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
