Another fun read by Louise Penny. Glass Houses tells the story of revenge served cold. A group of friends returns for their yearly reunion in Three Pines when a dark, mysterious figure shows up in the center of town. Never moving, the figure dressed all in black, stands facing the town with a sinister feel. After the figure disappears, and a body is found, its up the Chief Inspector Gamache and his colleagues to determine what happened.
Although, there is much more to the story than simple revenge and Gamache and Beauvoir uncover secret drug routes through the region. In order to effectively catch the criminals, the Surete must present a mismanaged, incompetent front to trap the criminals into revealing their plans.
