No one does atmospheric quite like Louise Penny. Kingdom of the Blind tackles some tough contemporary issues whilst retaining the timeless small-town charm of Three Pines. A wonderful addition to a fantastic series
The premise is an intriguing one . . . I loved the setting. A welcome return to Three Pines and its inhabitants.
This starts as a small-town mystery and becomes something grander and more frightening; Penny has upped her thrills-to-pain au chocolat ratio
This gloriously shocking book grips from the very first page and spans centuries and continents, worlds and underworlds. Louise Penny is one of the greatest crime writers of our times
A captivating, wintry whodunnit
A highlight of the year . . . an extraordinary series
Outstanding . . . a constantly surprising series that deepens and darkens as it evolves
Kingdom of the Blind is an ingenious mystery that follows a thoughtful group of beloved characters navigating their way through a fallen world. What more could a mystery reader - or any reader for that matter - want?
Penny, as ever, skifully juxtaposes the supreme cosiness of the Quebec village of Three Pines, this time in the grip of a freezing winter, and the horrors of drugs and prostition on the streets of Montreal. Supremely satisfying.
A gritty and interesting crime novel
Great characters and a highly original plot make this a fine read
