I’m reading the newest book in one of my favorite authors, Louise Penny. Glass Houses is the thirteenth book in the series. I can honestly say I have enthusiastically enjoyed every one of them. Here’s how Glass Houses begins:

Chapter One

“State your name, please.”
“Armad Gamache.”
“And you are the head of the Surete du Quebec?”
“The Chief Superintendent, oui.”

Gamache sat upright on the wooden chair. It was hot. Sweltering, really, on this July morning. He could taste perspiration from his upper lip and it was only just ten o’clock. It was only just starting.

What do you think?

Would you keep reading?
