Have Mercy on Us All, Paperback / softback Book

Have Mercy on Us All Paperback / softback

Part of the Commissaire Adamsberg series

Paperback / softback

Description

Three times a day in a Parisian square, a curious modern-day crier announces the news items that are left in his box.

Over the course of a few days he receives a number of disturbing and portentous messages of malicious intent, all of them referring to the Black Death.

Strange marks have also appeared on the doors of several buildings: symbols once used to ward off the plague.

Detective Commissaire Adamsberg begins to sense a connection, even a grotesque menace.

Then charged and flea-bitten corpses are found. The press seizes on their plague-like symptoms, and the panic sets in.
