A short Gamache story to tide over people who have read all of Penny's books. Of course, since it's a short story it was not long enough. I can never get enough of Louise Penny. Her characters and setting are just perfect. Apparently there will be some tv movies based on her books coming out. Those will be exciting to see. Also, her latest novel comes out this August 2012, so that's something to look forward to.

The Hangman features the same setting and characters as some of Louise Penny's other novels, but it is an original story created specially for the Good Reads series.

This is a book for intermediate readers. It is the short version of one of Louise Penny's adult books.
