Book Description: 

<p><b>“‘A Better Man,' with its mix of meteorological suspense, psychological insight and criminal pursuit, is arguably the best book yet in an outstanding, original oeuvre.” —Tom Nolan, <i>The Wall Street Journal</i></b><br><b></b><br><b>"Enchanting... one of his most ennobling missions." —Marilyn Stasio, <i>New York Times Book Review</i></b></p><p><i>Catastrophic spring flooding, blistering attacks in the media, and a mysterious disappearance greet Chief Inspector Armand Gamache as he returns to the Sûreté du Québec in the latest novel by #1 </i>New York Times<i> bestselling author Louise Penny. </i></p><p>It’s Gamache’s first day back as head of the homicide department, a job he temporarily shares with his previous second-in-command, Jean-Guy Beauvoir. Flood waters are rising across the province. In the middle of the turmoil a father approaches Gamache, pleading for help in finding his daughter. </p><p>As crisis piles upon crisis, Gamache tries to hold off the encroaching chaos, and realizes the search for Vivienne Godin should be abandoned. But with a daughter of his own, he finds himself developing a profound, and perhaps unwise, empathy for her distraught father. </p><p>Increasingly hounded by the question, <i>how would you feel</i>…, he resumes the search. </p><p>As the rivers rise, and the social media onslaught against Gamache becomes crueler, a body is discovered. And in the tumult, mistakes are made. </p><p>In the next novel in this “constantly surprising series that deepens and darkens as it evolves” (<i>New York Times Book Review</i>), Gamache must face a horrific possibility, and a burning question. </p><p><i>What would you do if your child’s killer walked free?</i></p>
