Louise Penny Hits #2

Hitting new highs, Canadian Louise Penny’s eighth title in her beloved Inspector Gamache series, The Beautiful Mystery (Macmillan/Minotaur Books, Macmillan Audio; Thorndike Large Print), arrives at #2 on the Indie Hardcover Fiction Best Seller list and at  #12 on USA Today‘s list.

Designated a People Pick in the 9/3 issue, in this outing inspector Gamache of the Quebec Surete investigates the murder in a monastery, and in the process unearths painful truths behind the calm facade. Says People, “With enormous empathy for the troubled human soul — and an ending that makes your blood race and your heart break — Penny continues to raise the bar of her splendid series.”

This is the second of the series to arrive on best seller lists. Her previous title in the series, A Trick of the Light, debuted on the NYT list at #4 and stayed on for two weeks, and two more on the extended list.
