Publisher's Summary

Hardly a day goes by when nine-year-old Laurent Lepage doesn't cry wolf. His boundless sense of adventure and vivid imagination mean he has a tendency to concoct stories so extraordinary and so far-fetched that no one can possibly believe him.
But when Laurent disappears, former Chief Inspector Armand Gamache is faced with the possibility that one of his tall tales might have been true.
So begins a frantic search for the boy and the truth. And what Gamache uncovers deep in the forest leads back to crimes of the past, betrayal and murder, with more sinister consequences than anyone could have possibly imagined....
From number-one best seller Louise Penny comes an ingenious, powerful and thrilling title that will hold you in its grip until the final word.


What the Critics Say

"Clever, full of twists and turns, a wonderfully satisfying - and moving - addition to Penny's atmospheric, distinctive series." (Kate Mosse on How the Light Gets In)
"Subtle, elegant and beautifully written." (Sunday Mirror on How the Light Get In)
"Penny's elegant style is deeply satisfying, while Gamache is contemplative even when under pressure, and remains a man you want to spend time with." (Metro)

I have loved every single book in this series. All different and yet all with the power to make me think beyond the story. I thoroughly recommend these books.

The narration is worthy of the author - an exceptional combination.
