Certain writers remain utterly reliable, utterly enchanting * Herald Sun * Excellent....a captivating whodunit plot, a clever fair-play clue concealed in plain view, and the deft use of humor to lighten the story's dark patches. On a deeper level, the crime provides a means for Penny's unusually empathic, all-too-fallible lead to unearth truths about human passions and weaknesses while avoiding simple answers * Publishers Weekly * Penny - who melds prose at once expressive and restrained with a keen understanding of human emotions - creates a novel that earns its title, a book that shines with the grace and compassion that stamp her work * Richmond Times Dispatch * Haunting, brilliant...Chief Inspector Gamache is one of my favourite characters in fiction * Linda Fairstein * Penny writes with grace and intelligence about complex people struggling with complex emotions. But her great gift is her uncanny ability to describe what might seem indescribable - the play of light, the sound of celestial music, a quiet sense of peace * New York Times * With enormous empathy for the troubled human soul - and an ending that makes your blood race and your heart break - Penny continues to raise the bar of her splendid series * People * For the reader, meanwhile, there's a final beautiful mystery to contemplate: How does Penny consistently write such luminous and compassionate books? * Seattle Times * An ingenious, gripping and elegantly written mystery... an utterly magical read * Irish Independent * Rich in character, language, humour and emotional tension, this is one of those books you immerse yourself in and miss once you've emerged * Morning Star * A pleasingly ambitious novel . . . this is a novel that places its faith in characterisation, atmosphere and the endlessly fascinating psychology of the human mind * Irish Times * Gripping * Daily Mail *
