Convocato all'improvviso in una fattoria nei pressi di Three Pines, Armand Gamache, capo della Sûreté du Québec, scopre di essere stato nominato esecutore testamentario da una sconosciuta baronessa. Il documento contiene clausole tanto bizzarre da far sospettare al commissario che si tratti di uno scherzo, ma di lì a qualche giorno, quando nella fattoria viene rinvenuto il cadavere di un uomo, la realtà dei fatti emerge in tutta la sua gravità. Nel frattempo un enorme carico di droga sta per inondare le strade di Montréal, e Gamache, sospeso dal servizio sei mesi prima proprio per non averlo fermato, deve decidere al più presto come agire.

Unfortunately I have finished. I tried to make it last as long as possible, reading it slowly, even though I wanted to rush to the end. Three Pines, such picturesque village, I would love to live there, if it was real of course. I mentioned that to someone and they said, Yes, but they have alot of m Leggi tutto
It is always a joy to return to Three Pines and its eccentric and offbeat residents, and this is a blisteringly brilliant addition to the Detective Armand Gamache series. Gamache has been suspended as the Head of the Surete du Quebec, a result of the fallout from his last case. His son-in-law, Jean- Leggi tutto

4✚ 🦆🦆🦆🦆 “Fuck, fuck, fuck.” Admit it fans. When you finish the last page and the road to Three Pines is closed until another winter comes, quoting Rosa is the only way to assuage our anguish. It is currently very cold in Three Pines. So cold that Reine-Marie and others can be heard muttering “Why do Leggi tutto
Louis Penny is back on track as one of the finest mystery writers with Kingdom of the Blind - #14 in the Chief Inspector Armand Gamache series. One of my first GR friends, Susan from Argyle, Texas, recommended this series back in 2013. I decided to give it a go and started with How the Light Gets In Leggi tutto
Buckle up, people! I have many, many thoughts about this book, and series in general, and Louise Penny. 1. The beginning of this book is strong. As always. One of Louise Penny's strengths is her beginnings. She sucks you right into the story with the characters, the mystery, the unknown. Everything f Leggi tutto
What an excellent read! Thank you Louise Penny for bringing Armand back to us - for a while there it looked as though it might not happen. Kingdom of the Blind has everything we expect from a Three Pines novel. Gamache is his normal understanding, calm, all knowing self - and of course as usual, he
"We are only as blind as we want to be." (Maya Angelou) And with that Louise Penny opens her captivating novel with the nooks and cranies of what appears to be truth on the surface but bears the scales of something far more devious below. Is it shadowy eyes that mirror the heart or the heart that mir Leggi tutto
“In the kingdom of the blind, the one eyed man is king.” The Armand Gamache series is one of my absolute favorites. The books are much deeper than a typical mystery. It’s always about the why, not the how. Continuing the story from the prior book, a load of deadly opiates is missing in Quebec. Gamache Leggi tutto
“In the kingdom of the blind, the one-eyed man is king” The Three Pines series is a favorite series of mine, and the village is a character in itself. In Penny’s own words the books are about “...the common yearning for community. For belonging. They’re about kindness, acceptance. Gratitude.” Wisdom Leggi tutto
