BURY YOUR DEAD

Louise Penny. BURY YOUR DEAD. 2010.

Chief Inspector Armand Gamache is resting up in Quebec City with Emile Comeau, his old mentor, when he agrees to help investigate a murder of a Champlain fanatic whose body is found in the basement of an English-language historical society. As he investigates, Gamache re-lives the trauma of a recent hostage-taking terrorist take-down which led to four dead officers. The funeral was national news. Both he and Jean-Guy Beauvoir are injured.The details of the terrorist plan are sketchy, helping us anticipate further revelations. 

Jean-Guy has been sent to review a murder in Three Pines, to ensure that the convicted felon is really guilty. 

Beautiful evocations of the Quebec winter.
