THEIR CHIEF OPERATING IN MAXIMUM INTUITION ADAMSBERG S TINY chief operating in maximum intuition Adamsberg s tiny of gas in his brain jiggle when he walks stimulating thought Not so far then from Poirot s little grey cells This novel originally published in May of 2017 by Flammarion of France has been translated by Si n Reynolds winner of many awards including a coveted Dagger from Crime Writers Association Reynolds is a professor emerita of French at the University of Stirling Scotland In her words Fred s books are uirky and often fantastical sometimes with historical elements and much appreciated in France They are about French characters usually in a recognizably French environment and will necessarily seem a bit foreign to anglophone readers so the aim is to make them enjoyable on their own terms but in English This Reynolds oes in spades The novels are a remarkable glimpse of French culture and altogether are a marvelous series Highly recommended.
