Description

"Penny has been compared to Agatha Christie, and while there is a surface resemblance there, it sells her short. Her characters are too rich, her grasp of nuance and human psychology too firm for the formula-bound Christie. No, Penny belongs in the hands of those who read not only P. D. James but also Donna Leon, who, like Penny, mixes her hero's family and professional lives fluidly and with a subtle grasp of telling detail." -Booklist (starred)

This superb novel will appeal to readers who enjoy sophisticated literary mysteries in the tradition of Donna Leon." -Library Journal (starred)

Penny is a world-class storyteller. If you don't want to move to Montreal with Gamache as your neighbor--or better yet, relocate to Three Pines and be welcomed into its community of eccentrics--you have sawdust in your veins, which must be very uncomfortable." -Kirkus Reviews

Additional Praise for Louise Penny and the Armand Gamache Mysteries

"Penny sustains her high-wire act, creating characters of remarkable depth in an exhilarating whodunit." --People

"Louise Penny is unsurpassed at building a sense of heart-stopping urgency." --The Charlotte Observer

"Penny, who raises the bar with each entry in this superb series, has always mixed murder and corruption with issues of morality...[S]he does so with her accustomed talent for a gripping plot, rich characterizations, arresting prose and thought-provoking questions of mercy, malice and the contradictions of the human race." --Richmond-Times Dispatch

"This series dominates best-seller lists and award lists for a reason. Penny tells powerful stories of damage and healing in the human heart, leavened with affection, humor and - thank goodness - redemption." --Salem Macknee, Charlotte Observer

"Penny writes with grace and intelligence about complex people struggling with complex emotions. But her great gift is her uncanny ability to describe what might seem indescribable - the play of light, the sound of celestial music, a quiet sense of peace." --New York Times Book Review
