Revue de presse

"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)

Présentation de l'éditeur

Shortlisted for the CWA International Dagger

HOW DO YOU SOLVE A MURDER WITHOUT A BODY?

Keeping watch under the windows of the Paris flat belonging to a politician's nephew, ex-special investigator Louis Kehlweiler catches sight of something odd on the pavement. A tiny piece of bone. Human bone, in fact.

When Kehlweiler takes his find to the nearest police station, he faces ridicule. Obsessed by the fragment, he follows the trail to the tiny Breton fishing village of Port-Nicolas - in search of a dog. But when he recruits 'evangelists' Marc and Mathias to help, they find themselves facing even bigger game.

Newcomers to Fred Vargas (FV)’ oeuvre gasp during the first 50 pp of any of her 10 crime novels, wondering what is happening and why, and why things are not explained step by step as other crime writers do. This confusion also affects aficionados like me. Her novels (FV is a female historian and archaeologist) defy the rules of the genre.
This second book in the Three Evangelists series finds Louis/Ludwig Kehlweiler (LK), 50, without a job but not without work. He was recently sacked as special investigator at the Ministry of the Interior, but his army of informers in Paris and every French province remains in place and with subscriptions to French regional newspapers he keeps his big private archive up to date. His archivist (2 hours per day) is Marc, one of the 3 evangelists: dirt-poor, underemployed historians living in a ramshackle house, with Marc’s uncle occupying the top floor: St Luke is obsessed by the Great War, St Mathew by prehistory and hunter-gatherers, St Marc is a medievalist. Marc’s uncle was dismissed from the Paris police for letting a murderer go.
LK finds a suspicious human bone in Paris. It prompts him, then Marc, then the paleontologist to travel to a Breton fishing village rife with secrets and intrigue. FVs crime novel breathe a unique atmosphere, often tackling primordial French fears and hosting a cast of eccentric characters. As police procedurals the main protagonists use rather quaint methods and techniques: LK his vast archive of newspaper cuttings and his spies, whilst Jean-Baptiste Adamsberg (hero of 7 books) relies primarily on his intuition. This book’s characters include a collector of rare typewriters, a 70-year old former prostitute, a war criminal, a former girlfriend and pit-bull Ringo. Full of what French people love, arguing and philosophy, plus a string of brilliant twists and turns, regularly punctuated by LK sighing ‘I could do with a beer’. Great translation, too.

HASH(0x8c4f530c) étoiles sur 5 Wacky and strange thriller 18 mai 2014
Par Suncoast - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
If you can take wacky ("funny or amusing in a slightly odd or peculiar way") characters and strange plots, and want a change from your normal NYPD style crime thriller this one may be for you. If not please be entertained by a quick look at this synopsis of French prize winning novelist Fred (Frédérique) Vargas's second book in her "The Three Evangelists" series published in 1996 but only recently translated from the French.

Louis Kehlweiler (or Ludwig because he has a German father) has been a powerful investigator with the Ministry of the Interior. Since he was sacked by newcomers who didn't respect his powers he has still kept up his investigations with the help of his old cronies, with Marthe, an elderly prostitute, leader of the band. He still uses the park benches of Paris as his lookout posts which he has numbered for convenience up to 137.

One problem is that Marthe is getting old and confuses 102 for 107. Louis is also showing the strain and now that his latest girlfriend has left, the "love of his life" is Bufo, a toad that he carries with him almost everywhere except cafè's where Bufo gets a bit panicky and would do the same to the patrons.

Sounds a bit whacky? Sure but it gets even whackier when late one evening Louis spots some dog faeces on a grating close to bench 107 which has been cleaned off by next morning by a violent overnight storm leaving a little white thing - a gnawed human toe bone. With the help of the first "Evangelist" Marc Vandalooser, a 30 something unemployed student of medieval life, they track down most of the regular dog walkers in the park and eventually work out that the dog concerned travels to Paris each week with his owner from a small town in Brittany.

Louis, and then Marc, travel to Brittany to find the dog and the body. They stir up a small hornet's nest in the small town finding the body and trying to track down the murderer.

The other "Evangelists" are an obsessed pre-historian studying human evolution from hunter-gatherers, and a student of the Great War. This time only the first two are used leaving the third in reserve for the next book.

This is a very different wacky thriller that kept the pages turning as strange things kept happening. At times it was brilliant and at others pretty silly. I gave it 3.5 stars for originality.

Small spoiler - you may be interested to know that Bufo the toad survives to the end but has to be watered down because he dried out on long train rides. Vargas left us with a seed for her next book "Sans feu ni lieu" (Without Hearth or Home) published in France in 1997 in which we will probably see more of the third Evangelist when it is translated.

My thanks to The Reading Room and the publisher for a copy of this book for review.

Vargas quirky characters never disappoint. Far-out plot very well done. I just wish they would translate and publish her books faster.

Vargas has become a new favourite among favourites. Odd characters, funny, thrilling and filled with surprises, just very enjoyable! I wish I could read her books in French, but the English translation is very good indeed and has kept the French touch very well. This was my third Fred Vargas book, hope to find more of her.

HASH(0x8c4f5420) étoiles sur 5 Eagerly awaiting translations of the next two Vargas books 22 juin 2015
Par Curmudgea - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Both my son and I have read and thoroughly enjoyed all of Fred Vargas' books. We agreed that this one wasn't quite up to the others -- not as good as the first Three Evangelists book; however, anything Vargas writes is so much more fun than anything else out there that we raced through it just the same. Maybe the missing element was some of the medieval history that's usually in the mix. Or, that there were a few somewhat repetitive passages, with Marc ruminating a lot over the same thing.

All that aside, we are eagerly anticipating the translation into English of the two books already published in France. Especially the Adamsburg one.
