All the Devils Are Here
Paris. For the sixteenth installment in Louise Penny’s series featuring Quebec’s Chief Inspector Armand Gamache, the action moves from Canada to Paris, where Armand and his wife, Raine-Marie, have gone to await the birth of a new grandchild. In the novel titled, All the Devils Are Here, Armand is called on to use all his skills to solve a case with great personal impact. While many readers will miss the familiar setting of Three Pines in this installment, the action is delightfully complex, the twists surprising, and the resolution satisfying. Penny allows parallel development of the relationship between Armand and his son, Daniel; Armand and his godfather; and as always, the relationship between Armand and his son-in-law, Jean-Guy. Fans of this series will love the latest installment, and new readers who enjoy character-driven crime fiction that’s well-written can start here or with any other Gamache novel in this series.
