Temps Glaciaires

At long last, the hazy, unfathomable Commissioner Adamsberg is back, accompanied by his team—a group of whimsical and disarming characters.  This time, he tries to get to the bottom of a group of murders committed by a mysterious killer who marks his victims with a cryptic symbol: a drawing of a guillotine.  What links the victims?  Bringing the reader along for a torturous investigation at the boundary of fantasy and madness, Adamsberg takes us to the barren landscape of a magical island and brings us back through the terrible, imperishable footsteps of Robespierre.

With unforgettable characters, cutting dialogue, and a tense, occasionally surreal atmosphere, Fred Vargas spins tales that are easily devoured in one sitting.
