Searching for a missing woman amid a catastrophic flood and blistering social media attacks, a demoted Armand Gamache bonds with the victim's distraught father, who contemplates a murder of his own.
- McMillan Palgrave
âA Better Man, with its mix of meteorological suspense, psychological insight and criminal pursuit, is arguably the best book yet in an outstanding, original oeuvre.ââTom Nolan, The Wall Street Journal
"Enchanting... one of his most ennobling missions."âMarilyn 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 SÃ»retÃ© du QuÃ©bec in the latest novel by #1 New York Times bestselling author Louise Penny.
Itâs Gamacheâs 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 feelâ¦, 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 âconstantly surprising series that deepens and darkens as it evolvesâ (New York Times Book Review), Gamache must face a horrific possibility, and a burning question.
