#4 in the Chief Inspector Gamache Series

Ok – first things first – this book isn’t set in Three Pines!

But, it’s close, and Gamache is obviously front and center. He is visiting the Manoir Bellechasse in rural Quebec with Reine-Marie to celebrate their anniversary. A body turns up on the property, and a lovely And Then There Were None-esque plot is born. Gamache’s team shows up, and they get to know the transient young seasonal workers at the hotel, as well as the long-term employees who live there year round and all seem to be running from something. Eventually, Gamache reveals the murderer in a great classic mystery novel scene.

As always, this novel is less about a surprising and unique mystery and more about the people involved, especially Gamache and his team. We learn a bit more of Gamache’s backstory and see more of his relationship with his wife, both of which are extremely satisfying. It’s a worthy member of the series, and I enjoyed it from start to finish.
