Glass Houses

Gripping, surprising and powerful, Glass Houses is the new ingenious and illuminating novel from number one bestseller, Louise Penny, which will leave you spellbound until the final page.

One cold November day, a mysterious figure appears on the village green in Three Pines, causing unease, alarm and confusion among everyone who sees it. Chief Superintendent, Armand Gamache knows something is seriously wrong, but all he can do is watch and wait, hoping his worst fears are not realised. But when the figure disappears and a dead body is discovered, it falls to Gamache to investigate.

In the early days of the murder inquiry, and months later, as the trial for the accused begins, Gamache must face the consequences of his decisions, and his actions, from which there is no going back . . .

Kirkus Reviews
Penny's latest is one of her best ever. This is the perfect holiday weekend book.
Globe & Mail
Glass Houses, along with many of the other Gamache books, is so compelling that . . . what's going on in the world outside the novel is just noise.
Washington Post
On all counts, Glass Houses succeeds brilliantly, full of elegant prose, intricate plots, and - most of all - Penny's moving, emotionally complex hero and his circle of friends and colleagues.
