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.… (mere)

Summary: Gamache and Beauvoir are on leave after an attempt to rescue an agent goes terribly wrong. As each faces their own traumas they get caught up in murder investigations in Quebec City and Three Pines.

Armand Gamache and Jean Guy Beauvoir are wounded and desperately in need of healing in both body and mind. Young Agent Paul Morin, who we met in the previous novel, had been kidnapped while his partner was killed. The kidnapper, on an untraceable phone, tells Gamache that Morin is strapped to a bomb which will detonate in 24 hours, or if he and Gamache stop talking to each other. While Gamache talks, the team, with a critical contribution by Yvette Nichol, discovers both Morin’s location, and a much bigger plot in which this is a diversion. Gamache leads the raid to rescue Morin, which turns out to be an ambush. Agents die, and Beauvoir is wounded as is Gamache, nearly fatally, as he rescues a downed agent. He recovers enough to lead the cortege, but their wounds, their memories of the ambush and the loss of fellow officers remain to be healed. These are among the dead to be grieved and buried and the tale of the kidnapping, desperate investigation, and fatal raid are gradually unfolded over the course of the novel as each remembers fragments and re-tells them.

Gamache has gone to stay in Quebec City with his old Chief, Emile, who had mentored him. It is the time of the Winter Carnival. To distract himself, Gamache and his German shepherd Henri go to the Literary and Historical Library, an archive maintained by the English community amid a sea of French-speaking Quebecois. He spends time investigating a historical battle until–you guessed it–a murder happens in the basement of the library. Augustin Renaud, considered by many an old crank seeking the burial place of Champlain, Quebec’s founder, had asked to speak to the Lit and His (as it was called) board and was refused. The next morning, the phones were out of order, and the repairman found the cause. A dead Renaud had been buried in the basement, cutting the phone line. The local inspector asks Gamache to assist, with the board as prime suspects, and a growing trail of evidence that pointed toward the possible burial place of Champlain. Meanwhile, dead of night walks with Henri and conversations with Emile don’t, of themselves heal Gamache but create the space where he can.

Meanwhile, Beauvoir has returned to Three Pines. He and Gamache had arrested the murderer of a hermit hidden deep in a forest near Three Pines, as told in the previous novel. Yet persistent letters to Gamache of a villager with one question, lead him to ask Beauvoir, ostensibly there to recover, to make sure they had arrested and convicted the right suspect. Beauvoir, initially convinced that they had the right person in custody, begins to uncover evidence and question assumptions, leading to doubts of his own, and the disturbing possibility that the murderer is still in Three Pines. Meanwhile, the most unlikely relationship between him and Ruth Zardo, continues to unfold as Beauvoir processes his own trauma.

Penny masterfully weaves narratives of the search and rescue attempt that went so horribly wrong with the “informal” investigations in Quebec City and Three Pines. Will Gamache find the murderer of the buried Renaud? Will he unravel the mystery that has stumped so many of the burial place of Champlain, and what does the Lit and His have to do with it? Will Beauvoir satisfy the doubts he and Gamache have, or find the real murderer of the hermit? And will any of this help the two of them heal and let the dead lay buried?

One glimpses in Penny’s account what post-traumatic stress can be like for peace officers when their worst nightmare comes true. Penny portrays the wisdom of friends (or whatever you might call it with Ruth) who create the safety where trauma can be faced without trying to pry it open. And we glimpse two men struggling and willing to face the possibility that they had subjected the wrong person to the pain of arrest, trial, and imprisonment. Having survived an ordeal that went terribly wrong, we see a remarkable quality in these two men, the facing of mistakes and the growing and learning from them. ( )

Arman Gamache is in Quebec City, recovering from severe wounds suffered in a raid gone wrong, for this murder mystery. Augustin Renaud was a fanatic hunting for the remains of Samuel de Champlain, digging in various basements around old town Quebec City. He is found dead one morning in the basement of the Literary and Historical Society, run by a group of English. There are also two other crimes being reported on--the murder of a Surete agent and kidnapping of another agent, Paul Morin, which had previously resulted in several Surete agents' deaths and woundings, all to draw attention away from the planned bombing of the La Grande hydroelectric damn; and the re-investigation of the murder of the Hermit in Three Pines by Jean-Guy Beauvoir (also recovering from wounds suffered in the same raid gone wrong) for which Olivier had been convicted and is currently serving his sentence in prison.

Gamache and Beauvoir are recovering from an operation gone wrong, Gamache in Quebec City visiting his old mentor and Beauvoir in Three Pines following up for Gamache on the hermit murder. Gamache is drawn into a murder in the Literary and Historical Society building and Beauvoir uncovers more information in Three Pines. These two investigations are interwoven with the story of the operation gone wrong that has impacted these two men so profoundly. Full of details Canadian history, particularly around Quebec City and it's founder Samuel de Champlain, and current social strife in Canadian culture that ground the story add to the mood set by the descriptions of the characters and places. I really enjoyed the suspense created by parceling out the details of the operation gone wrong, adding extra tension to the other two investigations.

This story has three strong story lines and it works. The case of the dead hermit continues and a new case, following the death of a many obsessed with finding the body of Champlain, the founder of Quebec. Woven throughout are the memories of a tragic case that had happened recently, wounding Chief Inspector Armand Gamache and killing several of his officers. He goes to Quebec City to recover and finds himself involved in a case there. I love all these books, but I think this has been the best so far. ( )

My absolute favorite so far in the series. I was enamored of the structure of this mystery...combining three investigations into one short period of time. I am reading these in order and I would highly recommend reading #5 before #6. Although she does a good job retelling the plot of The Brutal Telling (#5), I was very invested in the outcome as I had already been ensconced in the previous plotline.
I am 100% sold on this author and her series. ( )
