HOW THE LIGHT GETS IN
Louise Penny’s New York Times best-selling series continues with How the Light Gets In. One of the most acclaimed crime writers of our time, Penny has won the New Blood Dagger as well as multiple Agatha, Anthony, Dilys, and Arthur Ellis Awards for her Chief Inspector Armand Gamache series. Gamache, of the Sûreté du Québec, digs beneath the idyllic surface of village life in Three Pines, finding long-buried secrets — and facing a few of his own ghosts.
It is a shadowy time for Chief Inspector Gamache. Most of his best agents have left the Homicide Department, his old friend and lieutenant Jean-Guy Beauvoir hasn’t spoken to him in months, and hostile forces are aligning against him. When Gamache receives a message from Myrna Landers that a longtime friend has failed to arrive for Christmas in Three Pines, he welcomes the chance to get away from the city. Mystified by Myrna’s reluctance to reveal her friend’s name, Gamache soon discovers the missing woman was once one of the most famous people not just in North America, but in the world, and now goes unrecognized by virtually everyone except the mad, brilliant poet Ruth Zardo.
As events come to a head, Gamache is drawn ever deeper into the world of Three Pines. Increasingly, he is not only investigating the disappearance of Myrna’s friend but also seeking a safe place for himself and his still-loyal colleagues. Is there peace to be found even in Three Pines, and at what cost to Gamache and the people he holds dear?
