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.

Intricacies of human nature
Wow. One of my favorites from the Gamache series. Louise Penny is an avid observer of the human heart and condition. Her stories build intreging characters and their complex human characteristics to get behind the real meaning of day to day choices and behavior. She weaves her stories by building on these characters, their joys and sorrows and SIN! Louise would not call these sins, but that is what they are... So real, so thoughtful, so easy to see yourself as one of these. All laid on top of a simple, believable plot. I love Penny's writing and always chose her books like choosing to sit with a friend. If I just can't decide what to read next, I simply pull out another Louise Penny book. Oh, and I adore the narrator too!
