted with the violent killing and dismemberment of a wealthy, elderly man. Both the dead man's son and gardener have motives for murder, but soon another candidate for the killing emerges. As Adamsberg investigates the links between these two unsettling crimes, he puts himself at terrible risk.

Review:

"Frederique Vargas['s]...imaginative characters put most of America's top-rated crime writers to shame" (Observer)

"Wonderfully intricate and gothic" (Jane Jakeman Independent)

"An Uncertain Place is full of wit and invention, with a plot that satisfies both intellect and emotion" (Annabella Bankhouse Times Literary Supplement)

"As ever, Vargas's characters inhabit a world where reason and myth collide, and the result is a thrilling read" (Joan Smith Sunday Times)

Book Description:

Severed feet are found outside Highgate Cemetery; a violent murder is committed in Paris - can Commissaire Adamsberg unravel the links between these two cases?
