The opera singer Sophia Simeonidis wakes up one morning to discover that a tree has appeared overnight in the garden of her Paris house. Intrigued and unnerved, she turns to her neighbours: Vandoosler, an ex-cop, and three impecunious historians, Mathias, Marc and Lucien - the three evangelists. They agree to dig around the tree and see if something has been buried there. They find nothing but soil. A few weeks later, Sophia disappears and her body is found burned to ashes in a car. Who killed the opera singer? Her husband, her ex-lover, her best friend, her niece? They all seem to have a motive. Vandoosler and the three evangelists set out to find the truth.

4.0 The Three Evangelists
Fred Vargas is a woman, and French. The former is certainly no obstacle to writing a fun mystery novel; the latter makes the flavour of the language interesting (I'm reading in translation, though). I was loaned this book by a colleague, who says Vargas is all the rage in France just now - a French ...
