A Trick Of The Light

The New York Times Bestseller

‘Stellar . . . With her smart plot and fascinating, nuanced characters, Penny proves again that she is one of our finest writers’ (People Magazine)

In the green depths of spring, morning breaks on a woman splayed in a bed of flowers – her eyes wide, her neck broken.

Her death is a mystery; so is the woman herself. But as Chief Inspector Armand Gamache and his team peer into the dark corners of the victim’s past, they expose a secret that rots at the very heart of their community – a secret that will implicate someone they’ve trusted for years. And as Gamache knows too well, in the flickering shadows of death, the truth may be just a trick of the light.

Reviews

A commanding and artful performance . . . For connoisseurs of mysteries, success is judged by the genre's holy trinity: plot, people and prose. When all three attain excellence, a fourth quality shines through: power . . . what lifts her work to the highest plane is the deep sense of humanity with which she invests her novels, and A TRICK OF THE LIGHT satisfies and surpasses that standard

Louise Penny's writing is intricate, beautiful and compelling. She is an original voice, a distillation of both PD James and Barbara Vine at their peaks and a worthy successor to both
