Louise Penny

Una novela a la vez atmosferica y llena de suspense; la mas ingeniosa de Louise Penny hasta la fecha. Felizmente retirado en el idilico pueblo de Three Pines, el inspector jefe Armand Gamache ha hallado un remanso de paz dificil de imaginar. Pero la monotona placidez de la lectura y la felicidad del sol matutino se truncan cuando Clara Morrow le cuenta que Peter, su marido, ha incumplido la promesa de volver a casa un ano despues de su separacion y le pide ayuda para encontrarlo. A medida que Gamache se sumerge en el caso, tambien lo hace en la torturada mente de Peter Morrow, un pintor tan desesperado por recuperar su fama que seria capaz de vender su alma al diablo. Junto con su antiguo segundo al mando, Jean-Guy Beauvoir, y Myrna Landers, emprende un viaje que los llevara cada vez mas lejos de Three Pines, hasta la desembocadura del rio San Lorenzo, para acabar descubriendo un rastro mortal de envidia y engano que pondra su vida en peligro. Decima entrega de la extraordinaria serie protagonizada por Armand Gamache que ha cautivado a mas de once millones de lectores en todo el mundo, El largo camino a casa es una penetrante investigacion psicologica sobre la creacion y la lucha de los artistas consigo mismos y con su obra. Una novela atmosferica, tensa y vertiginosa a un tiempo; sin duda, la mas ingeniosa de Louise Penny hasta la fecha. Una obra de arte que trasciende el genero, atrapa de principio a fin y, como todos los libros de Penny, deja al lector deslumbrado. - Richmond Times-Dispatch. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION A #1 New York Times Bestseller, Louise Penny’s The Long Way Home is an intriguing Chief Inspector Gamache Novel. Happily retired in the village of Three Pines, Armand Gamache, former Chief Inspector of Homicide with the Surete du Quebec, has found a peace he’d only imagined possible. On warm summer mornings he sits on a bench holding a small book, The Balm in Gilead, in his large hands. There is a balm in Gilead, his neighbor Clara Morrow reads from the dust jacket, to make the wounded whole. While Gamache doesn’t talk about his wounds and his balm, Clara tells him about hers. Peter, her artist husband, has failed to come home. Failed to show up as promised on the first anniversary of their separation. She wants Gamache’s help to find him. Having finally found sanctuary, Gamache feels a near revulsion at the thought of leaving Three Pines. There’s power enough in Heaven, he finishes the quote as he contemplates the quiet village, to cure a sin-sick soul. And then he gets up. And joins her. Together with his former second-in-command, Jean-Guy Beauvoir, and Myrna Landers, they journey deeper and deeper into Quebec. And deeper and deeper into the soul of Peter Morrow. A man so desperate to recapture his fame as an artist, he would sell that soul. And may have. The journey takes them further and further from Three Pines, to the very mouth of the great St. Lawrence river. To an area so desolate, so damned, the first mariners called it the land God gave to Cain. And there they discover the terrible damage done by a sin-sick soul.
