A Chief Inspector Gamache Novel
Louise Penny

With his department in disarray and his beloved second-in-command not speaking to him, Quebec Chief Inspector Armand Gamache (last seen in The Beautiful Mystery, 2012) welcomes the opportunity to return to the scenic village of Three Pines. Bookseller Myrna Landers has asked him to find her friend, who failed to show up for Christmas. The friend--who turns up dead in her home--is none other than one of a set of quintuplets whose birth captivated Canada half a century ago. Who would want this woman dead? And will Gamache's department ever be the same again? Superlative.
