The Ghost Riders of Ordebec: A Commissaire Adamsberg Mystery, Book 9

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.

    "Finall the Commissionaire has a voice!!!"

    I have read all of Vargas' books - brilliant. The Concessionaire's crew of investigators are one of a kind. Vargas is a best seller in Europe and world famous. Please put all of her books on audible!

    "Wonderful"
    If you could sum up The Ghost Riders of Ordebec in three words, what would they be?

    Best mystery this year


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    All of them


    Any additional comments?

    PLEASE PLEASE using the same reader, provide all Fred Vargas' books. She is too good to miss and bless the narrator, he does not butcher the French.

    "Lots of fun"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Ghost Riders of Ordebec to be better than the print version?

    No. Just a lot of fun if you want a good listen of a light novel.


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

    Other Fred Vargas books. Because they're written by Fred Vargas. This was particularly enjoyable.


    Which character – as performed by David Rintoul – was your favorite?

    oh for goodness sake: it was just a good read all round.


    Who was the most memorable character of The Ghost Riders of Ordebec and why?

    The Commissaire is always fun, with his drifting thoughts, mysterious methods, and outlier ethics. And now he's got a son with drifting thoughts, mysterious methods, and outlier ethics - they make a really readable pair.


    Any additional comments?

    Fun. Lots of fun.
