"The 16th novel by #1 bestselling author Louise Penny finds Chief Inspector Armand Gamache of the Sûreté du Quebec investigating a sinister plot in the City of Light On their first night in Paris, the Gamaches gather as a family for a bistro dinner with Armand's godfather, the billionaire Stephen Horowitz. Walking home together after the meal, they watch in horror as Stephen is knocked down and critically injured in what Gamache knows is no accident, but a deliberate attempt on the elderly man's life. When a strange key is found in Stephen's possession it sends Armand, his wife Reine-Marie, and his former second-in-command at the Sûreté, Jean-Guy Beauvoir, from the top of the Tour d'Eiffel, to the bowels of the Paris Archives, from luxury hotels to odd, coded, works of art. It sends them deep into the secrets Armand's godfather has kept for decades. A gruesome discovery in Stephen's Paris apartment makes it clear the secrets are more rancid, the danger far greater and more imminent, than they realized. Soon the whole family is caught up in a web of lies and deceit. In order to find the truth, Gamache will have to decide whether he can trust his friends, his colleagues, his instincts, his own past. His own family. For even the City of Light casts long shadows. And in that darkness devils hide"--

Though I love Louise Penny's books, I could not get into this story or enjoy the characters.

The Ganache family gather in Paris where Armand's son and daughter live. After dining with his godfather, Stephen Horowitz, they see him struck by a car in an attempted murder. Thus begins a tale of powerful, corrupt people that draw in the family, posing the question: Whom do you trust?

Not her best but was a good read. Not sure why the "F" word was used so much. I did love Idola being introduced and actually loved that Stephen was a surprise in the ending.

All of her books about the Gamaches are great--but I found this one really a fantastic read! I read ALOT, and this is the first time I've actually taken the time to write a review. I'm not going to give away anything about this story, but if you enjoy reading interesting & exciting stories you should take the time to read this one.

Always a pleasure to read, enjoyed the Paris setting

I truly loved the book until the end. I thought the ending was so unrealistic and didn't think the author needed to make it "all better" for her readers. I still enjoyed all the characters, the settings and this one had a lot of action.

Not my favourite book of hers. I found it rather boring and had to push myself to finish. The plot was far-fetched. She didn't make Paris sound very interesting and I rather missed the Canadian setting.

This is my favourite Louise Penny book! While interesting at first, I found it tedious in her other books to be spending so much time in Three Pines with all of its 'colourful' characters. I particularly got tired of reading page after page about how the gang regularly meets in the bistro to gorge themselves.

In setting the book in Paris and shaking off Three Pines (for the moment), I think Louise Penny has written her best Gamache novel so far. Particularly enjoyable was how she brought the whole Gamache family together in this book, so you can really see the interplay between the family members.

And, as a mystery, it's great. She keeps matters vague enough so you are wondering, page after page, who to trust. A great ending!

I enjoyed this book as much as her others, but I missed the village of Three Pines and its collection of interesting characters. Thank heavens they came back!!
