Publisher's Summary

Chaos is coming, old son.
With those words the peace of Three Pines is shattered.
Everybody goes to Olivier's 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 Olivier's story is full of holes. Why are his fingerprints all over the cabin that's uncovered deep in the wilderness, with priceless antiques and the dead man's 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 Charlotte's 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.

Gamache Doesn’t Disappoint

Once again, an engrossing story, twisty mystery, and this time with a bittersweet solution. On to the next murder in the very macabre Three Pines.

Magic!

The Brutal Telling is a magical book. The story line depend the characters and our understanding of them. It is in cosy Three Pines, but the story rambles over Canada. Reading it, I understand why tourists like the Clintons want to visit. Read this book. If you have already read it, listen to it on Audible.
