Kingdom of the Blind

Drugs. The fourteenth novel in the Chief Inspector Gamache series by Louise Penny is titled, Kingdom of the Blind. While this installment can stand on its own, first time readers will understand context better by holding this book in queue while reading the last two installments. The action in this novel begins as Gamache remains suspended from his job pending an investigation. Dangerous drugs from the case that led to his suspension are about to hit the streets of Montreal. Gamache coolly implements a risky plan to save lives. Penny continues to develop interesting characters with this installment, and contrasts gritty city life with the tranquility of Three Pines. Crime fiction can become formulaic and is often poorly written. Penny crafts some of the best contemporary fiction in this genre and the current novel was a delight to read. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase Kingdom of the Blind from amazon.com.
