• The Three Evangelists is a strange mix of the sinister, the bizarre and the surreal; her characters seldom behave like ordinary people, and her mysteries do not follow the usual rules of crime fiction. Yet these curiously assembled elements coalesce into a gripping, unsettling whole that stays in the mind far longer than most novels of the genre. It tantalises from page one

    Marcel Berlins, The Times
  • A Vargas novel is as good as a trip to Paris. The style has the same hyper-real quality as all her writing - the real world, but filtered through a strange prism - but it's the plotting that really hits the spot: ingenious and eccentric

    Barry Forshaw, Daily Express
  • A truly original talent, creating situations and characters like nothing else in contemporary crime fiction... This novel is a delight, written in a wonderfully wry tone of voice, and its plot twists will defy the most alert reader

    Joan Taylor, Sunday Times
  • One of France's most original crime writers... her characters are eccentric but appealing and the mystery is enjoyably hard to solve

    Sunday Telegraph
  • Original...plenty to enjoy
