Reviews

Praise for A Better Man

"'A Better Man, ' with its mix of meteorological suspense, psychological insight and criminal pursuit, is arguably the best book yet in an outstanding, original oeuvre." --Tom Nolan, Wall Street Journal

"Enchanting...one of [Gamache's] more ennobling missions." --Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review

"Pensive and moral Quebec police inspector Armand Gamache is justly beloved, and Penny's evocative prose is unfailingly admirable." --Seattle Times

"The deeper reward lies in how the books probe the psyches of Gamache, his family and colleagues, as well as this circle of small-town bohemians, the author picking off her characters, psychologically at least, one by one." --The Globe and Mail

The appeal of this series and especially of Gamache himself has always been Penny's ability to show her hero moving from the tangible, brutal facts of murder to the emotions within, the stories in the blood. There are multiple stories, often contradictory, to be found in the many-tentacled web of human tragedy and suffering that Gamache teases to the surface in this moving exploration of ties that both bind and destroy. --Booklist, starred review

Wrenching... Penny explores the depths of human emotion, both horrifying and sublime. Her love for her characters and for the mystical village of Three Pines is apparent on every page.--Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Penny's lyrical writing opens up Gamache's soul-searching in an almost poetic way. A Better Man, it turns out, isn't so much a novel to wrap up certain story lines in this 14-book series, but one to breathe new life into them." -- Minneapolis Star Tribune

"This title brings several character arcs to a close while resetting others to make this psychological mystery serve both as a beginning for new readers and a satisfying continuation for series fans. Gamache is an explorer of the human psyche, and the care he takes with the victims, their friends and family, as well as his own allows this series and his character continually to surprise, delight, and enthrall. Highly recommended for lovers of psychological, character-driven mysteries. --Library Journal, starred review
