Description

Instant Number-One New York Times Best Seller

"Robert Bathurst is just about perfect delivering the 16th Chief Inspector Armand Gamache novel.... Listen to all the Gamache audiobooks for maximum satisfaction." (AudioFile Magazine, Earphones Award winner)

In All the Devils Are Here, the 16th novel by number one best-selling author Louise Penny finds Chief Inspector Armand Gamache of the Sûreté du Quebec investigating a sinister plot in the City of Light.

On their first night in Paris, the Gamaches gather as a family for a bistro dinner with Armand’s godfather, the billionaire Stephen Horowitz. Walking home together after the meal, they watch in horror as Stephen is knocked down and critically injured in what Gamache knows is no accident, but a deliberate attempt on the elderly man’s life. 

When a strange key is found in Stephen’s possession it sends Armand, his wife, Reine-Marie, and his former second-in-command at the Sûreté, Jean-Guy Beauvoir, from the top of the Tour d’Eiffel, to the bowels of the Paris Archives, from luxury hotels to odd, coded works of art. 

It sends them deep into the secrets Armand’s godfather has kept for decades. 

A gruesome discovery in Stephen’s Paris apartment makes it clear the secrets are more rancid, the danger far greater and more imminent, than they realized. 

Soon the whole family is caught up in a web of lies and deceit. In order to find the truth, Gamache will have to decide whether he can trust his friends, his colleagues, his instincts, his own past. His own family. 

For even the City of Light casts long shadows. And in that darkness devils hide. 

A Macmillan Audio production from Minotaur Books 

"Bathurst superbly manipulates tone, volume, and pace to highlight this range of emotions. Paris is described beautifully, and Bathurst lingers over these descriptive passages that will speak to any traveler’s soul...." (Booklist, starred review)

Wonderful!

This is one of my favourite Gamache books to date. A fascinating story with a brilliant narrator. As usual, Louise Penny brings our awareness to the devils that are here as a warning to be mindful of social and environmental forces at work in the background of our lives.

She's done it again!!!!

Seven months into the 2020 pandemic, life in my home community of Kingston, Ontario had settled into a manageable rhythm with our Canadian government having made what I considered to be wise and supportive decisions that enabled me, at 74 years of age, to establish a daily rhythm that though ‘much locked down’, allowed me to continue ‘getting on’ with many of my life choices.

Though deeply grateful for my life, I found myself slipping into greater and greater emotional darkness. How might I lift myself out of the depths into which I was sinking, reconnecting with the positivity I previously had normally exuded? Thanks be to Louise Penny!!! The timing of the release of her latest work All the Devils Are Here: A Novel couldn’t have been more perfect for me! With my having read her previous 15 works, I chose to enjoy the newest storyline using Audible technology: listening rather than reading her words.! With narration adding to the incredible depth of Louise’s creativity, plot development, and organizational skills, I discovered an added perk this time ‘round: the dramatic flair of vocal interpretation resulting in even further enhancement of my enjoyment, definitely shifting my personal sadness to yet again a reason for celebration!!!

Louise Penny does it again!!

Once again I was transported into the world of Inspector Gamache. Although the story takes place in Paris instead of 3 Pines it brings you on a fascinating journey. Loved it!! But I love all of Louise Penny’s books and look forward to the next.

Well worth the wait

I was blown away by this book. It pulls together so many characters from previous books and still surprises with a unique and interesting plot line. I’m going to revisit all the previous books and enjoy again the wonderful characters and stories of Three Pines.

Lovely story

Such a lovely story. I really wish Robert Bathurst wasn’t the narrator. He does fine for Inspector Gamache but the rest of the accents are terrible. Daniel sounds like an Irishman and Jean-Guy has totally disappeared🙁

Another winner from Louise Penny

Kept me guessiing until the end. Enjoyable and riveting. On the whole, I prefer to read rather than listen to this type of story.

Like a fine wine.

My wife and I ‘read’ all our books together, and find that listening a second or third time really brings the book and all the characters to life. We will often stop and google the locations and the attractions or art pieces mentioned for a deep understanding of why Louise uses them in her novel.
To us this book is a complete virtual experience.
Remember that while the devils are here they are also in the details, take the time to experience them.

Family involvement

Loved how the Gamache family were more central and family history revealed. The Paris location took them away from the familiarity and distraction of home environment.

Absolutely enthralling

I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this novel. I started to feel like the characters were family. Kept my interest right to the end. This was my first Louise Penny book and will not be my last. Robert Bathurst is a wonderful narrator has a great voice. I would recommend this book to everyone that loves a good mystery

Trope after trope

It had such potential, but...
The writing is shallow. The plot picks up on just about every “already been done plot twist there is” and the sense of reality goes down the toilet with every over used literary trope.

One of her best

This Gamache mystery is well plotted and Penny has done a terrific job of balancing the setting of Paris with a homesickness for Three Pines. The book feels more carefully written, or maybe better edited than some of the others in the series. I knew where the “missing evidence” was immediately but the book is so well structured that it never mattered—the tension is more about who knows what and who is on which side of the moral divide. While the end is a little heavy handed, seeming to exploit the emotions of the reader rather unfairly, it’s forgivable. There is a bit of a gap in resolution with one of the characters who never has to face a final confrontation with Gamache and I found that dissatisfying, along with the stress that I as a reader took on about the hotel bill (silly, I know but I worried about that all the way through—throw us a bone and say he took care of it!), but overall, this is one of her best novels. The performance suffers from Bathurst’s inability to manage the Canadian Anglo accent. As a result, Daniel is rendered nasal and insufferable. I suspect I would not have dismissed Daniel as so irritating had I read the book rather than listened to it. To other listeners, I’d say it helps to bear that in mind. Otherwise you lose a lot of the necessary tension there because it’s hard to muster sympathy for such a whiner. However, Bathurst is clearly a terrific actor and a clear reader and the French, German and Québécois characters sound realistic and he subtly denotes age in his voices as well—it’s a tiny detail, but he nailed the attitude of the perfumerie salesclerk and that was brilliant reading that reflects PennyMs dry humor. Highly recommend, but don’t listen to the last few chapters when sleepy-lots of twists and turns and backtracking.

So grateful for this series

The annual release of the. new volume in the Inspector Gamache series is a rite of passage from summer to fall. During this very difficult and painful corona virus pandemic, the chance to visit with the Gamache family as they continue to learn about themselves and each other was especially meaningful. Thank you, Louise Penny!

A technology mystery in Paris!

I would not have believed that Louise Penny would write a mystery about misuse of rare earth magnets. I'm a huge long-term fan of Louise Penny and the Gamache series. Each of the 16 novels in the series has been wonderful, but ALL THE DEVILS ARE HERE is now my favorite. It is a treasure! Robert Bathurst took over narrating the series from Ralph Cosham after Cosham's 2014 death just as The Long Way Home was published. Bathurst is excellent but few narrators are as outstanding as Cosham.

I do love this series!

Amateur Crime writing

A stretch of a plot line, trite tour of Paris (multiple street crepes), implausible, indestructible, selfless, billionaire hero, with unexplained Canadian cop son (chief detective demoted to homicide detective for some obscure reason) and dysfunctional grandson with ill-defined grievance, plus maudlin family scenario with birth of great grandkid at end. Really ridiculous. The financial shinanigans at the heart of this thriller rival the sophistication of Stieg Larsson's villains. A stinker of a thriller, but the narrator was pretty good.

Elegant, entertaining with unexpected twists and turns!

Just love this family of characters! The poetic writing style, beautifully revealed personalities,mouth-watering descriptions of food all coalesce into a story that one has to keep listening to. The skilled performance of the voice actor is icing on the cake! I discovered Louise Perry’s series during COVID. Listening to them has kept me sane, entertained and rushing to listen to the next book! Sadly, I’ve come to the end of the series, to date. I will remain alert for the next installment. Thank you Louise Perry for your vivid imagination, insight into human nature and story-telling skills. Your writing is a gift to all!

Back on form

I began reading this series when my youngest left California to go to McGill in 2013. Reading these helped keep me connected with her, and gave me some intelligent questions to ask re Montreal and Quebec! And now she's back home I continue to follow the series eagerly. But I have to say I nearly stopped altogether with 'A Better Man' which I personally found thin, uninteresting, even badly written. It felt like Penny was dealing with some other bigger thing than writing that book. So for anyone who loved that book then this new addition might not be your cup of tea. The latest is much more complex, more sophisticated, way better structured. It feels like Penny paying some hommage to Le Carre and the mix works surprisingly well. My out and out series favorite is 'Bury Your Dead', where the history research and the City of Quebec come so alive, but 'All the Devils' comes a close second. Bravo! And THANK YOU!

Quantity vs Quality

I am a total devotee of Louise Penny, and have gratefully immersed myself in her series, not just once, but multiple times. They get better with each reading, and I adore her.

That said, I found this book to be less of a fine, gourmet meal than a smorgasbord. Too many characters brought in and forgotten, too much high drama that went nowhere, and what amounted to two different endings. The first was true to the honesty and spirit of her previous books, the latter was contrived to give us a "happily ever after" experience. It's especially disappointing as I'd been counting the days until I could download the audible book and indulge myself once again in a magical Louise Penny novel.

Everyone is entitled to a less-than-perfect performance from time to time, and I've been in awe of Ms. Penny's ability to maintain the quality of her writing through such a long - and wishfully endless - series of books. So I'm inclined to see this one as just an "adjustment" like we see in the stock market upon occasion, and I'll be salivating over the prospect of her next book as always. But maybe I'll tamp down my anticipation just a bit so - should this one mark a new trend - I won't be so disappointed.

The Devil Is In The Details

I started out disliking this visit with the Gamache Clan primarily because I thought many opportunities for capturing the vibe, feeling, and texture of life on the Left Bank and in Paris were missed. Parts of the story were so implausible I just groaned and eye rolled. What was even worse was that Bathurst's narration, something I usually enjoy, seemed a bit off and strange.

Then, just when I was ready to call it quits, a strange thing happened, she won me over. Penny is at her best when she is describing Canada, the interaction of family and friends, usually food (though not so much this time) and love. To me, when she started to focus on what she does really well the book came alive.

Suddenly, I felt happy listening to this story about connection, building bridges and finding home. It turned out to be a perfect listening experience for life in the pandemic. Maybe not the best mystery, but Louise Penny left me feeling comforted and smiling. Right about now I'll take that and I'm sending a big thank you up to Three Pines to boot. Glad I stuck with it.
