This series just keeps getting better. I particularly enjoy the way Penny weaves in story lines, whose seeds she planted in previous books, that come to fruition a few books down the line. Gamache and Beauvoir's relationship is filled with a beautiful tension she has nuanced through the entire series. I also can't help but notice that Gamache's talents - watchfulness, patience, the ability to ask simple yet direct questions, and the ego-less way he acknowledges what he doesn't know provide a good model for offering pastoral care, not just for solving murders. I was glad this book was not set in Three Pines, for a change of pace, and enjoyed the descriptions of the Abbey of St. Gilbert and its residents. Can't wait for the next one!
