An Uncertain Place
by Fred Vargas and Sian Reynolds




Overview -
Wry humor and offbeat plots blend with a subtly dangerous charm to make Fred Vargas the queen of French crime writers.--Martin Walker, author of the Bruno, Chief of Police Series

"A wildly imaginative series."--The New York Times

From the #1 bestselling French author and four-time winner of the Crime Writers' Association's International Dagger Award.

When Commissaire Jean-Baptiste Adamsberg, the chief of police in Paris's seventh arrondissement, is called to the scene of a ghastly and highly unusual murder, he thinks it can't have anything to do with the nine pairs of shoes and severed feet discovered outside of London's Highgate Cemetery just a few days earlier. With the help of the murdered man's gifted physician, Adamsberg delves into the victim's disturbed psyche and unexpectedly finds himself on a path that takes him deep into the haunted past of Eastern Europe, where a centuries-old horror has come to life and is claiming victims far and wide.
