Review quote

Penny's elegant style is deeply satisfying, while Gamache is contemplative even when under pressure, and remains a man you want to spend time with * Metro * Louise Penny's writing is intricate, beautiful and compelling. She is an original voice, a distillation of both PD James and Barbara Vine at their peaks and a worthy successor to both * Peter James * A stirring tale of jealousy and long-awaited revenge * Sunday Telegraph * A delight for all who love crime fiction * Reginald Hill *
