Christmas is coming, and things are going badly in the Montreal Homicide Department; most of Gamache’s best agents have left, and enemies surround him. So he’s almost relieved when Myrna Landers from the village of Three Pines calls to report a friend Constance Ouellet, once one of the most famous women in the world, missing. As hostile forces close in, Gamache is embroiled in a mystery fraught with deceit and danger, with his own safety and the reputation of his department at stake.
'Clever, full of twists and turns, a wonderfully satisfying -- and moving -- addition to Penny's atmospheric, distinctive series.'
'Penny's elegant style is deeply satisfying, while Gamache is contemplative even when under pressure, and remains a man you want to spend time.'
'Louise Penny twists and turns the plot expertly tripping the reader up just at the moment you think you might have solved the mystery.'
'Subtle, elegant and beautifully written.'
'Another bravura performance from an author who has reinvented the village mystery as profoundly as Dashiell Hammett transformed the detective novel.'
'With skilful plotting and gift for creating atmosphere, Penny weaves a dark and suspenseful tale of deadly secrets, professional machinations and surprising twists.'
