It is Winter Carnival in Quebec City, bitterly cold and surpassingly beautiful. Chief Inspector Armand Gamache has come not to join the revels but to recover from an investigation gone hauntingly wrong. But violent death is inescapable, even in the apparent sanctuary of the Literary and Historical Society— where an obsessive historian’s quest for the remains of the founder of Quebec, Samuel de Champlain, ends in murder. Could a secret buried with Champlain for nearly 400 years be so dreadful that someone would kill to protect it? Although he is supposed to be on leave, Gamache cannot walk away from a crime that threatens to ignite long-smoldering tensions between the English and the French. Meanwhile, he is receiving disquieting letters from the village of Three Pines, where beloved Bistro owner Olivier was recently convicted of murder. “It doesn't make sense,” Olivier’s partner writes every day. “He didn't do it, you know.” As past and present collide in this astonishing novel, Gamache must relive the terrible event of his own past before he can bury his dead.

3.5 Bury Your Feelings
Maybe I'm still numb from The Brutal Telling. Maybe I'm tired of pivotal past events being fed to me in disjointed bits and pieces. Maybe those pivotal past events needed their own book to do them justice. Whatever the reason, I just did not connect to this book on anywhere near the same emotional l...

5.0 Remarkable, breathtaking, devastating
This book. This book is the reason to read the five books that preceded it. Gamache has been called to a dead body in the basement of the Literary and Historical Society, the repository of English speaking history in old Quebec. He begins to question the ending and conviction at the end of the bru...

4.5 Bury Your Dead
This book was heartbreaking. Oh how I cried. When the story starts, you immediately know something horrible has happened. Woven into two solid and concurrent mysteries are Gamache's memories and flashbacks, along with his second in command's, telling us what happened that has left them wounded an...

4.0 Bury Your Dead
Having grown up in Canada, I think I most appreciated Penny's Quebec City setting and mood. Her descriptions of walking outdoors in frigid temperatures, having one's soul exposed to the brittle elements, are spot on. My first Penny novel; won't be my last.
