How do you solve a murder without a body? A brilliant Three Evangelists novel from France's utterly original bestselling crime writer
Fred Vargas was born in Paris in 1957. A historian and archaeologist by profession, she is now a bestselling novelist. Her books have sold over 10 million copies worldwide and have been translated into 45 languages.
One of today's few truly original writers of crime fiction:
disturbing, unruly, droll and poetic * The Times *
Few contemporary crime thrillers can match Vargas's soaring imaginative flights -- Joan Smith * Sunday Times *
This is wonderful, quirky stuff, a world away from formulaic crime fiction -- Andrew Taylor * Spectator *
Vargas is an addictive writer whose surreal touches create a curiously solid world. Her occasional whimsy somehow turns into comment both trenchant and funny -- Jane Jakeman * Independent *
A cool, clever, original and deeply humane crime writer * Times Literary Supplement *
