How the Light Gets In
I absolutely love Chief Inspector Gamache! How the Light Gets in is Louise Penny's ninth mystery featuring Chief Inspector Gamache. With this novel, Penny ties up some of the loose ends that were left from previous novels.
Gamache finds himself isolated from his department and questioning the motives of his superiors. In addition, Jean Guy Beauvior, his second in command has deserted him and the love of his life, Annie Gamache. Gamache finds solace in Three Pines among the quirky townsfolk while he solves the murder of Constance Pineault, a friend of Myrna's. He also finds a way to solve the larger mystery of corruption in the Surete du Quebec.
If you haven't read Louise Penny, you won't be disappointed. Her books are wonderful character studies within a mystery. You will want to start with the first in the series and read all the way through. I can't wait until the next one comes out.
