The Brutal Telling
The Brutal Telling
Chief Inspector Armand Gamache Series, Book 5
by Louise Penny
"Chaos is coming, old son." With those words the peace of Three Pines is shattered. As families prepare to head back to the city and children say goodbye to summer, a stranger is found murdered in the village bistro and antiques store. Once again, Chief Inspector Gamache and his team are called in to strip back layers of lies, exposing both treasures and rancid secrets buried in the wilderness. No one admits to knowing the murdered man, but as secrets are revealed, chaos begins to close in on the beloved bistro owner, Olivier. What past did he leave behind, and why has he buried himself in this tiny village? As Olivier grows more frantic, a trail of clues and treasures—from first editions of Charlotte's Web and Jane Eyre to a spider web with the word "WOE" woven in it—lead the Chief Inspector deep into the woods, across the continent in search of the truth, and finally back to Three Pines as the little village braces for the final, brutal telling.
