A real Penny from Heaven, 7 Dec 2010
I was introduced to Louise Penny's books with this one and have bought every other one I can get my hands on. They are absolute musts for all lovers of the traditional mystery story - the hero, Inspector Gamache, is an all too human, sensitive and wise detective in the Maigret tradition. The settings, reminiscent of Midsommer Murders with a touch of Agatha Christie. The style, the multiple characters, each with a sub-story of their own........ What can I say but absolute Magic. In fact, I find myself reading her books much more slowly than I do with other authors' works, savouring every page with absolute delight. Please give us more!
