An absolutely wonderful novel. It has a plot with a murder, guilt, courtroom drama and justice hopefully being served not by the courts but by 'the court of conscience' which supersedes all other courts and a final heroic battle with the drug cartels. Gamache, never losing sight of his goal and his very ambitious plan to "burn the ships", develops a complex and brave strategy and puts his entire career and life in jeopardy with some startling results. One of Penny's best novels, suspenseful and an amazing finale.
