From the Back Cover

Un matin, la cantatrice Sophia Siméonidis trouve dans son jardin un arbre qui n'y était pas la veille! Qui a planté ce hêtre et pourquoi? Son mari tente de la tranquilliser, mais les jours passent et elle en perd le sommeil. Désemparée, elle demande de l'aide à ses voisins, trois jeunes marginaux sympathiques, mi-savants, mi-clochards : Mathias le préhistorien, Marc le médiéviste et Lucien le fou de la Grande Guerre. Lorsque Sophia disparaît, la police mène l'enquête tandis que le trio d'érudits s'engage dans de tout autres investigations.

Fred Vargas was born in Paris in 1957. As well as being a best-selling author in France, she is an historian and archaeologist.

She worked at the French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS), which she joined in 1988. She later joined the Institut Pasteur, as a eukaryotic archaeologist.

She mostly writes police thrillers (policiers). They take place in Paris and feature the adventures of Chief Inspector Adamsberg and his team. Her interest in the Middle Ages is manifest in many of her novels, especially through the person of Marc Vandoosler, a young specialist in the period. Seeking Whom He May Devour was shortlisted by the British Crime Writers' Association for the last Gold Dagger award for best crime novel of the year, and the following year The Three Evangelists won the inaugural Duncan Lawrie International Dagger. She also won the award for the second year-running with Wash This Blood Clean From My Hand.
