We gave it a B
After a systematic slaughter of lambs in the French Alps leads to a human victim, locals begin to suspect that the presumed culprits — wolves — might be more supernatural in Fred Vargas’s Seeking Whom He May Devour.
During the day, werewolves have zero body hair; their pelts are hidden beneath their skin.
Amélie meets Grizzly Man, but with wolves!
French novelist Vargas doesn’t always pull off the delicate balancing act of the swiftly shifting tones — eerie mystery, eccentric travelogue, winsome romance, shaggy-dog police yarn — but the attempt is stimulating.
