Description
In this fourth mystery in Louise Penny's Ellis, Anthony, and Agatha Award–winning series, Quebecois chief inspector Armand Gamache and his wife are celebrating their anniversary at Bellechasse manor, not far from the town of Three Pines. But when one of their fellow guests is killed by a toppling statue of her own father, Gamache calls on his men to investigate. Penny has been widely lauded for this classically plotted mystery series, at once literate, charming, and clever.

"Readers who haven't discovered Louise Penny and her Armand Gamache series yet are in for a treat. In the latest entry, Chief Inspector Gamache of the Sûreté du Québec has traveled to the luxurious and remote Manoir Bellechasse with his wife, Reine-Marie. Each year they return to the manor to celebrate their wedding anniversary on July 1, Canada Day. This year they are fellow guests with the Finney family. Two of the members of that family are old friends Peter and Clara Morrow from the village of Three Pines on the Rivière Bella Bella, where the first three books in this series took place. Not only are we treated to Penny's usual rich characterizations, but the atmospheric and beautiful language will make you want to take your next vacation at the manoir. Of course, a crime does occur, and Gamache ends up on a busman's holiday. One of the eccentric Finney family members dies in a very grotesque manner, and Gamache calls in his team to help solve the mystery. First, Armand has to figure out why the victim was killed, and, in fact, it wouldn't hurt to determine how the deed was done. Suspects abound, naturally, and Gamache sorts through them with aplomb. One of the best traditional mystery series currently being published."—Booklist (starred review)
