A Climate of Fear Reviews

"French crime queen's new mystery - her best yet." Sunday Times "[Vargas] has won the CWA international dagger four times, confirming her place in the top rank of contemporary crime writers... [A Climate of Fear] is easily the best thing she has ever done... The idea of history repeating itself is at the heart of this stunning novel, which confirms Vargas' fine understanding of the unchanging nature of human passions." Sunday Times "A reminder that Fred Vargas is one of the most entertainingly eccentric of all current European crime writers... [It] demonstrates why Vargas is so highly esteemed... Highly impressive." -- Barry Forshaw Independent "Vargas writes with strength, erudition and unique imagination... In the crowded world of crime fiction, she's a valuable one-off. A Climate of Fear is one of her best." -- Marcel Berlins The Times "A rich and remarkable work that may be her masterpiece." Crime Scene
