Ironically, for a community that has taken a vow of silence, the monks have become world-famous for their glorious voices, raised in ancient chants whose effect on both singer and listener is so profound it is known as "the beautiful mystery. There they discover disquiet beneath the silence, discord in the apparent harmony.
One of the brothers, in this life of prayer and contemplation, has been contemplating murder. As the peace of the monastery crumbles, Gamache is forced to confront some of his own demons, as wellas those roaming the remote corridors. Before finding the killer, before restoring peace, the Chief must first consider the divine, the human, and the cracks in between. Additional Product Features Dewey Edition. This heart-rending tale is a marvelous addition to Penny's acclaimed series.
Louise Penny’s mystery series moves from strength to strength
Fans won't be disappointed. Penny proves again that she is one of our finest writers. James, Ruth Rendell and Minette Walters, demonstrates an exquisite touch with characterization, plotting and artistic sensitivity. On a deeper level, the crime provides a means for Penny's unusually empathic, all-too-fallible lead to unearth truths about human passions and weaknesses while avoiding simple answers.
Chief Inspector Gamache is one of my favorite characters in fiction.
Here he must penetrate a cloistered monastery deep in the northern woods of Quebec, where a murdered monk is his ticket to get in. This is a tour-de-force for Penny, and a thrilling, intelligent read. A remarkably courageousand very beautifulbook that leaps the abyss between faith and despair.

The most illuminating analogies are not to other contemporary detective fiction but to The Name of the Rose and Murder in the Cathedral. Yes, indeed, and in the hands of the masterful Penny, the topic proves every bit as able to transfix readers as the chants do their listeners. A Trick of the Light will not only keep you engrossed from start to finish, it will teach you something new about love, truth, and the human heart.
