The Good Book Guide Review

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.
