*INSTANT #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER*

"Robert Bathurst is just about perfect delivering the 16th Chief Inspector Armand Gamache novel...Listen to all the Gamache audiobooks for maximum satisfaction." — AudioFile Magazine, Earphones Award winner

In All the Devils Are Here, 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.

Loved, loved, loved this book.
However...
Environmentalists absolutely DO HAVE CONSIDERABLE CONCERNS about nuclear power!!
Tricky thing called high-level nuclear waste that no one wants around. Not even us in the "barren wasteland" of Nevada.
Grrrrrrrrr.....
Colorado has NOT built a new nuclear power plant recently...!!!!!
www.eia.gov/tools/faqs/faq.php?id=228&t=21:
The average age of U.S. commercial nuclear power reactors that were operational as of October 31, 2020, was about 39 years. The oldest operating reactor is Nine Mile Point 1 in New York, which entered commercial service in December 1969. The newest reactor to enter service is Tennessee’s Watts Bar Unit 2, which began operation in June 2016.
Climate activists know that we can address extreme weather without nuclear power; there's way enough sun and wind to easily do the job. We just need the big power companies to get out of the way and the public utilities commissions to do their jobs.

A very refreshing change of pace, what with the Chief Inspector in Paris. We get Parisian restaurants, Parisian museums, Parisian food.

A bonus is Penny's referencing to the Parisian disdain for Canadian French, Canadian everything. That adds spice, as does the competitive and mysterious relationship between the French and Canadian law enforcement bodies.

The dynamic between Gamache and his son is also a new thread, and is was nicely done, counterpointed by Gamache-Beauvoir relationship.

The billionaire conceit seemed a bit implausible.

The "devils are here" allusions are overdone. Nous en avons déjà assez.

I always wait with great impatience for the next Louise Penny Three Pines mystery. This one is particularly great because it reunites the entire Gamache family - his wife, Reine-Marie, daughter Annie who is about to give birth, her husband ( Armand's former partner at the Sûreté du Québec ) Jean-Guy Beauvoir , and Daniel the estranged son. The mystery is a great page-turner as always, but the only better setting in the world for this series than the village of Three Pines is Paris. I loved knowing where they were when they walked the city and what they could see.... The ending is so great that I actually cried from both sorrow and joy. Loved it!!!!!!!!!!!!! Cannot recommend this series more highly - just start with the beginning. Kristi & Abby Tabby
