First Sentence On Tuesday four sheep were killed at Ventebrune in the French AlpsCamille is a composer and plumber living in a small French Alp village where sheep are being killer by an unseen beast The murder of a townswoman raises suspicion of a werewolf Residents begin to suspect Massart a loner who came to the area 20 year ago and has now disappeared The woman s adopted son and an old shepherd convince Camille to be their driver as they search for Massat When they find the search impossible on their own they wish for a very special policeman Camille reluctantly calls upon her former lover Commissaire Jean Baptiste Adamsburg for helpOne of the first things I look for in a book is the characters For me they must be well conveyed strong uniue and yes I must be able to if not like at least empathize with them Vargas creates just such characters and it is they who drive the story I was delighted that we get to know Camille in this book as she was previously something of a mystery herself The residents of the village Suzanne and particularly the old shepherd and Solomon with home Camille ventures forth are wonderfully created with affection humor There is also great poignancy to the relationship particularly with the inclusion of Adamsburgh into the traveling trio And humor there is but the wry dry humor of the author s voice Vargas has a wonderful voice I love her imagery and descriptions particularly in the opening when she anthropomorphizes the wolves She brings the story location and people to life If there is a weakness it is in the plot but only because the characters are so strong However I found the further I progressed into the story the intrigued I was by the mystery I knew the killer is not a werewolf the story is not horror or fantasy I did suspect the villain but appreciated that being given details as to the motive behind the crimes as well as uncovering the killer There is also a second thread to the story which adds suspense There is no uestion I have become a Vargas fan I highly recommend giving her a try but start with either her standalone The Three Evangelists or The Chalk Circle Man the first book in the Adamsberg seriesSEEKING WHOM HE MAY DEVOUR Pol Proc Comm Jean Baptiste Adamsberg France Cont VGVargas Fred 3rd in seriesSimon Schuster Paperbacks 1999 Trade Paperback ISBN 9780743284028

L'homme à l'envers Free download × 102 In this frightening and surprising novel the eccentricwayward genius of Commissaire Adamsberg is pitted against the deep rooted mysteries of one Alpine village's history and a very present problem wolvesDisturbing things. Seeking Whom He May Devour is book number two in Fred Vargas series featuring Commissaire Adamsberg of the French police nationale following The Chalk Circle Man In 2005 it was nominated for the CWA Gold Dagger Award This novel is another one which I d label as crime light and actually reminds me a great deal of Andrea Camilleri s Inspector Montalbano series There are a host of uirky characters a bit of humor a chief inspector who isn t anywhere close to what one would consider normal and a lot of local color Also like the Montalbano series my sense is that these books aren t written to focus mainly on the crime elements or the police procedural aspects but rather on the people who populate these novelsThe small village of Saint Victor in The French Alps is the setting for this adventure which begins with the report of the deaths of four sheep This took place at Ventebrune on Tuesday on Thursday nine were found savaged at Pierrefort As the number of dead sheep increases the villagers begin to suspect that the culprit is a rogue wolf that roams the mountains But after the savage death of Suzanne Rosselin the owner of the breeding station just west of Saint Victor there are those who begin to suspect that perhaps it s something not of this world and that the real killer is a werewolf Suspicion falls on one Massart who works in the municipal slaughterhouse keeps to himself in his shack and is rarely seen in the village But what really makes some believe in Massart as a werewolf is the fact that he has no body hair Smooth skinned as a choirboy he fits the bill the mark of the werewolf is that he wears his hair on the inside and at night he turns himself around and his hairy coat appears This as one person notes makes him an inside out man which reflects the original French title of this novel After Suzanne s death Massart vanishes leaving behind only a map with a specifically marked route that includes the sites of the previous sheep slaughters Convinced that it s their duty to go after Massart and rid the French countryside of this werewolf killer two unlikely companions decide to go after him First there s Suzanne s adopted son Soliman who had been found at the the village church as a baby Soliman is black and the villagers were a bit bewildered at seeing a black baby just left there and it wasn t until Suzanne came along and picked him up that he was comforted Suzanne had spent a great deal of time teaching Soliman about his African roots and Soliman is constantly spouting often unfathomable African legends to apply to various situations Second is old Watchee Suzanne s shepherd at the breeding station And to drive the old and very stinky cattle truck Soliman and Watchee recruit Camille the elusive on againoff again love of Commissaire Jean Baptiste Adamsberg s life who is now living in the village composing music for a soap opera and working as a plumber Her current love interest is a Canadian scientist who studies wolves in the wild currently in the Mercantour National Park in France near the village As the strange trio sets out on the road there are even deaths and they begin to realize that this project is beyond them They need to find some help a special sort of policeman A very special flic A flic who d pass on all the info about giving us any grief and who d let us carry on tracking the vampire downAnd as it just so happens Camille knows just the guy Jean Baptiste Adamsberg in Paris at the police headuarters in the fifth arrondissementWhile the mystery itself is a bit predictable it s not really the who that counts but rather the getting there that makes this story Adamsberg is no ordinary cop he deals uite a bit in intuition has his senses alert to odd situations and from time to time gets little insights out of the blue as to when things are important He has a good rapport with his colleagues although they find him a bit strange and an even better rapport with the common man The rest of the characters are uirky as is the dialogue from time to time If not laugh out loud funny at times there is a great deal of humor interlaced with the serious business of finding a killer and bringing the culprit to justice The author is really good at bringing out the sense of place down to the hairpin curves on a French mountain road or the stink of sheep fat In short there are many things to experience within this novel and it s obvious that Vargas really enjoys writing these books As I said earlier this is a novel on the lighter side of crime and so should appeal to readers who tend to stay away from hardcore crime fiction It s also a book for readers who enjoy uirky crimes uirky people and a good laugh here and there much as also noted above like the Salvo Montalbano series Definitely recommended I m already on book 4 Wash This Blood Clean From My Hands on my way to the latest An Uncertain Place which is on this year s CWA International Dagger shortlist You should probably read the series in order of publication not English translation because the whole AdamsbergCamille relationship starts in book one and may be difficult to follow otherwise

Seeking Whom He May Devour by French writer Fred Vargas concentrates on the characters than it does on crimes Book two in the Commissaire Adamsberg series it is better translated into English than the first book The Chalk Circle Man It continues the pattern of emphasizing the uirkiness of characters of the crimes of the plot Officially mysteries I believe these novels are humorous entertainments than they are mysteries They are like cozies except the murder descriptions tend to induce an ick response However so far none of the murders in the two novels has crossed into ewwww sick bastard territoryIn the previous novel Commissaire Jean Baptiste Adamsberg kept drifting into memories about an ex girlfriend Camille Forestier In this story she is actually there in most of the book She comes back into Adamsberg s life when a werewolf begins tearing sheep apart Yes I said werewolf Or is it a werewolf The torn out throats of the sheep have convinced the farmers it is either a large dog or wolf but as the forensics on the ground is spare even weird the farmers begin to think werewolf As it happens Camille s new boyfriend is a Canadian Lawrence Donald Johnstone He is a celebrity noted for his documentary studies of Canadian grizzly bears but he has for the moment become fascinated by France s European wolves He freuents the Mercantour Range in the Alps to study them relying on local guides Then a sheep breeder is found dead throat torn out The murder is out of Adamsberg s Paris jurisdiction but he couldn t help following the bizarre story in the newspapers When he spots Camille on TV standing next to a handsome man Johnstone wild dogs couldn t stop Adamsberg from starting an investigation Of course it is only the werewolf suppositions that are of interest Right Clues to the murder seem to be pointing to a missing local man with a big dog A map with x s possible future murders is discovered in the man s hut Then after a second murder matches an x on the map it seems soI think this novel was kinda fun a mystery road trip undertaken by oddball characters following a map of murder
