An obsessive historian's quest for the remains of the founder of Quebec, Samuel de Champlain, ends in murder. Could a secret buried with Champlain for nearly 400 years be so dreadful that someone would kill to protect it? Although he is supposed to be on leave, Chief Inspector Gamache cannot walk away from a crime that threatens to ignite long-smoldering tensions between the English and the French. Meanwhile, he is receiving disquieting letters from the village of Three Pines, where beloved Bistro owner Olivier was recently convicted of murder.… (mais)

This might be my favorite yet in this series. Three main storylines/mysteries, getting to see Gamache's reaction to tragedy and trauma, and learning some cultural history of Quebec that's almost entirely new to me make this a thoroughly engaging read. ( )

The best in the series so far. This is a complicated story, lots of interconnecting threads which mesh with some of the dangling threads of Book 5. I have read these somewhat out of order, starting with later books and then going back to the beginning and reading the earlier books sequentially. I am so glad I did that because this book would make no sense if I had not read the one before. This book also informs many of the later books, and things I had not understood before, especially about the inspector's status in the Surete (that is important in some later books) now make so much more sense.

I love that I learn so much more about Inspector Gamache with every book. He is so fully fleshed out in this book, moving from heroic to tragic and back again, a man defined by the mantle of responsibility and the complexities of love and friendship. We learn the inspector largely though the work he does to solve the mysteries, his connections and sense of obligation to the people who work under him, and his family, and also the inspector comes to better know himself in the same way. This book stayed out of Three Pines for the most part, and I liked that I had this chance to learn the inspector without all the background noise of the odd denizens of Three Pines. Do not get me wrong, I love Three Pines, but separating him for the herd gave me a chance to bond with Armand in a way I was not previously able. This volume was so satisfying! ( )

Superb. Masterful intertwining of several stories that seamlessly move between the present and past. Deeply engaging and affecting. ( )

Chief Inspector Armand Gamache visits his old mentor during a Quebec City winter, to recover from injuries received from an investigation that went terribly wrong. But he ends up investigating the death of amateur archaeologist who has spent his life looking for the body of Samuel de Champlain. Meanwhile he has sent his deputy to Three Pines to determine whether the correct killer of a hermit is in prison.
As this is my first Gamache novel I am not sure if the latter mystery is a continuation or an added plot line.
Interesting characters and an enjoyable read which drew me in. I shall probably look out for the first in the series. ( )

Unfortunately, the German publisher of the audiobooks isn't fast enough with the release of new novels. While the printed books seem to be (almost) up to date, the audiobooks are not. But I didn't want to wait and tried to check out Louise Penny's (cosy-)crime series about Chief-Inspector Armand Gamache in English. I can read English better than unterstand it, and so I bought the Kindle and audio edition (the so-called Whyspersynch for Voice) where I can listen and read simultaneously. Why both? Why not simply reading? Well... I'm a true fan of audiobooks and enjoy a story much better when a good narrator reads it to me. It very rarely happens that a narrator does not enhance the story of a good book for me. I understand if that is not the case for everyone. I understand if people prefer printed books (or e-books). Me, I'm a full audio lover and only read books if there's no other way. It's a shame that still - even though audiobooks become more and more popular - there are too many books that will never be published as audio. Especially if they don't fit the "mainstream". But I digress. Back to this book.

The story happens on three different levels. We have a dead person in the here and now, with 'here and now' being the basment of the Literary and Historical Society of Quebec City. What? Not Three Pines? Nope. But do not fret. In a side-story, we will also look what happens in our little beloved village, because if you've read book 5 in the series, you know that there might be some unanswered questions pending. In a third storyline we learn in flashbacks about a traumatizing experience that Gamache and his team had to deal with. And yes... that WAS a traumatizing experience. The author masters to weave all three elements into one story that never confuses, where the reader (ahem... listener) is always clear about what's going on, and that are all three captivating in their own right. Especially the events around the Homicide Team operation that went horribly wrong.

During the Quebec storyline we learn a whole lot about not only the province Quebec but also the city and its founders. Louise Penny provides us with a lot of history and at the same time keeps it interesting and entertaining. Quebec is basically a main character in the book, while Three Pines is a supporting act. And that's perfectly fine. (I'm now even following a couple Quebec accounts on Instagram because I wanted to see some images of the beautiful place we learn so much about.)

Meanwhile, Gamache and his second in command, Jean Guy Beauvoir, have their individual ways of dealing with events that might leave them forever changed while both of them have to solve a murder case.

I have loved this book so much! It seems a bit... quieter. Darker even, which is nice for a change. The best in the series so far. And yes, I've said that about every new book I've read. By now #16 is out and I'm sure I will say it some more.

Narrator Adam Sims did a very fine job! ( )

(p. 31) "My English isn't very good. It's OK, but you should hear the head librarian speak French. At least, I think she's speaking French. She clearly thinks she is. But I can't understand a word. In the entire interview she spoke French and I spoke English. It was like something out of a cartoon. She must think I'm a moron. So far all I've done is grinned and nodded and I think I might have asked whether she's descended from the lower orders."
"Why did you ask that?"
"I didn't mean to. I wanted to ask if she had access to the basement, but something went wrong," he smiled ruefully. "I think clarity might be important in a murder case."
"I think you might be right. What did she say to your questions?"
"She got quite upset and said that the night is a strawberry."
"Oh dear."
Langlois sighed a puff of frustration. "Will you come in? I know you speak English. I've heard you at conferences."
"But how do you know I wasn't mangling the language too? Maybe the night is a strawberry."

(p. 37) "I understand that the night is a strawberry," said Gamache, smiling slightly.
"Oh, you heard about that, did you?" Elizabeth smiled. "Poor Winnie. No ear for languages. Reads French perfectly, you know. Always the highest marks in school, but can't seem to speak it. Her accent would stop a train."

(p. 62) Winnie Manning came in next and confirmed that the night was indeed a strawberry, but added that the English were good pumpkins and that the library had a particularly impressive section on mattresses and mattress warfare.

(p. 141) ...Winnie had greeted them, given them the bilingual brochures, and invited them to join. She'd even given some of the more brazen a brief tour of the library, pointing out the fine pillows on the walls, the collection of figs on the shelves, and asking if any of them would like to become umlauts. Not surprisingly, few did. But three people actually paid twenty dollars and joined, shamed into it by Winnie's obvious kindness and handicap.
"Did you mention that the night is a strawberry?" Elizabeth asked when Winnie returned with a membership payment.
"I did. They didn't disagree."
