Author Louise Penny
Three mystery novels by Louise Penny: The Brutal Telling, Bury Your Dead, and A Trick of Light are available for your enjoyment. Penny is an award winning Canadian mystery novelist of twelve Chief Inspector Armand Gamache novels.
Chief Inspector Gamache
Her series of books contain little or no sex or violence and are literally a ‘kinder, gentler’ mystery novel than what one often finds these days. I am charmed by Inspector Gamache, but he is not without his faults. He is a kind man, a family man, devoted to his wife and finds value and talent in many younger, lower grade detectives that others dismiss as ‘not worth the effort’. Gamache listens, thinks, has doubts, makes mistakes. The Inspector is human. You’ll definitely not figure out ‘who done it’ until the end”. So worth your time. Each a page turner you’ll not put down until finished. Great escape novels, highly recommended. Reviewed by Merry Van Deusen
