Publisher Comments:

Chaos is coming, old son. 

With those words the peace of Three Pines is shattered. Everybody goes to Oliviers Bistro—including a stranger whose murdered body is found on the floor. When Chief Inspector Gamache is called to investigate, he is dismayed to discover that Oliviers story is full of holes. Why are his fingerprints all over the cabin thats uncovered deep in the wilderness, with priceless antiques and the dead mans blood? And what other secrets and layers of lies are buried in the seemingly idyllic village?

Gamache follows a trail of clues and treasures—from first editions of Charlottes Web and Jane Eyre to a spiderweb with a word mysteriously woven in it—into the woods and across the continent, before returning to Three Pines to confront the truth and the final, brutal telling.

Synopsis:

As families prepare to head back to the city and children say goodbye to summer, a stranger is found murdered in the village bistro and antiques store. Once again, Chief Inspector Gamache and his team are called in to strip back layers of lies.

Theis series of mysteries is delightful. Interesting, well drawn characters, complex moral dilemmas--and not everyone is perfect. They suck you in--you look up and are surprised not to be in Three Pines! I like this one in particular as it shows someone who wants to accept the obvious having to look deeper, and being changed by it.

As always, Penny pulls you in to the people and doings of Three Pines. Suspense and a surprise/sad ending keep you riveted. Can't wait to read the next one!
