"This Night's Foul Work" is a crime-novel by French author Fred Vargas, an entry in her Commissaire Adamsberg series. The novel is translated into English by Sian Reynolds, translator of Vargas' two previous novels in English, both of which won the Duncan Lawrie International Dagger for best translated crime novel of the year.
