Description
A chilling new mystery from France's #1 bestselling writer
Twice awarded the International Dagger by the Crime Writers? Association, Fred Vargas has earned a reputation in Europe as a mystery author of the first order. In "This Night's Foul Work," the intuitive Commissaire Adamsberg teams up with Dr. Ariane, a pathologist with whom he crossed paths twenty years ago, to unravel a beguiling mystery that begins with the discovery of two bodies in Paris's Porte de la Chapelle. Adamsberg believes it may be the work of a killer with split personalities, who is choosing his or her victims very carefully. As other murders begin to surface, Adamsberg must move quickly in order to stop the ?Angel of Death? from killing again. Intricately plotted and featuring Vargas's wry humor, "This Night's Foul Work" will keep readers guessing up to the final page.
