Publisher's Summary

It is Winter Carnival in Quebec City, bitterly cold and surpassingly beautiful. Chief Inspector Armand Gamache has come not to join the revels but to recover from an investigation gone hauntingly wrong. But violent death is inescapable, even in the apparent sanctuary of the Literary and Historical Society - where an obsessive historian’s quest for the remains of the founder of Quebec, Samuel de Champlain, ends in murder. Could a secret buried with Champlain for nearly 400 years be so dreadful that someone would kill to protect it?

Although he is supposed to be on leave, Gamache cannot walk away from a crime that threatens to ignite long-smoldering tensions between the English and the French. Meanwhile, he is receiving disquieting letters from the village of Three Pines, where beloved Bistro owner Olivier was recently convicted of murder. “It doesn't make sense,” Olivier’s partner writes every day. “He didn't do it, you know.” As past and present collide in this astonishing novel, Gamache must relive the terrible event of his own past before he can bury his dead.

Crack another case with Chief Inspector Gamache.

What the Critics Say

"Few writers in any genre can match Penny's ability to combine heartbreak and hope in the same scene. Increasingly ambitious in her plotting, she continues to create characters readers would want to meet in real life." (Publishers Weekly)

    "Another winner"

    Complex story strands masterfully braided together into an outstanding book. Great drama and suspense, great character exploration and, as always, great heart.

    "Gripping"

    This book was the best so far in the series. It boasts three major plot lines that all tie together worth the previous works. Wonderfully written, engaging and thrilling. 10 out of 10.

    "resolved "the brutal telling ""

    I have enjoyed the Inspector Gamache stories. But after a brutal telling. I almost didn't go back for another. I went back only because I was hopeful that Louise Penny would resolve some of the difficult parts of a brutal telling. This book did so and so much more it was a great story actually. two stories in one. I enjoyed it very much, the atmosphere was everything I expected from Louise Penny book I highly recommend it.

    "Best book in the series so far!"
    What does Ralph Cosham bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I love his accent and calm demeanor.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    This book has a bit more action and emotion than the previous books in the series and a very shocking moment for one character. I have almost come to feel like I am going home when I return in each book to Three Pines.

    Story
    "Great characters & mystery"
    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    I love the Ralph Cosham, the narrator, over all, but when he did the voice of an alleged country bumpkin from Quebec... no. He sounded like he was from -- I don't know -- Texas or something. That drove me a bit nuts... but it was only a small part.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    As usual, Louise Penny had me hooked from the start. I love getting to know the recurring characters more and more, and particularly enjoyed Beauvoir on his own in Three Pines. Also loved how Gamache was lured back to working.


    Any additional comments?

    I didn't quite catch an important part at the end... which I will not mention here... but perhaps it would be different if I was reading instead of listening. I need to go back and re-listen to that part because I still don't quite understand how the Morin story resolved...
