GLASS HOUSES

The Gulf Today - Panorama - - Books - By Louise Penny by Ti­mothy Fer­riss by Pete Souza by Wal­ter Isaac­son by Chip Gaines by Joe Bi­den by Guin­ness World Records by O’reilly/dugard by Ron Ch­er­now

In the most in­trigu­ing in­stal­ment yet chron­i­cling Que­bec’s Chief In­spec­tor Ar­mand Ga­mache and the quirky cit­i­zens of Three Pines, Louise Penny deftly com­bines crime and pun­ish­ment, a time­less avenger and a dark ex­plo­ration of the con­science.

Three Pines, of­ten bring­ing to mind Twin Peaks with its odd in­hab­i­tants, is one day haunted by a dark, cloaked, masked fig­ure stand­ing as a silent sen­try over the town. As the top po­lice official, Ga­mache en­coun­ters this voice­less pres­ence, but lack­ing any de­ter­mi­na­tion of threat or cause for ar­rest, he takes no ac­tion. Un­til a vil­lage vis­i­tor’s body is found.

What fol­lows is a great and twist­ing tale, as we’ve come to ex­pect from the pre­vi­ous 12 Ga­mache nov­els, but also an ex­plo­ration of moral judg­ments, men­tal frailty and the eerie no­tion of reck­on­ing: We all must pay our debts. Fans will be glued to Ga­mache’s strug­gle as he tes­ti­fies at the sus­pected killer’s trial and where those com­plex­i­ties lead. Ga­mache him­self, it seems, is also on trial in his own head. It’s a pro­found story, with all the warmth of steam­ing cof­fee drinks in the town bistro and the bit­ter cold of death and de­cay of the con­science. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10.
