No one liked CC de Poitiers. Not her quiet, ineffectual husband. Not the pallid, spineless photographer who was her lover. Not even her tremendously fat, eleven-year-old daughter Crie, dubbed "Brie" by her hateful classmates. And certainly none of the residents of the village of Three Pines, each of whom CC had managed to offend.
Therein lies the challenge for the Inspector Armand Gamache of the Sûreté du Quebec, called in once again from Montreal to investigate murder in this hamlet. CC has been killed in an apparent electrical accident, and everyone in town has a motive, even the inspector's good friends. The kind, compassionate, and whip-smart detective must employ all his talents, not least his ability to blend seamlessly into small-town life, to identify the calculating killer lurking within the pastoral landscape that is Three Pines.

Welcome back to Three Pines where the villagers are preparing for a traditional country Christmas...and murder.
A FATAL GRACE Gamache digs beneath the surface of Three Pines to find where the real secrets are buried. But other troubles lie ahead for the detective. It seems he has some enemies of his own...and with the coming of the bitter winter winds, something far more chilling is in store.
When Chief Inspector Armand Gamache is called to investigate a woman’s death, it doesn’t take long for him to realize that no love was lost on Miss de Poitiers. But even if everyone hated her—her husband, lover, and daughter among them—how is it that no one saw her get electrocuted in the middle of a frozen lake in the center of town?
