THE BRUTAL TELLING A CHIEF INSPECTOR GAMACHE NOVEL By Louise Penny This excellent, well written mystery is the 5th in the series set in the small, quaint Quebec village of Three Pines. When the body of an unknown old man turns up in the town’s bistro, the investigation leads Inspector Gamache to the victim’s remote building full of priceless antiquities. There is a large quantity of everything from first edition books to European treasures that disappeared during World War II. What follows is a fascinating read with a marvelously drawn cast of colorful local characters that inhabit the village and, a multi faceted and intricate plot that just continues to get better with every page. Ms. Penny writes with intelligence, depth and a wonderful elegance. Very good read.
