Kingdom of the Blind

Kingdom of the Blind

The entrancing new crime thriller featuring Chief Inspector Armand Gamache, from number one New York Times bestselling author Louise Penny

When Armand Gamache receives a letter inviting him to an abandoned farmhouse outside of Three Pines, the former head of the Sûreté du Québec discovers that a complete stranger has named him as an executor of her will.

Armand never knew the elderly woman, and the bequests are so wildly unlikely that he suspects the woman must have been delusional - until a body is found, and the terms of the bizarre will suddenly seem far more menacing.

But it isn't the only menace Gamache is facing. The investigation into the events that led to his suspension has dragged on, and Armand is taking increasingly desperate measures to rectify previous actions. As he does, Armand Gamache begins to see his own blind spots - and the terrible things hiding there.

Praise for the award-winning Chief Inspector Armand Gamache series:

'One of the most interesting detectives in crime fiction' The Times

'Fascinating characters, a twisty plot and wonderful surprise endings' Ann Cleeves

'Wonderfully satisfying' Kate Mosse
