We finally spend time inside Gremache's head as he psychologically recovers from another mystery. We are also introduced to the atmosphere and history of Quebec City.
Walking in a snowstorm...towards whom??
He owns this series as he does French accents well and gives sensitivity to the lead character, Gremache.
This is a great addition to a great series.
In the top ten.
Absolutely! Little parts of the story are hinted at.
Yes. Top notch as always!
This installment in the series is very good. Louise Penny is a good writer. Well researched, reliably well-written characters and stories. Love the settings. Solid, solid, solid. And entertaining. It kept me listening, wanting more. I always finish one of Penny's books ready for more.
Louise Penny has entertained me through several Inspector Gamache books. In this book she takes us through a very tense police situation. It was gripping at times and challenging to put down. If you love her series you'll enjoy this book also. Just know it has more tension and action than previous books.
Yes, listening to Ralph Cosham is a delight. He could read the telephone book and I would enjoy it.
This is not your ordinary murder mystery. In all the books of this series, Louise Penny manages to incorporate poetry, history, gourmet food and psychology, giving the series such interest.
Chief Inspector Gamache is such an interesting character.
Yes, I like the pace, the character development and the complexity of the characters
His narration is superb and paced just right for listening
I listened to the newest one first and then went back and listened to the rest. One right after another! I can't wait for the next in the series
This is the best of the Armand Gamache books so far. The plot is taut and clear. The story contends palpable tension and strong emotion. It also piqued my interest in Canadian history.
This is a true classic, one that I am sure I will listen to again to connect the threads in the three mysteries that run through the novel.
Each plot line builds in suspense, almost in competition, with no clear resolution in view.
Each story assumes prominence as it unfolds and the author skillfully moves the reader's focus from one to the other. This technique is both frustrating and spell binding.
As in all the novels, Chief Inspector Gamache is the compassionate, intuitive, and very human center, whose anguish over a mistake and resulting loss of life, reminds us of imperfection and frailty even in the most stalwart fictional heroes.
"Bury your dead" is a novel that exceeds the limitations expected in mystery genre.
The book is very pleasant without being insipid. The narrator is great, as is the story.
