Gamache's World: Louise Penny's Mystery Novels   

Let's discuss the characters, themes, and locales of this award-winning mystery series centered on Armand Gamache, chief inspector of the Surete du Quebec.  "Gamache had always held unfashionable beliefs. He believed the light would banish the shadows. That kindness was more powerful than cruelty, and that goodness existed, even in the most desperate places. He believed that evil had its limits." ~ Louise Penny, How the Light Gets In.
