Kirkus Review starred review ' What makes this story most magical Penny is an expert at pulling away the surface of her characters to expose their deeper—and often ugly—layers, always doing so with a direct but compassionate hand.
A strong sense of place, a multilayered plot, and well-crafted and for Penny's fans, familiar characters combine for a thoughtful, intriguing tale.

Attention, fans who have been waiting for poet Ruth Zardo's backstory: Here's at least part of your wish granted.
When a little boy who constantly tells tall tales disappears from his Quebec village, the community is forced to reexamine his supposed stories. As they embark on their quest for the truth, they quickly down the rabbit hole, beginning a sequence of events that leads to answers they never dreamed were possible.
One of the wonders of 'The Nature of the Beast' is how subtly and relentlessly the author mines that darkness, and how surely her detective steps through it, without once losing his cool. All about morals as well as murder. Penny tells her story with a light-handed deftness that allows events to move swiftly.
Three Pines in her skillful hands becomes a literary pageant and the secret of its charm is its simplicity. She knows how to shape a novel for both readers new to the series and regulars… Penny has shaped a world in which the characters are constantly evolving, reacting to violence but also to love and connection.
Elements of that world might be predictable, even comfortable, but enough remains outside its control to make it worth entering again and again, for both its stability and its surprises.
As Gamache journeys further into Quebec, he is drawn deeper into the tortured mind of Peter Morrow, a man so desperate to recapture his fame as an artist that he would sell his soul.
As Gamache gets closer to the truth, he uncovers a deadly trail of jealousy and deceit. Can Gamache bring Peter, and himself, home safely? Or in searching for answers, has he placed himself, and those closest to him, in terrible danger.
