Product description

Review

Louise Penny twists and turns the plot expertly tripping the reader up just at the moment you think you might have solved the mystery - Daily Express

Clever, full of twists and turns . . . wonderfully satisfying - Kate Mosse

Penny's elegant style is deeply satisfying, while Gamache is contemplative even when under pressure, and remains a man you want to spend time - Metro

Subtle, elegant and beautifully written - Sunday Mirror --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Review

"Ms. Penny's books mix some classic elements of the police procedural with a deep-delving psychology, as well as a sorrowful sense of the precarious nature of human goodness, and the persistence of its opposite, even in rural Edens like Three Pines." --The New York Times

"Again and again, Louise Penny's Inspector Gamache series is Exhibit A for how to write a great crime novel, with each installment improving on the previous." --Sarah Weinman, National Post

"A counterintuitive and absorbing mystery from a superb author." --USA Today

"Penny, as always, creates a complex story about people dealing with complex emotional issues. And she does so with deeply drawn and ever-evolving characters, a sense of place that leaps from the pages and prose that invites multiple re-readings...A story that examines the making of art and the struggles of artists, The Long Way Home is itself a work of art, a novel that transcends genre, engages heart and mind and, like all of Penny's work, leaves the reader awestruck by the depth of her skills and the decency of her spirit." --Richmond Times-Dispatch

"Penny tells powerful stories of damage and healing in the human heart, leavened with affection, humor and - thank goodness - redemption." --The Charlotte Observer

"As with all the author's other titles, Penny wraps her mystery around the history and personality of the people involved. By this point in the series, each inhabitant of Three Pines is a distinct individual, and the humor that lights the dark places of the investigation is firmly rooted in their long friendships, or, in some cases, frenemyships. The heartbreaking conclusion will leave series readers blinking back tears." --Library Journal (starred review)

"Penny dexterously combines suspense with psychological drama, overlaying the whole with an all-powerful sense of landscape as a conduit to meaning...Another gem from the endlessly astonishing Penny." --Booklist (starred review)

"Perceptive . . . perfectly paced . . . Penny offers real insight into the evolution of artistic style as well as the envy that artists feel about each other's success . . . . The prose is remarkable fresh, filled with illumination and delightful turns of phrase." --Publishers Weekly

"Penny develops the story behind Peter's disappearance at a slow, masterful pace, revealing each layer of the mystery alongside an introspective glance at Gamache and his comrades, who can all sympathize with Peter's search for purpose. The emotional depth accessed here is both a wonder and a joy to uncover.." --Kirkus Reviews

--This text refers to the paperback edition.
