Publisher's Summary

A # 1 French and Italian best seller from the three-time winner of the CWA&'s International Dagger Award.
More than 10 million copies of Fred Vargas's Commissaire Adamsberg mysteries have been sold worldwide. Now, American readers are getting hooked on the internationally bestselling author's unsettling blend of crime and the supernatural.
As the chief of police in Paris's seventh arrondissement, Commissaire Adamsberg has no jurisdiction in Ordebec. Yet, he cannot ignore a widow's plea. Her daughter Lina has seen a vision of the Ghost Riders with four nefarious men. According to the 1000-year-old legend, the vision means that the men will soon die a grisly death. When one of them disappears, Adamsberg races to Ordebec, where he becomes entranced by the gorgeous Lina - and embroiled in the small Normandy town's ancient feud.

I want MORE Fred Vargas on audible

Would you listen to The Ghost Riders of Ordebec again? Why?

Yes, I would listen to it again but I would prefer to listen to others of the same series. I love mysteries. I love them to be thoughtful. These characters are well developed, the plot is complex yet able to be followed. What sets her apart, is that though very intelligent, the central character doesn't take himself too seriously.

What other book might you compare The Ghost Riders of Ordebec to and why?

I would compare it to books by Louise Penny. As with Penny, the characters are endearing, but Vargas has a delightful sense of humour, that we see a tiny bit of in the character of Ruth in Louise Penny's books.
