Praise

“Adamsberg is a terrific creation and his team of misfits a joy to watch in action.”
—Peter Robinson, New York Times bestselling author of the Inspector Banks series

“Vargas writes with the startling imagery and absurdist wit of a latter-day Anouilh, about fey characters who live in a wonderful bohemian world that never was but should have been.”
The New York Times Book Review 

“Real vintage Vargas: playful, thought-provoking, a total delight. And beautifully translated. Adamsberg is one of my favourite detectives.”
—Ann Cleeves, author of the Shetland Island Mysteries

“Fred Vargas’ books are murder mysteries, yes — cunning, corkscrew murder mysteries — but so much else besides: delicate comedies, engrossing tours of French geography and history, fascinating excursions into folklore and myth.”
—A. J. Finn, #1 New York Times bestselling author
 
 “It’s a full, rich and strange plate.”
Seattle Times
 
“[A] high degree of intelligence, sophistication and perversity informs [Vargas’] fiction…I continue to be delighted by the workings of [her] imagination. It’s a tangled web she weaves, and a hard one to escape.”
—The Washington Post
