Summary

Louise Penny's much loved hero confronts a dark plot lurking beneath the elegant facades of Paris - lose yourself in the breathtaking new crime thriller by the number one best-selling author.

On their first night in Paris, the Gamaches gather for a family dinner with Armand's godfather, the billionaire Stephen Horowitz. But the evening ends in horror when Stephen is knocked down and critically injured in what Armand is convinced is no accident, but a deliberate attempt on an elderly man's life.  

When a strange key is found in Stephen's possession it sends Armand on a desperate search for the truth that will take him from the top of the Tour Eiffel to the bowels of the Paris Archives.

And as Armand begins to uncover the secrets his godfather has kept hidden for decades, he finds himself ensnared in a web of lies and deceit that threatens to destroy everything - and everyone - he holds dear. 

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

Absolutely ridiculous plot

This was a huge disappointment because I was waiting for many months for this book to come out. I read the previous Gamash stories, some were better, some less so but overall quite enjoyable.
However this one is just absurd as much as some characters.
And the amount of time Gamache says ‘I love you’ to his son, his wife, other people is just so repetitive that it will bore you to death.
I won’t read anymore from this author, she should focus rather on storytelling not crime idealising Gamache unless well researched and informed.
Less is more was never more appropriate than in this book series.
The only positive about this story was narration. Very well done to Adam Sims, good you are back, I missed your performance and pronunciation.

Reading rather than listening recommended

This plot goes global, and is so full of twists and double crosses with switching back and forth of scenes, all at lightning speed, that my husband and I both found it difficult to follow at times. Denouement not entirely credible. Stephen's character has silently shed the 2 children he had in a previous book. Sadly not one of Penny's best.

Contrived gooey sentimentalism

This book’s plot is absurd - the Gamache family madly dashing around Paris - outsmarting French movers and shakers with a plot that will make your head hurt. The ending is contrived, the characters cartoonish and the sentiment as cloying as a kilo of pralines. Ridiculous, tedious and self-satisfied. Life’s too short to bother.

A masterpiece

Love all Gamache books and this is not different. If even possible ...more engaging and complicated. Thanks to Louise Penny and hoping for more.

Needs properly editing

This was a very good but not excellent story. I can only say not up to usual standard because bar one other book the whole series has been excellent. It progressed the family background theme well but I missed three pines as all the action takes place in Paris.
On half a dozen occasions passages were repeated that should have been edited out , I don't recall this happening once in all the other books

excellent narration.

Having read all of the Inspector Gamache novels this was one of the best so far. It actually benefits by being set in Paris, instead of the usual Three Pines setting.

Whats makes this Audible production so enjoyable is the narrator. His ability, to give each character their own voice is remarkable. I loved it.

another very good Gamache

Love the series with Gamache. the story is excellent as usual and the narrator is good even if it got some getting used to. some editing is quite disturbing but the overall is very good and well worth listening to.

Brilliant, moving, can’t wait to read it again!

The best in a superb series! Exciting moving complex and set in Paris. I laughed out loud, was challenged by the mystery, felt deeply moved by the relationships and was wowed by Louise Penny’s mastery of the genre. I listened to the story (wonderful) but am about to go and buy a hard copy too to savor it from another perspective! I can’t recommend this highly enough. Prepare to be sleep deprived.

Deliciously rewarding and engrossing.

Perhaps the best so far in the series?
I even ‘forgave’ the fact that most of the action takes place in Paris, not 3 Pines. Sensational storytelling and intricate plot making without too much horror. Have come to depend on the extended Gamache and Friends Family to reassure that all might still be well.

emotional

louise is back to her best in this book. the emotions are so raw. I want to join this close knit family to share the love, bond, hope and acts of forgiveness that only Louise's writing can convey without being sickly sweet and overly done. outstanding 5*'s
