Author(s): Louise Penny

Popular Fiction

The third novel in our multi-award-winning Canadian crime series featuring Chief Inspector Gamache of the Surete du Quebec and set in the picturesque village of Three Pines.The novel takes place at Easter -- traditionally a time for death, and for spirits coming back from the dead! Gamache is called to Three Pines when a seance attended by locals goes horrifyingly wrong, and a woman is found on the floor, apparently scared to death. Something frightened Madeleine Favreau so much that it literally stopped her heart, but Gamache knows her killer is from this world, not the next. Meanwhile, Gamache's own enemies high up within the Surete du Quebec are moving in for the kill, and the Inspector waits for the Judas within his own team to strike. But what exactly does the traitor want and, more importantly, how far will they go to ensure Gamache's downfall?
