Chief Inspector Armand Gamache returns to Three Pines, a small, peacefull village once again assaulted by murder. This time it's an unknown man, who's lived rough but is clean - propre as they say in this Quebecoise community and he's found in Olivier's cafe.

The gentle narrative of Louise Penny's writing and close friendships of Three Pines calms the spirit, making the fear and suspicion of the tale jump out at you, even more alarming that might otherwise be. There's lots of plot lines to follow, interesting for the reader and confusing for Inspector Gamache and his team.
