Glass Houses by Louise Penny

Glass Houses
by Louise Penny [Penny] 

In the latest Penny novel, Armand Gamache is now the Chief Superintendent of the Sûreté du Québec. He and his wife are celebrating All Hallows Eve in Three Pines when a figure dressed in dark appears on the village green. When confronted the person refuses to respond. Gamache points out unless a law is broken the person had the right to stand there. The figure inspires fear in the small village and soon a death occurs.

Though Gamache is not in charge of the investigation he can’t help but work to uncover why the person was costumed as they were and why they came to Three Pines. Many months later Gamache comes to a turning point, once he’s crossed the line he can never go back.

This book is one of Louise Penny’s best books. Throughout the series, these Canadian police procedurals encompass all the genres from a small town cozy to a political thriller.

[If you enjoy this, you may also wish to try the works of Deborah Crombie, Charles Todd, or Ann Cleeves.]
