All the Devils Are Here


Louise Penny has gone from strength to strength since winning the Creasey Dagger for her first book in the Three Pines series, Still Life, garnering massive praise from crime fiction fans and winning so many awards it’s hard to keep track. But I think this is down to her very different way of going about things. You can’t quite put your finger on it; her style is like something you see out of the corner of your eye that’s unexplained and just a bit off, but in a good and interesting way. Her writing is sublime, and her characters and the Three Pines setting have everyone wanting to live there and hang out with them, despite the murders and recently very corrupt and dangerous waters of the police force that her main character Armand Gamache comes up against.

And in this latest book she’s mixing it up even more by taking her characters, and us, to Paris; very different to the idylls of Quebec – apart from the French thing and all. So sit back and find out what the latest is in store in the wonderful world that Louise Penny creates.
