The Beautiful Mystery: A Chief Inspector Gamache Novel

The Beautiful Mystery - Louise Penny Louise Penny's books might involves the police but it is the meditation and reflection of life and death itself that makes them powerful and lifts them above the pigeonhole of genre.
It would not be a disservice to Eco's Name of the Rose to couple it with this book. Such is the power of mortal contraptions such as words to move one closer to god and nearer to murder. A beautiful, thoughtful thriller.
