Commissaire Jean Baptiste Adamsberg has been called back to Paris from Iceland to help in a murder investigation While working on the case, he becomes interested in the news story of 3 elderly men dying from a recluse spider bite Adamsberg is not satisfied with the explanation that the men died simply because they were elderly, and therefore not able to survive the bite He believes that the men were murdered.What follows is a very long investigation, with many twists, as Adamsberg s squad follows many leads that eventually fizzle out, before reaching the truth This was a fairly long book 400 pages , that was a little slow starting for me And the names Adamsberg s squad, all the victims, people from the past, name changes, etc added up to confusion at times, along with occasional French references or words that I had to look up But I enjoyed it very much.I noticed that this is actually the 11th book in the series, but I had no problem starting here He was in Iceland at the start of the book, and the narrative says He had forgotten that, not so long ago, he was a commissaire, the police chief in charge of the twenty seven officers of the Paris Serious Crime Squad So his reasons for being in Iceland were probably explained in book 10 I hope to check out some of the earlier books in the series as well Vargas doesn t spare us the grisly details of outrageous crimes committed against defenseless girls and women, but never have I ever wanted to be in a mystery novel before The characterizations of police officers and villagers are so full of personality, intelligence, and humor that one cannot help but wish these folks were by one s side or at least televised According to Wikipedia, four of the Vargas mystery series have been serialized for television I saw one, once, years ago It was painfu Vargas doesn t spare us the grisly details of outrageous crimes committed against defenseless girls and women, but never have I ever wanted to be in a mystery novel before The characterizations of police officers and villagers are so full of personality, intelligence, and humor that one cannot help but wish these folks were by one s side or at least televised According to Wikipedia, four of the Vargas mystery series have been serialized for television I saw one, once, years ago It was painful, considering the renown of French cinema and the intrigue of the novels it is definitely time for a new rendition Any new film series of the novels must be filmed in France and in French because the charm of the series is the utter French ness of the interactions, the local dishes like the cabbage soup with onions and ham the officers eat nearly every night of the investigation, and endless bottles of Madiran.Vargas has given us a convoluted mystery so dense with criminality that we scarcely know which way to turn Just today I was listening to a podcast discussing the many thousands of rape kits in American cities which were never run for DNA when the kits were finally examined, the entire body of knowledge around rape and serial rape has been turned on its head It turns out that there were many, manyrapists than one ever thought possible, and one out of every five rapes is caused by a serial rapist.There has been, as can be seen in the history revealed in this novel and in the untested rape kits languishing on shelves in police stations all over America, a dismissive attitude towards crimes against women In this mystery, some truly horrifying crimes are described thankfully in a matter of fact, non inflammatory way and some male attitudes are examined for bias At one point Chief Inspector Adamsberg realizes describing his favorite female lieutenant as worth ten men would be better changed to one woman Those of us who have worked with colleagues of both sexes are pleased Vargas made a point of chastising Adamsberg for old attitudes.Vargas is known for the depth of her knowledge about medieval subjects and archeology and gradually she incorporates some of her encyclopedic knowledge in thismodern mystery There is an archeological dig, and we learn how to find the site and what it takes to manage it There is a medieval tie in, but the shocking part is that it sounds medieval when in fact some of the events happened within recent history.Chief Inspector Jean Baptiste Adamsberg always puts me in mind of Simenon s Jules Maigret, though the two police chiefs are quite different in many ways One difference is that Maigret, unless my memory is faulty, wasn t necessarily a masterful team leader Adamsberg is far from alone We are intimately familiar with his entire team and grow to rely on them to keep their chief operating in maximum intuition Adamsberg s tiny bubbles of gas in his brain jiggle when he walks, stimulating thought Not so far, then, from Poirot s little grey cells This novel, originally published in May of 2017 by Flammarion of France, has been translated by Si n Reynolds, winner of many awards, including a coveted Dagger from Crime Writers Association Reynolds is a professor emerita of French at the University of Stirling, Scotland In her words, Fred s books are quirky and often fantastical, sometimes with historical elements, and much appreciated in France They are about French characters usually in a recognizably French environment, and will necessarily seem a bit foreign to anglophone readers, so the aim is to make them enjoyable on their own terms but in English This Reynolds does in spades The novels are a remarkable glimpse of French culture and altogether are a marvelous series Highly recommended First Sentence Jean Baptiste Adamsberg, sitting on a rock at the quayside, watched the Grimsey fishermen return with their daily catch as they moored their boats and hauled up their nets Spider bites can kill But three elderly men, living in one area, killed by a small reclusive spider seemsthan accidental to a member of Inspector Jean Baptiste Adamsberg s

small reclusive spider seemsthan accidental to a member of Inspector Jean Baptiste Adamsberg s team As information is gathered, Adamsberg decides to investigate, a decision that causes a rift within his team Running an unauthorized investigation and possibly losing his best friend and right hand man is a risk, but seeking justice is worth it What an interesting opening to have the protagonist, the former commissaire of the Paris Serious Crimes Squad, on a quay in Iceland Adamsberg s respite doesn t last long before he is called back to his team who knows him well Lieutenant Veyrenc knew that when the commissaire was in charge, the squad was like a tall sailing ship, sometimes with a brisk wind behind it, other times becalmed and its sails drooping, rather than a powerful speedboat churning up torrents of spray For those who have read previous books in the series, there is a feeling of coming home For those who have not, Vargas conveys the sense of the team members and their loyalty, from the very start And what a quirky team it is, filled with affection and respect, right down to the cat and Mathias, a character from her The Three Evangelists series It s interesting seeing Adamsberg go through the case and the evidence with the team, which adds veracity to the story The verbal exchanges often make one smile It s called Le Cur de Tours, The Priest of Tours Thank you, said Estal re warmly Still Balzac didn t bust a gut making up the title, did he Estal re, one doesn t say of Balzac that he didn t bust a gut As an historian and an eukaryotic archaeologist Vargas wrote a definitive work on the bubonic plague, and her knowledge certainly contributes to the story s plot There is certainly nothing usual or ordinary about this case to which Adamsberg is attracted, as well as the realism of having the squad workingthan the one case There are very good twists and an escalation in the depth of the crimes involved and in the tension within the team Yet it is all the characters, which are the core of the story, including Louise Chevier and Adamsberg s brother, a revelation in his own life, and the return of the imagery of a ship, which keeps us immersed in the story Vargas plays fair with the reader As Adamsberg begins to put the pieces together, so may we It is very difficult to quantify Vargas work She takes one into the world of the best, most unique police squad one will ever find although some similarities may be made to Christopher Fowler s Bryant and May team With This Poison Will Remain, Vargas has created a story filled with delightful imagery, a unique plot, and a truly touching ending For those who like the unusual and quirky, reading Vargas can be addictive THIS POISON WILL REMAIN PolProc Comm Adamsberg France Contemp
