The Long Way Home Synopsis

Former Chief Inspector of Homicide, Armand Gamache, has found a peace he'd never imagined possible, away from the front line of the police and in the tranquil village of Three Pines. But when his friend Clara Morrow asks for help, he can't bring himself to refuse her, despite the old wounds it threatens to re-open. Clara's husband, Peter, is missing, having failed to come home on the first anniversary of their separation, as promised. As Gamache journeys further into Quebec, he is drawn deeper into the tortured mind of Peter Morrow, a man so desperate to recapture his fame as an artist that he would sell his soul. As Gamache gets closer to the truth, he uncovers a deadly trail of jealousy and deceit. Can Gamache bring Peter, and himself, home safely? Or in searching for answers, has he placed himself, and those closest to him, in terrible danger ...From number one New York Times bestselling author, Louise Penny, comes an evocative, immersive novel brimming with atmosphere and heart-stopping suspense -- her most ingenious novel to date.

The Good Book Guide Review

After a particularly traumatizing case, Armand Gamache, former Chief Inspector of Homicide, has retired to the peaceful village of Three Pines. Clara Morrow, friend and fellow resident of Three Pines, is disquieted when her husband, Peter, fails to return on the first anniversary of their separation. After much heart-searching she approaches Armand for his help. As the plot unfolds, the reader is drawn into the fascinating and competitive working of the art world where jealousy and deceit are rife. Will Armand be able to overcome the threat from past wounds as he journeys further into Quebec as he searches for Peter, or has he placed himself in danger? This is a crime novel that is rich in atmosphere with a fascinating array of characters that enhance a plot of great suspense and ingenuity.
