The brilliant new novel in the New York Times bestselling
series by Louise Penny, one of the most acclaimed crime
writers of our time
No outsiders are ever admitted to the monastery of
Saint-Gilbert-Entre-les-Loups, hidden deep in the wilderness
of Quebec, where two dozen cloistered monks live in peace
and prayer. They grow vegetables, they tend chickens, they
make chocolate. And they sing. Ironically, for a community
that has taken a vow of silence, the monks have become
world-famous for their glorious voices, raised in ancient
chants whose effect on both singer and listener is so
profound it is known as â€śthe beautiful mystery.â€ť
But when the renowned choir director is murdered, the lock
on the monasteryâ€™s massive wooden door is drawn back to
admit Chief Inspector Armand Gamache and Jean-Guy Beauvoir
of the SĂ»retĂ© du QuĂ©bec. There they discover disquiet
beneath the silence, discord in the apparent harmony. One of
the brothers, in this life of prayer and contemplation, has
been contemplating murder. As the peace of the monastery
crumbles, Gamache is forced to confront some of his own
demons, as well as those roaming the remote corridors.
Before finding the killer, before restoring peace, the Chief
must first consider the divine, the human, and the cracks in
Chief Inspector Gamache
