Crime & mystery

Reissue of the eleventh atmospheric and ingenious crime thriller novel featuring Chief Inspector Armand Gamache, from number one New York Times bestselling author, Louise Penny

'One of the most interesting detectives in crime fiction' THE TIMES

There is more to solving a crime than following the clues.
Welcome to Chief Inspector Gamache's world of facts and feelings.

Hardly a day goes by when nine-year-old Laurent Lepage doesn't cry wolf. His boundless sense of adventure and vivid imagination mean he has a tendency to concoct stories so extraordinary and so far-fetched that no one can possibly believe him.

But when Laurent disappears, former Chief Inspector Armand Gamache is faced with the possibility that one of his tall tales might have been true.

So begins a frantic search for the boy and the truth. And what Gamache uncovers deep in the forest leads back to crimes of the past, betrayal and murder, with more sinister consequences than anyone could have possibly imagined . . .

Ten million readers.
Three pines.
One inimitable Chief Inspector Gamache.
