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.

The elegant and absolutely enchanting prose of Louise Penny brings the reader back to the tiny Quebec village of Three Pines, known as a place where they "didn't even have crime. Except murder. The only criminal thing that ever happened in this village was the worst possible crime." One resident says: "Can't imagine what Gamache thinks of us. Every time he shows up there's a body," another: "Every Quebec village has a vocation. Some make cheese, some wine, some pots. We produce bodies." This is the fifth book in the series, and each time Inspector Gamache had come...
