A Better Man by Louise Penny Book Summary

“‘A Better Man,' with its mix of meteorological suspense, psychological insight and criminal pursuit, is arguably the best book yet in an outstanding, original oeuvre.” —Tom Nolan, The Wall Street Journal

"Enchanting... one of his most ennobling missions." —Marilyn Stasio, New York Times Book Review

Catastrophic spring flooding, blistering attacks in the media, and a mysterious disappearance greet Chief Inspector Armand Gamache as he returns to the Sûreté du Québec in the latest novel by #1 New York Times bestselling author Louise Penny.

It’s Gamache’s first day back as head of the homicide department, a job he temporarily shares with his previous second-in-command, Jean-Guy Beauvoir. Flood waters are rising across the province. In the middle of the turmoil a father approaches Gamache, pleading for help in finding his daughter.

As crisis piles upon crisis, Gamache tries to hold off the encroaching chaos, and realizes the search for Vivienne Godin should be abandoned. But with a daughter of his own, he finds himself developing a profound, and perhaps unwise, empathy for her distraught father.

Increasingly hounded by the question, how would you feel…, he resumes the search.

As the rivers rise, and the social media onslaught against Gamache becomes crueler, a body is discovered. And in the tumult, mistakes are made.

In the next novel in this “constantly surprising series that deepens and darkens as it evolves” (New York Times Book Review), Gamache must face a horrific possibility, and a burning question.

What would you do if your child’s killer walked free?

A Better Man (Louise Penny) Book Reviews

A Better ManThis author has a strange writing style which includes many one and two word sentences. These are grammatically incorrect..Score: 3/5

Not a Better BookI have loved Louise Penny’s books, but this one ran around in circles biting it’s tail until it fell over from exhaustion. Not her best; let’s hope it’s her worst..Score: 2/5

A Better Man ReviewI just finished reading Louise Penny's new novel, A Better Man, and as always I found it delightful and engaging. I am concerned though that Jean Guy might not be in the next novel, fighting crime and identifying murderers. It would not be the same without him by Gamache's side!!.Score: 5/5

A Better ManLoved it!!!!.Score: 5/5

A Better ManNever disappointed in this series. Each book unfolds more about each of the characters . Not perfect. Each growing. Sometimes stepping back so as to move forward. Kept me riveted and when finished being sorry it was over. Can hardly wait for the next look into Three Pines! to.Score: 5/5

Continuing to love Three PinesThis book continues my love for Three Pines. I’m so happy to have a new installment of adventures of Armand Gamache and Jean-Guy Beauvoir. Another great story with twists and turns. I feel like I’m spending time with so many dear, old friends..Score: 5/5

Love Inspector GamacheHave read and re-read Louise Penny’s novels about Three Pines and Inspector Gamache. It’s a wonderful world to be taken into - the twists and turns of each murder and the characters are so well written. I really enjoyed reading The Better Man and that Inspector Gamache has solved the crime and rescued another dog, lucky Fred..Score: 5/5
