Publisher Description

A Rule Against Murder, the fourth book in Louise Penny's award-winning and critical revered mystery series features the wise and beleaguered Inspector Armand Gamache.

It is the height of summer, and Armand and Reine-Marie Gamache are celebrating their wedding anniversary at Manoir Bellechasse, an isolated, luxurious inn not far from the village of Three Pines. But they're not alone. The Finney family—rich, cultured, and respectable—has also arrived for a celebration of their own.

The beautiful Manoir Bellechasse might be surrounded by nature, but there is something unnatural looming. As the heat rises and the humidity closes in, some surprising guests turn up at the family reunion, and a terrible summer storm leaves behind a dead body. It is up to Chief Inspector Gamache to unearth secrets long buried and hatreds hidden behind polite smiles. The chase takes him to Three Pines, into the dark corners of his own life, and finally to a harrowing climax.

Rule of Murder

What graceful words are used to unroll this fabulous story. I never quite figure out "who dun It", but the more I read of Ms. Penny's books, the harder I read and concentrate on the clues, trying to figure out the ending before I get there. Intriguing, suspenseful, romantic and every character a story of their own. Looking to the next book to begin another adventure.

Only ok

Maybe because it is not set in three pines,unlike the previous books, but the tempo was a bit slow.I also felt the Morrows were too unidimensional.

A Rule against Murder

This is one of her more tedious books, with lots of extreme characters that were, for me, difficult to keep straight. Even after finishing the book, I’m not certain I understood who did what to whom and why. Not one of her better books.
