Product description

Review

Penny's elliptical style works brilliantly in a novel that combines modern-day police corruption with century-old tragedy ― Sunday Times

Brimming with atmosphere and steeped in soul-searching . . . Penny combines clever plotting with beautifully evocative descriptions ― Daily Express

Her work is rich with luminous prose, complex but uncluttered plots, and profound compassion ― Seattle Times

Chilling . . . Penny's skillful pacing and idiosyncratic characters only add to the suspense ― Real Simple

Deep and grand and altogether extraordinary . . . Miraculous. ― Washington Post

Artful . . . Powerful . . . Magical ― New York Times Book Review

A compelling mystery and a rich human drama in which no character is either entirely good or evil, and each is capable of inspiring empathy. ― Booklist (starred)

Riveting . . . with characters of incredible depth who only add to the strength of the plot. ― Library Journal

An exhilarating whodunit ― People

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 ― Peter James

Pacy and drips with atmosphereSaga
