Description

It is Winter Carnival in Quebec City, bitterly cold and surpassingly beautiful. Chief Inspector Armand Gamache has come not to join the revels but to recover from an investigation gone hauntingly wrong. But violent death is inescapable, even in the apparent sanctuary of the Literary and Historical Society— where an obsessive historian’s quest for the remains of the founder of Quebec, Samuel de Champlain, ends in murder. Could a secret buried with Champlain for nearly 400 years be so dreadful that someone would kill to protect it? Although he is supposed to be on leave, Gamache cannot walk away from a crime that threatens to ignite long-smoldering tensions between the English and the French. Meanwhile, he is receiving disquieting letters from the village of Three Pines, where beloved Bistro owner Olivier was recently convicted of murder. “It doesn't make sense,” Olivier’s partner writes every day. “He didn't do it, you know.” As past and present collide in this astonishing novel, Gamache must relive the terrible event of his own past before he can bury his dead.

From Publishers Weekly

Aug 02, 2010 – At the start of Agatha-winner Penny's moving and powerful sixth Chief Insp. Armand Gamache mystery (after 2009's The Brutal Telling), Gamache is recovering from a physical and emotional trauma, the exact nature of which isn't immediately disclosed, in Qu bec City. When the body of Augustin Renaud, an eccentric who'd spent his life searching for the burial site of Samuel de Champlain, Qu bec's founder, turns up in the basement of the Literary and Historical Society, Gamache reluctantly gets involved in the murder inquiry. Meanwhile, Gamache dispatches his longtime colleague, Insp. Jean Guy Beauvoir, to the quiet town of Three Pines to revisit the case supposedly resolved at the end of the previous book. Few writers in any genre can match Penny's ability to combine heartbreak and hope in the same scene. Increasingly ambitious in her plotting, she continues to create characters readers would want to meet in real life. 100,000 first printing.

Customer Reviews

Bury Your Dead

This book is not only a good story, it is very well written. Both the heroes and the villains are likable. The Quebec history lessons and neighborhood descriptions make learning appealing. Loved it.

A gem

This the best of the Gamache novels. Even if it is not fully happening in 3 Pines, it makes me want to visit Quebec .it is 2 misteries in one and both are wonderfully developed.

A wonderful discovery!

French-English, city-village, past-present -- simultaneous mysteries abound around! Masterful, beautiful, sensitive writing by Canadian author Louise Penny. As you can tell, I am very impressed. I downloaded the book because of its consistently top ratings, and it more than met my expectations. This work must be listened to with brain actively engaged. A treat. 'Bury Your Dead' is the first of Penny's books I've read, but I certainly will be hunting up the previous books in the series. My download included an interview with the author.
Warning, there are many flash-backs and fast scene changes, with which the reader could be more helpful to the listener.
