The Three Evangelists

New or Used: $23.00
Sophia Simeonidis, a Greek opera singer, wakes up one morning to discover that a tree has appeared overnight in the garden of her Paris house. As her husband doesn't give a damn, she asks her new neighbours to dig around the tree to find out if something has been buried. Her neighbours seem eccentric. First, there is Vandoosler, an ex-cop fired from the police for having helped a murderer to escape. Sharing the house are three impecunious historians, Mathias, Mark and Luke - the three evangelists, as Vandoosler calls them. They accept the job because they urgently need money and out of sheer curiosity. They find nothing but soil under the tree. A few weeks later, Sophia disappears and nobody seems to worry until her body is found burnt to ashes in a car. Who killed Sophia? Her husband, her ex-lover, her best friend? Or could it be her lovely niece recently moved to Paris? They all seem to have a motive. Vandoosler and the three evangelists decide to investigate.

About the Author

Fred Vargas was born in Paris in 1957. A historian and archaeologist by profession, she is now a bestselling novelist. Her books have been translated into thirty-two languages.


'A work of real class - its characters sharp, multi-faceted and original, and its style crisply intelligent.' Glasgow Herald; 'Slick, creepy and full of engagingly odd characters, this thriller is a class act.' MATTHEW REISZ, Independent; 'Commissaire Adamsberg - the dreamy, irrational flic in Vargas's crime novels- must be the most engaging French detective since Malgret' SB Kelly, Scotland on Sunday; 'Poetic, offbeat and gently addictive. Her prose has an unusual deftness, a wry humour. A unique voice' Guardian"
