"A captivating, wintry whodunit." -PEOPLE

Blockbuster b
estselling author Louise Penny keeps readers eyes' glued to the page in Kingdom of the Blind, an "intriguing...and satisfying" (Publishers Weekly) novel about everyday life and ever-curious death in the village of Three Pines.

Why would a complete stranger name Detective Chief Armand Gamache one of the executors of her will? The will is so bizarre and includes such wildly unlikely bequests that Gamache suspects the woman was downright delusional. But what if, Gamache begins to ask himself, she was perfectly sane? When a dead body turns up in town, the terms of the will suddenly seem far more menacing.

"[An] intricately plotted escapist mystery."-Popsugar

Meanwhile, the investigation into the events that led to Gamache's suspension keeps deepening. Most of the opioids Gamache let slip though his hands-in order to bring down the big-city cartels-have been retrieved, but there is one devastating exception. Soon, he enters a race against time to locate the deadly missing drug. As he uses increasingly audacious, even desperate, measures to retrieve it, Gamache begins to see his own blind spots...and the terrible truth that may be hiding in plain sight.

Über den Autor Penny, Louise

LOUISE PENNY, 1958 in Toronto geboren, arbeitete nach ihrem Studium der Angewandten Kunst achtzehn Jahre lang als Rundfunkjournalistin und Moderatorin in ganz Kanada. Mit dem Schreiben begann sie erst spät. Ihr erster Roman Das Dorf in den roten Wäldern wurde 2005 weltweit als Entdeckung des Jahres gefeiert, und auch die folgenden Gamache-Krimis wurden vielfach ausgezeichnet und eroberten die Bestsellerlisten in zahlreichen Ländern. Louise Penny lebt in Sutton bei Québec, einem kleinen Städtchen, das Three Pines zum Verwechseln ähnelt. Weitere Fälle mit Armand Gamache sind im Kampa Verlag in Vorbereitung.

"A Better Man, with its mix of meteorological suspense, psychological insight and criminal pursuit, is arguably the best book yet in an outstanding, original oeuvre."-Tom Nolan, The Wall Street Journal

"Enchanting... one of his most ennobling missions."-Marilyn Stasio, New York Times Book Review

Catastrophic spring flooding, blistering attacks in the media, and a mysterious disappearance greet Chief Inspector Armand Gamache as he returns to the Sûreté du Québec in the latest novel by #1 New York Times bestselling author Louise Penny.

It's Gamache's first day back as head of the homicide department, a job he temporarily shares with his previous second-in-command, Jean-Guy Beauvoir. Flood waters are rising across the province. In the middle of the turmoil a father approaches Gamache, pleading for help in finding his daughter.

As crisis piles upon crisis, Gamache tries to hold off the encroaching chaos, and realizes the search for Vivienne Godin should be abandoned. But with a daughter of his own, he finds himself developing a profound, and perhaps unwise, empathy for her distraught father.

Increasingly hounded by the question, how would you feel..., he resumes the search.

As the rivers rise, and the social media onslaught against Gamache becomes crueler, a body is discovered. And in the tumult, mistakes are made.

In the next novel in this "constantly surprising series that deepens and darkens as it evolves" (New York Times Book Review), Gamache must face a horrific possibility, and a burning question.

What would you do if your child's killer walked free?
