Read Glass Houses (Chief Inspector Armand Gamache, #13) Online Free - When a mysterious figure appears on the village green on a cold November day in Three Pines, Armand Gamache, now Chief Superintendent of the Sûreté du Québec, knows something is seriously wrong. Yet he does nothing. Legally, what can he do? Only watch and wait. And hope his mounting fears are not realized.
From the moment its shadow falls over Three Pines, Gamache suspects the creature has deep roots and a dark purpose. When it suddenly vanishes and a body is discovered, it falls to Gamache to discover if a debt has been paid or levied.
In the early days of the investigation into the murder, and months later, as the trial for the accused begins in a Montreal courtroom on a steamy day in July, the Chief Superintendent continues to struggle with actions he’s set in motion, from which there is no going back. “This case began in a higher court,” he tells the judge, “and it’s going to end there.”
And regardless of the trial’s outcome, he must face his own conscience.
In her latest utterly gripping book, number-one New York Times bestselling author Louise Penny shatters the conventions of the crime novel to explore what Gandhi called the court of conscience. A court that supersedes all others.

The less said the better since I don't want to give anything away, so my review will be very brief. I will say fans of this series will not be disappointed, this one may well be the best so far. A hard thing to accomplish in series of this length. Gamache will put everything on the line. Somethin...

So you’re a fan and you’re starting to get stressed.
How much longer can the author keep our hero sustainable?
Or perhaps you’re superstitious and thinking #13 could mean bad luck rather than a baker’s dozen.
How many murders can one small town suffer?
How many times can you enjoy a cafe...

No murder. No Gamache.
The Cobrador: A tall, hooded figure robed in the midnight hour of black takes its position in the village center of Three Pines. The chilled November wind swirls around this individual who neither moves nor gestures to another soul.

It pains me to do this, as this is one of my favorite series, but I can't give it more than 2.5 stars (fair).
With a new Penny book I settle in to spend time with my favorite characters in the quaint village of Three Pines. The books have always been as much of a character study as a mystery, and...

It's that time of year again, Armand. Labour Day weekend, and we get to spend a couple of days together...
Last year, I went gaga over Louise Penny's annual dose of Armand Gamache and the folks in Three Pines. This year's fare was lovely, but I can't quite give it f...

I was disappointed in the first half of this book. There are strangers in Three Pines. Anton is a dishwasher working in the bistro, and Jacqueline works in the boulangerie even though her talent does not include making baguettes. There are also two married couples, including Lea who has known Myr...

What a disappointment. I’ve enjoyed this series from the start but the last two books have been so far fetched. The previous book was about the small town, Three Pines, finding a huge war cannon in their forest, and Glass Houses, is about conscience. I dislike it when a series goes way off the ma...

In this installment of the Inspector Gamache series, he tackles the drug cartels and the fentanyl crisis (which we are reminded frequently kills 50 people for every kilo sold) all out of the seemingly peaceful sanctity of Three Pines. Meanwhile, a disturbing, hooded figure takes up residence on t...

It was the month of November. Conscience, the Cobrador, entered Three Pines, and with the unseemly rainy, sleety weather for days, which seemed to seep right through the clothing, skin and pooled in the bones, quarrels broke out in the bistro over trivial things. They haven't seen the sun...
