Fabulous Fiction Firsts #37

Already a bestseller and a household name in European publishing, mystery readers in the US are just now discovering Fred Vargas.

Her (yes, no mistake here, her!) first title to be translated from the French, Have Mercy On Us All is an engaging police procedural with a strong tie to her interest in medieval history. Someone in modern day Paris is recreating the Black Plague epidemic and bodies are piling up.

Look for her new title in the same series Seeking Whom He May Devour : Chief Inspector Adamsberg investigates.
