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. ( )

Wow! Many moving parts and many knots to be untied. All done splendidly in this unexpected but very well crafted finale to this great series. All the players, Three Pines, Ruth and her duck, etc play their usual roles with aplomb as Gamache unravels who murdered whom by following the money; a lot of money. To provide an abrasive harmony Amelia seeks a very destructive stash of drugs. As the major characters retire or ride off into their respective sunsets one hopes that a new series based upon Isabel and Amelia supported by the Three Pines "eminence grise" could survive and thrive.
