Can Armand Gamache clear his name?
A stranger has named Armand Gamache, former head of the Sûreté du Québec, one of the executors of her will. The others are Three Pines bookseller Myrna Landers and a young builder, neither of whom ever met the elderly woman. The will is so odd that the woman must have been delusional. But what if she was sane?
When a body is found, the terms of the bizarre will seem far more menacing. But it isn’t the only menace Gamache faces.
The investigation into the events that led to his suspension drags on. And while most of the opioids he let slip though his hands to bring down the cartels have been retrieved, enough narcotic to kill thousands has disappeared in Montreal. With the deadly drug about to hit the streets, Gamache races for answers.
“Ms. Penny's books mix some classic elements of the police procedural with a deep-delving psychology, as well as a sorrowful sense of the precarious nature of human goodness.”—The New York Times
“Penny is an expert at pulling away the surface of her characters to expose their deeper—and often ugly—layers, always doing so with a direct but compassionate hand.”—Kirkus Reviews
