"Simply outstanding... Penny's gift for intelligent and transcendent storytelling delivers light, bringing themes of forgiveness and redemption to society's darker moments." --Christian Science Monitor

"Penny delves into the nature of evil, sensitively exploring the impact of the dreadful events she describes while bringing a warmth and humanity to her disparate cast of characters that, unusually for a crime novel, leaves you feeling better about the world once you've finished."--The Guardian

"Another superb achievement... Penny weaves together all these narratives--the
series of modern-day killings, the decade-old bludgeoning murder and the haunting artwork that has remained shrouded in mystery across the centuries--with a master's deft hand." --BookPage (starred review)

"For Penny, the novel is a narrative tour de force, drawing brilliantly on some dark moments in Québec history and leading Gamache and the residents of Three Pines to a hard-won, thoroughly unsentimental recognition that forgiveness is our most powerful magic." --Booklist (starred review)

"Virtuoso... blends nuanced characterization with nail-biting suspense...This tale of forgiveness and redemption will resonate with many." --Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Penny's 18th Gamache novel is intense as the detective digs deep into his own fears. The darkness in this intricately plotted story forces readers to search for contrasting moments of hope." --Library Journal (starred review, and Pick of the Month)
