Glühend steht die Sonne über Paris, als eine verängstigte Dame Kommissar Adamsberg aufsucht: Ihre Tochter Lina hat das »Wütende Heer« gesehen – der Legende nach kündigt dieser Geisterzug kommende Todesfälle an. Vier Opfer sah Lina, und als der erste Mann spurlos verschwindet, zögert Adamsberg nicht. Er bricht in die kühlen Wälder der Normandie auf, doch bevor er die Fährte aufnehmen kann, wird ein Anschlag auf einen einflussreichen Pariser Geschäftsmann verübt, man ruft ihn in die Metropole zurück. Da erfüllt sich Linas Vision erneut. Adamsberg ist sicher: Jemand bedient sich des mittelalterlichen Mythos, um ungestört zu morden. Für den Kommissar beginnt ein Wettlauf mit der Zeit. „Wenn Vargas Musikerin wäre, wäre sie allein ein ganzes Orchester.“ ELLE „Eine ganz große Vargas!“ LE MONDE „Fred Vargas ist zurück – in Bestform.“ LE FIGARO LITTÉRAIRE
