A phenomenal bestseller in France, This Night’s Foul Work is another irresistible installment in the internationally acclaimed Commissaire Adamsberg series.

On the edge of Paris two small-time drug dealers have had their throats cut in a peculiar fashion. Setting out on the trail of the shadowy killer, Commissaire Adamsberg and his detectives travel between Paris and the Normandy countryside. Adamsberg’s investigation into these horrible deaths brings him into contact with the attractive Ariane Lagarde –a pathologist who caused him professional grief some twenty-five years ago. There’s also a new lieutenant on the scene, whose ties to Adamsberg’s past create tension and hostility in his present. Vargas has given us another multi-layered, deliciously-paced and thrilling addition to her acclaimed series.

This Night’s Foul Work is the finest novel yet from the wonderful Fred Vargas.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Potions and Ghosts And yet another great Commissaire Adamsberg mystery. I love this quirky policeman. I like the way he thinks...the way his head is in the clouds and it's in these clouds that he finds his answers. A potion that brings eternal life, the walking Shade, a ghost in the attic..and can't forget the Snowball....the cat that everyone loves...all of this makes for a fast-paced mystery that kept me guessing until the very end. I hope that more of Vargas's books are soon translated...just for me.
