“Chief Inspector Gamache and his wife are on vacation at a remote lakeside retreat when the Finney family joins them at the Manoir for a reunion and dedication of a statue of the father. In the evening after the unveiling of the statue a huge storm rages and in the morning Julia, one of the grown Finney siblings is found dead beneath her father’s statue. From that point on Gamache is at work and not vacation. Filled with interesting characters, fascinating clues, a family filled with animosity and hidden secrets this mystery is wonderful and keeps you guessing until the very end. This is wonderfully narrated on the CDs and help you get beyond the French that peppers the book as it’s set in Canada. I look forward to reading and/or listening to more of Penny’s books.
