Reviews

"It's all rather delightfully bonkers, a playful and subversively unorthodox take on the private eye novel by a master of her craft" -- Declan Burke * Irish Times *
"A real wonder of a book, in all senses of the word" * Waterford Today *
"The book is as beguiling as previous entries in the Three Evangelists series, with the pleasure here coming from the comic interplay between the unconventional sleuths" -- Barry Forshaw * Guardian *
"Vargas is the poet of modern French crime writing, her work has a slightly ethereal feel... this is solid gold Euro-noir crime fiction. A high calibre literary thriller that entertains with aplomb... The Accordionist is cleverly plotted, the intensity builds and what starts out as intriguing becomes more involving as the reader is gripped by the fundamental question, `who did it?' More than other crime novels, you have to surrender to Vargas's vision of the world, one that you will not instantly recognise but may come to love... The Accordionist satisfies the most ardent noir strictures; slightly subversive, strong plotting, droll humour, inventive twists and elegant prose. This is a real treat for lovers of intelligent crime fiction" -- Paul Burke * Nudge *
"Shockingly original, disturbingly eccentric and massively involving, Vargas books are a step beyond ordinary crime fiction and take you on a startling journey... Their quirky interplay and unconventional way of thinking...makes for a droll, entertaining read. Translator Sian Reynolds has a knack of rendering their cadences and ticks into readable English" * Connexion *
