A novel from the Inspector Gamache series. Louise Penny is a Canadian author of detective novels whose protagonist is Chief Inspector Armand Gamache of the Homicide Section of the Quebec Police. Louise Penny has won numerous awards for her novels, including the CWA New Blood Dagger, Arthur Ellis and Agatha (seven times) and was a finalist for the Edgar Award for Best Novel. In 2017, Louise Penny received the Order of Canada for her contribution to national culture. The same author also published “The long road to home”, “The place where the light comes” and “A better man” at Publishing House Trei.
A novel that starts slowly, then becomes bushy, with a complicated, even tangled action, many twists and turns, but with a bright ending, as in all the author’s books.
“Chief Inspector Armand Gamache from the Sûreté du Quebec – write the editors – this time investigates a case in Paris, where his godfather, billionaire Stephen Horowitz, is the victim of an attack. A bizarre key found in his possession sends Gamache to the most unexpected places — from the top of the Eiffel Tower to the bowels of Parisian archives, to luxury hotels or on the trail of coded works of art. He discovers documents and evidence kept for decades by his godfather, terrible secrets that can even change the map of the world. Soon, his entire family is caught in a web of lies and deception. To find out the truth, Gamache must decide if he can trust his friends and colleagues, his instincts and his past. In his family. Because devils hide even in the City of Lights.”
A young journalist discovers something in the mountains of Patagonia, she is killed, after which, without any apparent connection, accidents occur in different parts of the world where thousands of people die – planes that crash, elevators that fall into the void, trains that derail. And behind them, there seems to be a multi-national company in possession of billions, in whose management are co-opted former prime ministers, parliamentarians, diplomats, Nobel laureates, people without apparent blemishes and, of course, far from any suspicion of illegal conduct. “What is the difference between this and tobacco companies? And the pharmaceutical companies that continue to sell drugs even when they know they kill people? Airlines that continue to use planes they know are dangerous? Collapsing elevators? The nuclear power plants that come into operation? Engineers who continue to use defective, inferior materials? Governments giving up regulations for the sake of profit?” In the case of the novel we are reporting, it is about a rare metal, discovered in an abandoned mine in Patagonia, which can bring billions in profits to those who use it… People who do anything for money and power, including murder.”
