The Ghost Riders of Ordebec : A Commissaire Adamsberg Novel Paperback
by Fred Vargas
Part of the Commissaire Adamsberg series
'People will die,' says the panic-stricken woman outside police headquarters.
She refuses to speak to anyone besides Commissaire Adamsberg.
Her daughter has seen a vision: ghostly horsemen who target the most nefarious characters in Normandy.
Since the middle ages there have been stories of murderers, rapists, those with serious crimes on their conscience, meeting a grisly end following a visitation by the riders.
Soon after the young woman's vision a notoriously vicious and cruel man disappears.
Although the case is far outside his jurisdiction, Adamsberg agrees to investigate the strange happenings in a village terrorised by wild rumours and ancient feuds.
