A MONASTERY

Hidden deep in the wilderness are the cloisters of two dozen monks - men of prayer and music, famous the world over for their glorious voices.

A MURDER

But a brutal death throws the monastery doors open to the world. And through them walks the only man who can shine light upon the dark deeds within: Chief Inspector Armand Gamache.

A MYSTERY

Who among the brothers has become an angel of death? As the peace of the monastery crumbles around him, Gamache finds clues in the divine, the human, and the cracks in between.

Ingenious, gripping, and powerful, The Beautiful Mystery is the most outstanding novel yet from international bestselling phenomenon Louise Penny.

Review:

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)
