This review is from: A Trick of the Light: A Chief Inspector Gamache Novel (Audio CD)
Gamache and all the artists and art dealers in Montreal and a small Quebec village are actors in this story.
This book certainly makes sense if you know art, know volatile artists, the creative process, the drive of succeeding, the art of living by your wits.
Having the sane and direct Inspector Gamache around to be a guide, helps immensely.
My enjoyment of the book was great, but for many readers there are many aspects here of making art that could have been explored in more detail. It is called "'A trick of the light'" after all. Also, having read a previous Gamache tale '"Bury your dead"' first, certainly helps with the story line.
I put it away satisfied, but without the usual anticipation for the next book. All the magic of a new angle somewhere has left for me.
