Keeping watch under the windows of the Paris flat belonging to a politician's nephew, ex-cop Louis Kehlweiler catches sight of something odd on the pavement. A small white object, surrounded by the excrement of local dogs. A piece of bone. Human bone, in fact. Naturally, when Kehlweiler takes his find to the nearest police station, he faces ridicule. But the tiny fragment obsesses him so much that he stops shadowing people with something to hide in the city and follows the trail to the tiny Breton fishing village of Port-Nicolas. Because someone there owns a pit bull terrier. A dog that would take a bite out of anything. Even the foot of a corpse.

Reviews

"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
