The Brutal Telling (Inspector Gamache #5) by Louise Penny - My Thoughts

The Brutal Telling (Chief Inspector Armand Gamache #5) - Louise Penny

Best one yet!


With this book, I think Louise Penny is now my favourite mystery author, just bypassing Barbara Hambly (Benjamin January Mysteries).


We're back in Three Pines and this book, #5, will rip your heart out.  At least it did mine. Louise Penny is not afraid to let her characters experience life in all its myriads of facets. They are so beautifully flawed, each and every one of them.  


They mystery had me going and I still don't believe we've solved it.  So much so that I went and bought the next in the series (the only one I was missing.  I have 7 - 12 but unread.) the minute after I turned the last page.  And I'm reading it right away... something I very, very, very seldom do these days.


I really wish I could write a proper review of this book because it was SO SO SO good, but alas, that does not lie within my talents.  Just read the books and read them in order because the character arcs of the regulars are just AMAZING!


HIGHLY recommended!
