Publisher Description

The wise and beleaguered Chief Inspector Armand Gamache returns to Three Pines The Brutal Telling, the fifth book in Louise Penny's #1 New York Times bestselling series.

Chaos is coming, old son.

With those words the peace of Three Pines is shattered. Everybody goes to Olivier's Bistro—including a stranger whose murdered body is found on the floor. When Chief Inspector Gamache is called to investigate, he is dismayed to discover that Olivier's story is full of holes. Why are his fingerprints all over the cabin that's uncovered deep in the wilderness, with priceless antiques and the dead man's blood? And what other secrets and layers of lies are buried in the seemingly idyllic village?

Gamache follows a trail of clues and treasures—from first editions of Charlotte's Web and Jane Eyre to a spiderweb with a word mysteriously woven in it—into the woods and across the continent, before returning to Three Pines to confront the truth and the final, brutal telling.

*BONUS CONTENT: This edition of Brutal Telling includes a new introduction from the author and a discussion guide.

Io leggo ,

Probably her best one yet

Together with Penny,s first Gamache book this the best of the series. The depth of the personalities, the descriptions of the loves and fears, and of the countryside are more haunting and beautiful than ever. And the solution to the crime is so simple yet so complicated.

Brilliant with mouth watering dishes.

Perfect pacing, colorful and complex characters and a twisty plot with many surprises. Loved this one too. Highly recommend.

The Brutal Telling

I have started to read this Gamache series from its beginning. This Brutal Telling is very poetic with its suspense and underlying story. Very interesting history brought in! Still can’t believe the end! I will continue reading this series as I know the characters from Three Pines return in future books. I really enjoyed The Brutal Telling!
