Nature of the Beast/ Louise Penny/376 pages
The Nature of the Beast is the eleventh novel in the Inspector Gamache series by Louise Penny. Now retired, Inspector Gamache pursues a quite lifestyle in Three Pines. A young boy with a big imagination goes missing in Three Pines. This time what sounds imagined is real and does not bode well for the young man. As physicists and spies descend on Three Pines, Gamache, Beauvouir and LaCoste search for a murderer, a weapons designer all the while trying to figure out how a notorious murder fits in the mix. While part of the plot is slightly difficult to believe, it was still an interesting read of what could have been.
