Bury Your Dead

Bury Your Dead

As Quebec City shivers in the grip of winter, its ancient stone walls cracking in the cold, Chief Inspector Armand Gamache plunges into the strangest case of his celebrated career. A man has been brutally murdered in one of the city’s oldest buildings – a library where the English citizens of Quebec safeguard their history. And the death opens a door into the past, exposing a mystery that has lain dormant for centuries . . . a mystery Gamache must solve if he’s to catch a present-day killer.

Steeped in luscious atmosphere, brimming with the suspense and wit that have earned Louise Penny a massive global following, Bury Your Dead is the most ingenious suspense novel of the year.

Look out for: Book 7 in the Chief Inspector Gamache series, TRICK OF THE LIGHT
In the green depths of spring, morning breaks on a woman splayed in a bed of flowers – her eyes wide, her neck broken.
Her death is a mystery; so is the woman herself. But as Chief Inspector Armand Gamache and his team peer into the dark corners of the victim’s past, they expose a secret that rots at the very heart of their community – a secret that will implicate someone they’ve trusted for years. And as Gamache knows too well, in the flickering shadows of death, the truth may be just a trick of the light.

Reviews

Her beautifully elegiac sixth book interweaves three story lines while plumbing the depths of Gamache's grief. The result is sophisticated and moving - her best yet
People Magazine
Penny's first five crime novels in her Armand Gamache series have all been outstanding, but her latest is the best yet, a true tour de force of storytelling....Penny hits every note perfectly in what is one of the most elaborately constructed and remarkably moving mysteries in years.
