All the Devils Are Here by Louise Penny
Genre/Categories/Setting: Contemporary Fiction, Mystery/Detective/Thriller, Paris
Welcome to Throwback Thursday where I highlight an older review or post a current review of an old read. Today, I’m re-sharing a story from a mystery/detective series, All the Devils Are Here by Louise Penny.
I’m linking up today with Davida @ The Chocolate Lady’s Book Review Blog for #throwbackthursday. Chief Inspector Armand Gamache is one of my favorite literary detectives and the imagined Canadian village of Three Pines is one of my favorite settings. Although each installment in this loosely connected series can be read as a stand-alone (with a satisfactory conclusion for the central case), each book is a richer reading experience when read in publication order because of the overall character arcs. Some installments I like better than others and this one is among my favorites.

The title references a line from the work of William Shakespeare: “Hell is empty, and all the devils are here.”
All the Devils Are Here, #16 in the Inspector Gamache Series, is set in Paris. The death of Armand Gamache’s godfather is made to look like an accident, but Gamache and his family suspect it is a deliberate murder. Soon the entire family is involved in searching for the truth, unraveling a web of lies and deceit, and facing danger from many directions. Can Gamache trust his beloved godfather? His son? His instincts? His past?
