The 16th novel by #1 bestselling author Louise Penny finds Chief Inspector Armand Gamache of the Sûreté du Quebec investigating a sinister plot in the City of Light


On their first night in Paris, the Gamaches gather as a family for a bistro dinner with Armand’s godfather, the billionaire Stephen Horowitz. Walking home together after the meal, they watch in horror as Stephen is knocked down and critically injured in what Gamache knows is no accident, but a deliberate attempt on the elderly man’s life.

When a strange key is found in Stephen’s possession it sends Armand, his wife Reine-Marie, and his former second-in-command at the Sûreté, Jean-Guy Beauvoir, from the top of the Tour d’Eiffel, to the bowels of the Paris Archives, from luxury hotels to odd, coded, works of art.

It sends them deep into the secrets Armand’s godfather has kept for decades.

A gruesome discovery in Stephen’s Paris apartment makes it clear the secrets are more rancid, the danger far greater and more imminent, than they realized.

Soon the whole family is caught up in a web of lies and deceit. In order to find the truth, Gamache will have to decide whether he can trust his friends, his colleagues, his instincts, his own past. His own family.

For even the City of Light casts long shadows. And in that darkness devils hide.

Louise Penny at the Top of her Game!

I’ve them all and enjoyed each very much, but this book is her crowning achievement! Definitely I can see this particular novel turned into a major motion picture. She has culled all the characters we’ve come to know and love to a pivotal moment in each of their lives and brought them to the historical center of Francophile hearts and souls to play out a drama of love and hate and death and new life. Who could ask for more!? Bravo Louise Penny!

The love of a father

I recently lost my father in a tragic accident. I did not get to say goodbye. I could not even see him again. I had started to read this novel, but had to stop to try to piece my shattered life back together. When I was able to start reading again, it was a balm that o desperately needed. The relationship between father and child in this novel, touched the emptiness in my heart. It comforted my aching soul. It sent light to my brokenness. This is an amazing story of a father’s love. Thank you Louise Penny.

All the Devils Are Here

Another wonderful gem of a mystery from Louise Penny! It’s like going home.....always a blessing to visit with the Gamache’s, Beauvoir’s and other Three Pine friends.
