“ A delicious Parisian chiller’ Boyd Tonkin, Independent’Moody, tense and grotesque, Vargas’s prize-winning novel is a fascinating exploration of Paris’s dark side. ”, The Guardian

Each day, in honour of a Parisian tradition, a town crier calls out the local news to all who will listen. Over the course of a few days a number of disturbing messages are slipped in to his box, messages of portentous and malicious intent referring to the Black Death. Strange marks have also appeared on the doors of several buildings: symbols once used to ward off the plague. Detective Commissaire Adamsberg begins to sense a connection, even a grotesque menace. Then charred and flea-bitten corpses are found. The press seizes on their plague-like symptoms, and the panic sets in.
