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. This is a Three Evangelists Novel.
How do you solve a murder without a body? A brilliant Three Evangelists novel from France's utterly original bestselling crime writer
Shortlisted for CWA International Dagger 2014.
"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
