Fiction. Mystery. HTML:

Happily retired in the village of Three Pines, Armand Gamache, former Chief Inspector of Homicide with the Sûreté du Québec, has found a peace he'd only imagined possible. On warm summer mornings he sits on a bench holding a small book, The Balm in Gilead, in his large hands. "There is a balm in Gilead," his neighbor Clara Morrow reads from the dust jacket, "to make the wounded whole."
While Gamache doesn't talk about his wounds and his balm, Clara tells him about hers. Peter, her artist husband, has failed to come home. Failed to show up as promised on the first anniversary of their separation. She wants Gamache's help to find him. Having finally found sanctuary, Gamache feels a near revulsion at the thought of leaving Three Pines. "There's power enough in Heaven," he finishes the quote as he contemplates the quiet village, "to cure a sin-sick soul." And then he gets up. And joins her.
Together with his former second-in-command, Jean-Guy Beauvoir, and Myrna Landers, they journey deeper and deeper into Québec. And deeper and deeper into the soul of Peter Morrow. A man so desperate to recapture his fame as an artist, he would sell that soul. And may have. The journey takes them further and further from Three Pines, to the very mouth of the great St. Lawrence river. To an area so desolate, so damned, the first mariners called it The land God gave to Cain. And there they discover the terrible damage done by a sin-sick so

Book 10. Really good story about finding Peter. KIRKUS REVIEWArmand Gamache, former chief inspector of homicide for the S?ret? du Qu?bec, is settling into retirement in the idyllic village of Three Pinesbut Gamache understands better than most that danger never strays far from home.With the help of friends and chocolate croissants and the protection of the village?s massive pines, Gamache is healing. His hands don?t shake as they used to; you might just mistake him and his wife, Reine-Marie, for an ordinary middle-age couple oblivious to the world?s horrors. But Gamache still grapples with a ?sin-sick soul?¥he can?t forget what lurks just beyond his shelter of trees. It?s his good friend Clara Morrow who breaks his fragile state of peace when she asks for help: Peter, Clara?s husband, is missing. After a year of separation, Peter was scheduled to return home; Clara needs to know why he didn?t. This means going out there, where the truth awaits¥but are Clara and Gamache ready for the darkness they might encounter? The usual cast of characters is here: observant bookseller Myrna; Gamache?s second in command, Jean-Guy Beauvoir; even the bitter old poet, Ruth, is willing to lend a hand to find Peter, an artist who?s lost his way. The search takes them across Quebec to the mouth of the St. Lawrence River, toward another sin-sick soul, one fighting to claw his way out of jealousy?s grasp. Penny develops the story behind Peter?s disappearance at a slow, masterful pace, revealing each layer of the mystery alongside an introspective glance at Gamache and his comrades, who can all sympathize with Peter?s search for purpose. The emotional depth accessed here is both a wonder and a joy to uncover; if only the different legs of Peter?s physical journey were connected as thoughtfully as his emotional one.Gamache?s 10th outing (How the Light Gets In, 2013, etc.) culminates in one breathless encounter, and readers may feel they weren?t prepared for this story to end. The residents of Three Pines will be back, no doubt, as they?ll have new wounds to mend.

  derailer | Jan 25, 2024 |
La ricerca di un uomo, un viaggio in Canada, un ispettore in pensione, la scoperta dei sentimenti per gli uomini e per l'arte. Un delitto. Troppe cose tutte insieme per un giallo che non appassiona troppo fino in fondo. Ed anche il finale è abbastanza deludente. Quasi frettoloso, non ti lascia a bocca aperta. Insomma, un libro lungo ma poco entusiasmante. ( )

An unexpected twist vaulted this read from good to really, really good. ( )

Wow..So many haters among the reviewers. It's true that this book is a lot different from the preceding ones. It is NOT true that there was no mystery to be solved. I thought there were quite a few, some of them only between Penny and the Reader. I rather liked the departure from the usual "dead body found," starting point. Sure, the conclusion to plot-driving mystery was a bit (okay, extremely,) over the top, but I'm forgiving. I think solving that mystery was merely a tool for taking the characters out of their usual confines.

Unlike many, I felt like this book revealed a lot about the characters and set us up for more development. After so many books and Armand's "retirement," it is not surprising that Penny explored a new path. I may be the exception, but I liked it a lot. ( )
