“A captivating, wintry whodunit.” ―PEOPLE

Blockbuster bestselling author Louise Penny keeps readers eyes’ glued to the page in Kingdom of the Blind, an “intriguing...and satisfying” (Publishers Weekly) novel about everyday life and ever-curious death in the village of Three Pines.

Why would a complete stranger name Detective Chief Armand Gamache one of the executors of her will? The will is so bizarre and includes such wildly unlikely bequests that Gamache suspects the woman was downright delusional. But what if, Gamache begins to ask himself, she was perfectly sane? When a dead body turns up in town, the terms of the will suddenly seem far more menacing.

“[An] intricately plotted escapist mystery.”―Popsugar

Meanwhile, the investigation into the events that led to Gamache’s suspension keeps deepening. Most of the opioids Gamache let slip though his hands―in order to bring down the big-city cartels―have been retrieved, but there is one devastating exception. Soon, he enters a race against time to locate the deadly missing drug. As he uses increasingly audacious, even desperate, measures to retrieve it, Gamache begins to see his own blind spots...and the terrible truth that may be hiding in plain sight.

Review:

One of Publishers Weekly Booksellers' Favorite 25 Titles of the Year in 2018

“Penny pulls together an insightful plot that weaves in family feuds, clandestine investigations, undercover cops and a loving look at Three Pines.” ―Oline Cogdill, South Florida Sun Sentinel

“Louise Penny’s novels are unique for how seamlessly they straddle the line between charmingly small-town mysteries and big-city police procedurals . . . It’s not to be missed!” ―BookPage (Top Pick)

“It’s hard to see how Louise Penny can raise the stakes any further for her iconic, fatherly good guy, Chief Inspector Armand Gamache, but somehow in each book she does.” ―News & Observer

Brain-teasing puzzles, life-and-death stakes and lots of Three Pines, a magical place where the warmth in the villagers’ hearts thaws the ice on their eyelashes.”―St. Louis Post Dispatch

“Complex ongoing saga... Wait anxiously for the next installment.”―Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Penny does a splendid job of interweaving those three main plot lines, studding them with several life-threatening scenes that had me holding my breath, and building to a wild finale.”―Tampa Bay Tribune

“Nimble sleight-of-hand plotting, strong characters, profound compassion and luminous prose are hallmarks of Penny’s novels. Although darker than previous books, this new entry is no exception.”―Seattle Times

Another intricately plotted escapist mystery from Louise Penny.”―PopSugar

“A Louise Penny book... is better than 90% of the books I read... Her books are about love and kindness and people who care.”―Lesa’s Book Critiques

“From small puzzles do large, ever-more excellent ones grown, especially in a Louise Penny novel.”―Seattle Review of Books

“Few mystery writers intertwine the personal lives of their characters with the crimes being investigated more skillfully than Penny does, and she is at her best here, as several key players face turning points in their lives, suggesting that if the past can strangle the present, it can also help clear the way for the future.”―Booklist (Starred Review)

“Penny is a master at blending the modern evils affecting the big city and hidden secrets of the almost mythical village of Three Pines. Well-known characters return and new faces add richness to a narrative that will keep readers intrigued until the last page.” ―Library Journal (Starred Review)

“Insightful, well-plotted... Penny offers intriguing commentary on the willful blindness that can keep people from acknowledging the secrets and lies in their own lives. Penny wraps up some continuing story lines and sends recurring characters in surprising directions.” ―Publishers Weekly

“Penny reveals a deeper vulnerability in the introspective Gamache... The ending is adrenaline-filled....This starts as a small-town mystery and becomes something grander.” ―Kirkus Reviews

"I thoroughly enjoyed Kingdom of the Blind. It’s always a treat to spend a few days with Armand Gamache and his latest investigation is one of my favorites." ―James Patterson
