The Furious Army

A little old lady, who comes from Normandy, waits for Police Superintendent Adamsberg on the footpath. Altough they have not arranged a meeting, it is with him alone that she wishes to speak.

One night in her village, her daughter saw The Furious Army. They are a cohort of the living dead who come to carry away the worst kinds of people from the surrounding area. Murderers, robbers and anyone without a clear conscience is threatened. As the old legend goes, this is a sign that many will be murdered. Adamsberg agrees to go there and carry out the investigation in the village terrorised by superstitions and wild rumours.

The Furious Army is the eighth novel in the Adamsberg series and has met with international success (each title in the series has sold on average 400 000 copies in France and 100 000 copies have been sold in Germany and Italy).

About the Author
Fred  Vargas

Fred Vargas is the pseudonym of French historian, archaeologist and writer Frédérique Audoin-Rouzeau, born in 1957 in Paris. Fred is the diminutive of her given name, Frédérique, while Vargas derives from the Ava Gardner character in The Barefoot Contessa and is the pseudonym adopted by her twin sister, Joëlle Jo Vargas, a painter.

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.

There is no mystery about her success. France’s most acclaimed crime writer is a fan both of P.G. Wodehouse and Stendhal. Her detective stories are published in 40 countries. Her novels about the kindly, quixotic Commissaire Adamsberg are unique, presenting a France that resembles Simenon’s in its concreteness, but with a fantastical, even surreal, twist: werewolves, vampires and armies of ghosts on horseback. British Crime Writers’ Association has awarded her its annual International Dagger three times since the prize was inaugurated in 2006.

Fred Vargas took an important part in the defence of Cesare Battisti, a left-wing activist sought by Italian and French justice since 2004 for alleged assassinations committed in the 1970s, during the "years of lead".
