"A. Ma. Zing! A remarkably courageous—and very beautiful—book that leaps the abyss between faith and despair."
“Elliptical and often oracular… also remarkably penetrating and humane. The most illuminating analogies are not to other contemporary detective fiction but to The Name of the Rose and Murder in the Cathedral.”
“An entire mystery novel centering on Gregorian chants (whose curiously hypnotic allure is called the “beautiful mystery”)? Yes, indeed, and in the hands of the masterful Penny, the topic proves every bit as able to transfix readers as the chants do their listeners.”
—Booklist (starred review)
“Elegant… This heart-rending tale is a marvelous addition to Penny’s acclaimed series. Fans won’t be disappointed.”
—Library Journal (starred review)
“Traditional mystery fans can look forward to a captivating whodunit plot, a clever fair-play clue concealed in plain view, and the deft use of humor to lighten the story’s dark patches. On a deeper level, the crime provides a means for Penny’s unusually empathic, all-too-fallible lead to unearth truths about human passions and weaknesses while avoiding simple answers.”
—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Love books by Louise Penny. Beautiful writing, great visualization.
Also fabulous characters in Three Pines, good mystery.
What a great series. This book starts off somewhat boring and plodding...the calm before the storm. It ends with the reader craving the next in the series. Wow!Published 11 days ago by Mary Beth Brown
