Bury Your Dead by Louise Penny

Bury Your Dead (Chief Inspector Armand Gamache, #6)Bury Your Dead by Louise Penny
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book is yet another tour de force by Louise Penny. Inspector Gamache seeks physical and mental healing after a particularly brutal incident taking the lives of some of his agents. The multiple story lines deftly woven together guide the reader through the intricacies of relationships among individuals, communities, and subgroups.

Much of the action occurs in Quebec City, Canada, in bitter winter weather. The police are investigating the death of an eccentric who is searching for the grave of Samuel de Champlain, the explorer who established the settlement of Quebec. Another story line involves efforts to rescue a kidnapped agent. Action and witty banter make this an engaging read. Penny's stories always impart charm and humor. This book is exceptional even for this author.

TEASER: "Now there is no more loneliness. Closing his eyes, he let the voice loose to play, to run around in his head, to laugh and tell him once again about breaking his first violin, a tiny one lent by the school, worth more money than they had and his mother mending it and handing it back to the distraught boy, reassuring him, 'Things are strongest where they're broken. Don't worry.' "

I have yet to read any of her books, but I've heard wonderful things about them! :) I work in a bookshop and a lot of people ask about her! Perhaps I should check out one of her books.

My TT!

I'd still rather a violin that has never been broken to begin with. Still, I can see the positive character development here.
