September 2013 Indie Next List
“A new Inspector Gamache novel by Louise Penny is always something to anticipate, and How the Light Gets In does not disappoint, even as the nuanced and mercurial Gamache is getting older and perhaps, slightly weary of cleaning up the riffraff in Quebec. As the holidays approach and Gamache looks forward to a family trip to France, a long-term plot by those at the very top to get Gamache out of the way once and for all, the murder of the last living Ouellet quintet, and a mysterious suicide intertwine in a complex and satisfying plot that never gives itself away.”
