  1. Sorry to hear you didn’t enjoy that Vargas novel as much as some of the others (I have a secret faiblesse for it, perhaps because of its setting). But excellent choice of Reginald Hill!

    • Thanks for your comment Marina Sofia. Fred Vargas is also one of my favourite writers maybe for this reason I have much higher expectations with her books.
      And I also have a soft spot for National Parks even if I’ve not been yet in Mercantour, but I’m glad to have known it thanks to this book.
