After a lengthy binge read of Louise Penny s spectacular series I was forced to wait a few weeks for this latest release The wait was worth it as Penny continues to impress while building on established story angles Fans will surely find something with which they can relate in this highly detailed novel On a cold day in the dead of winter Chief Superintendent Armand Gamache finds himself searching for a nondescript home He received a letter from a notary asking that he attend this location though cannot make sense of what might be taking place Gamache soon notices that his longtime

Beauvoir work to piece it all together before people die at the hands of these new drugs which may also be the only way for Gamache to save his job A thrilling addition to the series that will keep Penny fans wanting I would highly recommend this book to series fans who have a great handle on the characters and writing style Readers new to Penny s series ought to begin where the stories began and progress accordinglyThose who follow my reviews closely will remember that I recently completed a major Louise Penny binge reading her entire collection of Gamache novels I saw a great deal of development in the series both in the settings particularly Three Pines and the characters especially Armand Gamache the constant protagonist Some readers were critical of such a major undertaking but I found it highly refreshing Penny places her protagonist in an interesting spot as the novel opens the head of the entire S ret du u bec and yet on active suspension which enriches the entire reading experience He seems sure that his past choices related to drugs and the cartels will be vindicated when the bureaucrats see the bigger picture As usual Gamache seems unfazed by the trouble that awaits him content to find a mystery that needs his attention Gamache is pulled in by this liuidator mystery which takes over much of his time though the opening with former Cadet Amelia Chouet returning to her life as a drug addict is an interesting subplot that permits the Chief Superintendent a glimpse into the drugs he has permitted to hit the streets This character struggle is a brilliant angle that Penny adds to the mix of this piece which enriches his already strong character While Jean Guy Beauvoir and Isabelle Lacoste are active throughout the book their police presence blends in with Gamache s work rather than standing out alone There are references and entire scenes related to the Three Pines residents though the story takes place out of the community making these uniue and highly entertaining characters decorative than essential There are a handful of other characters whose presence help propel the story forward in true Penny fashion and offering the reader some wonderful development opportunities The story is well done and it pulls on both threads left hanging from past novels and new ideas which serve as a mystery that keeps the narrative moving forward Penny finds new ideas to entertain and educated the curious reader as well as showing her great abilities at painting a scene that pulls the reader in and does not let go While some may have panned the latter part of the series I cannot offer enough praise for this novel or the entire collection Penny has a grip on things and there is no sense that it is in trouble even with than a dozen novels completed I cannot wait for and hope Penny has ideas over the coming years to keep the characters exciting for all Her acknowledgement section is worth a read for those who have followed the series as Penny reveals an interesting tidbitKudos Madam Penny for allowing me to be fully committed throughout This is a series I will not soon forget or regretLikehate the review An ever growing collection of others appears at Book for All Seasons a different sort of Book Challenge
