We’re looking forward to welcoming author Louise Penny to BookPeople tomorrow, Tuesday September 3rd at 7pm, with her latest Inspector Gamache novel, How the Light Gets In. Scott read the book and considers it a “game changer in the series”. Scott’s not alone in his praise. Quite a bit of fine press has rolled out for Penny’s latest. Here’s a quick round-up:
“Carrying forward the tradition of mystery masters such as G.K. Chesterton and Dorothy Sayers, Penny has been working throughout her series to tap into the spiritual dimensions of the genre.”
-Maureen Corrigan, Washington Post.
“From its first pages, readers will find themselves invested and unexpectedly comfortable, too comfortable, in Louise Penny’s ultimately intense ninth mystery in the best-selling “Chief Inspector Gamache” series.”
– Don Oldenburg, USA Today
“Louise Penny twists and turns the plot expertly tripping the reader up just at the moment you think you might have solved the mystery. She excels with the characterisation of Armand Gamache. Creating through him a story of human perseverance in the face of personal turmoil he is a deeply complex character.”
-Hannah Brit, Express
“With the grace of a master prose stylist and the generosity born of a kind heart, Penny again explores the mysteries of humanity in a novel that builds to a nerve-burning climax, engages the mind in an examination of sin and redemption and ends in tears of relief. Suffused with brilliance on all levels, “How the Light Gets In” displays Penny at her beautiful and bountiful best.”
– Jay Stafford, Richmond Times Dispatch
