Chief Inspector Armand Gamache of the homicide division of the Montreal Surete and his wife, Reine-Marie, are on vacation. He didn’t think violence was the answer, encouraged Canadians to not volunteer to fight, and apparently was responsible for delaying Canada’s entry into the war. wrote: "Louise is very important to Canadians for settings and politics of our own, from the get go.

His parents with their societal issues and their personal issues had certainly warped the lives of their children as we are shown time and again throughout this book. Chief Inspector Gamache is a different type of investigator; he solves more by intuition and feelings rather than logic. And you can count on them here for some spiteful digs at each other as all are investigated as possible murder suspects. Elliot and Julia had made some sort of a connection – perhaps a flirtatious one – before she was killed.

Much of this behavior is a holdover from childhood, when the children competed for the their father's love and attention. The hunt is on and it is left to Ms Penny to lay out the clues for the reader and monsieur Gamache alike. When Bean is being held over the edge of the roof by the murderer, Bert Phinney is the first one to have his hands up, arms outstretched, to try and catch her should she fall. What was to come of that conversation was one of the most rewarding relationships I’ve found since becoming a publicist.

The Gamaches seem so at home in the splendid, isolated Manoir, with its beautiful robber-baron-era main building and its spectacular lake. This book has two main themes: cowardice/bravery and, as Gamache says, “paradise lost”—having it all and losing it.Later, Pierre confesses that he killed Julia because he was bitter that her imprisoned, soon-to-be ex-husband had bankrupted his father, along with many others, by running a pyramid scheme. Charles Morrow withheld his wealth from his children, and tried to instill a spirit of gamesmanship and risk so they could learn to become self-reliant. It does not take place in the beloved Three Pines, true, but Louise begins a journey here that explores Quebec and its history a bit deeper. Other characters in the story include Madame Clementine Dubois - owner of the Manoir Bellechasse; maître d' Pierre Patenaude - a long-time employee who runs an impeccable dining room and trains the wait staff; Elliot Byrne, a new waiter who's insolent to Pierre and makes fun of the guests behind their backs; Colleen, a young gardener; Yves Pelletier - the sculptor who created the statue of Charles Morrow; and several residents of Three Pines, including the innkeeper Gabri and the disgruntled poet Ruth and her duck Rosa.

She wants to hide the identity of the killer until the last possible moment, and then reveals it during the overly dramatic, and ridiculous, climax of the novel. Gamache alerts his fellow members of the Homicide squad with the Sûreté du Québec, turning this quiet community into a hive of action. While many would expect Peter and his family to react, none are overly shocked or doubled by the event, soon deemed a murder. To stop noticing the malevolent inflections that rode into polite conversation on the backs of reasonable words. There is also a lot more revealed about Gamache’s background, his childhood and upbringing, which adds an extra, welcome layer to the novel and the series.Upon arrival at Manoir Bellechasse, the Gamaches learn that they will not have the solitude to which they are accustomed, as a family reunion brings much excitement and fills the rest of the rooms. And the reason for this family reunion is to unveil a statue in Charles Morrow’s image that will sit forever on the grounds of the Manoir Bellechasse.
