The 16th novel by #1 bestselling author Louise Penny finds Chief Inspector Armand Gamache of the SÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â»retÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â© 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 ArmandÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢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 manÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s life.
When a strange key is found in StephenÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s possession it sends Armand, his wife Reine-Marie, and his former second-in-command at the SÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â»retÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â©, Jean-Guy Beauvoir, from the top of the Tour dÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢Eiffel, to the bowels of the Paris Archives, from luxury hotels to odd, coded, works of art.
It sends them deep into the secrets ArmandÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s godfather has kept for decades.
A gruesome discovery in StephenÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢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.

Praise for All the Devils Are Here
ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œAlthough Penny touches on a wide range of subjects in this expansive story, her main concern is with the sacrifices we make for those we love. Here, even the loving relationship between Gamache and his son, Daniel, is challenged. If you think about it, the underlying theme of all of PennyÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s books is Honor Thy Family ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Â the one you were born with, the one youÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢ve acquired during your lifetime and the Family of Man.ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬ÂThe New York Times Book Review
ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œPenny excels at capturing the inner life, whether itÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s a criminalÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s or a resentful childÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s. Series novices and die-hard fans alike will be left breathlessÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Âand moved.ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â
ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬ÂPeople Magazine (Book of the Week)
ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œArmand Gamache seems as much a spiritual warrior as a homicide detectiveÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â¦ What stays with the reader are the tender passages, the human insights, the reminders of what makes life worth living.ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â
ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬ÂWall Street Journal
ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œYou don't need to have read the previous books to enjoy the mystery (whose apt title refers to a line from Shakespeare's The Tempest: ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‹Å“Hell is empty and all the devils are hereÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢), but knowing a bit about the charactersÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢ backgrounds helps you follow the subtle tensions between them."
ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬ÂAARP The Magazine
ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œPenny excels at creating a sense of place, and she brings Paris to life with scenes small (a favorite garden at the Rodin museum) and big (the top of the Eiffel Tower). We walk ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Â or, when necessary, run ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Â through the streets of Paris, taste lemon tarts and mourn the fire damage to Notre Dame.ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â
ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬ÂSt. Louis Post Dispatch
ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œPennyÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s books are always a cause for celebration, and this one is superb in every regard.ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â
ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬ÂBooklist (Top Review)
ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œPenny's series has always been about the complexities and sustaining glories of family, and here she takes that theme even further, revealing fissures in the Gamache clan, but also showing the resilience and love at its root. Series devotees will revel in both Penny's evocation of ParisÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Âevery bit as sumptuous as her rendering of Three PinesÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Âand in the increased role she allots to librarian Reine-Marie, whose research skills are crucial to untying the Gordian knot at the mystery's core.ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â
ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œExceptionalÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â¦ PennyÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s nuanced exploration of the human spirit continues to distinguish this brilliant series.ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â
ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬ÂPublishers Weekly (starred)
ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œAs always, Penny's mystery is meticulously constructed and reveals hard truths about the hidden workings of the worldÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Âas well as the workings of the Gamache family. But there's plenty of local color, too, with a trip to the top of the Eiffel Tower to escape surveillance and a luxurious suite at the Hotel George V for good measure. If you're new to Penny's world, this would be a great place to jump in. Then go back and start the series from the beginning.ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â
ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬ÂKirkus Reviews (starred)
"The strengths of this latest procedural from the inimitable Penny will attract her longtime fans and also draw in new admirers. A deft touch with plotting, sensitive characterization, and the authorÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s warmth and humanity make this a must-have mystery, especially for collections owning the rest of series.ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â
