When a peculiar letter arrives inviting Armand Gamache to an abandoned farmhouse, the former head of the Sûreté du Québec discovers that a complete stranger has named him one of the executors of her will. Still on suspension, and frankly curious, Gamache accepts and soon learns that the other two executors are Myrna Landers, the bookseller from Three Pines, and a young builder. None of them had ever met the elderly woman. The will is so odd and includes bequests that are so wildly unlikely that Gamache and the others suspect the woman must have been delusional. But what if, Gamache begins to ask himself, she was perfectly sane? When a body is found, the terms of the bizarre will suddenly seem less peculiar and far more menacing. But it isn't the only menace Gamache is facing. The investigation into what happened six months ago--the events that led to his suspension--has dragged on, into the dead of winter. And while most of the opioids he allowed to slip through his hands, in order to bring down the cartels, have been retrieved, there is one devastating exception. Enough narcotic to kill thousands has disappeared into inner city Montreal. With the deadly drug about to hit the streets, Gamache races for answers.

I was about to decide he was losing his moral compass. Those kind eyes were getting a little deceitful. But, there is redemption. ( )

Armand Gamache accepts being one of three executors of an elderly woman's will whom he doesn't know. Strange consequences begin to occur when a body is found.

Another good one. ( )

Chief Superintendant Armand Gamache has been suspended from his role as head of the Surete du Quebec because in a previous case he chose the lesser of two evils and allowed a massive consignment of the drug carfentinyl to escape confiscation. While awaiting his fate he becomes involved in a very strange affair: he is selected as executor to the will of a woman he hardly knew.

Unravelling the mysteries behind the will leads to lies, the uncovering of other crimes and murder. Meanwhile Gamache forces an ex-addict protege of his to be expelled from the police academy and pushed back onto the streets where she searches for the elusive supplier of the carfentinyl before it can flood the streets.

Much of the book is set in Three Pines, the small village outsaide Montreal where Gamache lives, and is very much an hommage to the characters and lives that make up Gamache’s home life and circle of friends. His ordered life is facing many changes in his family, friends, work colleagues, his job and he is not entirely sure how to react.

This is well-plotted, exciting, eminently readable crime thriller with clever juxtapositions of dark and light. This is Penny’s first novel after losing her long time partner and has an overall sad and elegiac quality.

Very highly recommended. ( )

Going back to paper copy was actually difficult at first. I had forgotten how choppy Penny's writing is. Or has gotten. It annoyed me. At first.
But I got pulled back into Three Pines and the familiarity of the characters. The story drew me in and I realized I can go faster with my eyes over those choppy sentences than I can with my ears, even when I put the audio to 1.2x.
So three days after I started I finished. I still don't get why the characters still complain about Ruth, but I think they do it out of habit in this one, or so it less often because she is less of a leading role in this particular mystery. LaCoste's speech does not sound at all like some recovering from gunshot to the head, but whatever. The little girl in the red hat? No idea what her role was. I thought she was a hallucination. But the book is like a bag of chips and I can't stop going back for more once I open it. How long between this one and the next one? Hard to say. But it is (at this point) the final one, so I may let the anticipation sit for a while. ( )
