Laura P. said:
Readers have been waiting on pins and needles for the follow-up to Beautiful Mystery in which Jean-Guy Beauvoir abandoned his friend, mentor and possible father-in-law Armand Gamache, and joined Gamache’s enemies in the Surete. Only Isabelle LaCoste remains loyal to Gamache--or so it seems. This book has it all: a murder to be investigated, a deep dark conspiracy in the Surete to be uncovered, danger, action and suspense. As always it’s the characters that shine in this wonderful series. Beauvoir struggles with his addictions and anger, the residents of Three Pines are their usual selves with some additional opening up by Ruth Zardo and a character we have not seen for a while returns and is finally transformed by the power of love. A dark plan is uncovered and though it gets dicey for our heroes toward the end, rest assured that all will be well.

Armand Gamache returns to Three Pines when a house guest of the town’s bookshop owner goes missing. Gamache’s troubles with the powers that be in the department and with Jean-Guy Beauvoir continue. The homicide victim turns out to be the last of five quintuplet girls known to everyone—at least by name—throughout the province. The problems in the police department are enormous and deadly. You hope for the best, but wonder who might not make it to the book’s end. Just keep turning pages; no wonder Penny’s latest book was on so many 2013 ‘Best Books’ lists.
