How the Light Gets In (2013)

review 1: This is the first (and only) of the Inspector Gamache books I've read, and it didn't work for me. It was interminable. The story line about the Inspector's colleagues got old. After about halfway through the book I found myself skipping through the book. Although I didn't like th...
