Advance Praise for Louise Penny's "The Beautiful Mystery"

"Louise Penny has crafted an almost perfect crime--haunting, puzzling, brilliant and indeed a most beautiful mystery. Chief Inspector Gamache is one of my favorite characters in fiction. Here he must penetrate a cloistered monastery deep in the northern woods of Quebec, where a murdered monk is his ticket to get in. This is a tour-de-force for Penny, and a thrilling, intelligent read." --Linda Fairstein

"A. Ma. Zing! A remarkably courageous--and very beautiful--book that leaps the abyss between faith and despair." --Diana Gabaldon
