TITLE: THE CRUELLEST MONTH
AUTHOR: LOUISE PENNY
Details: nr. 3 C.I. Armand Gamache Mystery
In the village of Three Pines a woman dies during a seance, apparently scared to death. But, as Gamache and his team investigate, it soon becomes clear that what appeared super natural is in fact, brutal murder.
The murdered woman appeared to be loved by all, but as secrets emerge it becomes clear that so much love can lead to resentment, and an abundance of suspects surfaces.
And while the investigation progresses, there are those among his colleagues who will stop at nothing to bring Gamache down, destroy him.
And with his enemies having infiltrated his team, and the leader being someone Gamache would never suspect, he has to be careful before both his career and his life are destroyed.
A mystery written in the time honoured tradition of Agatha Christie, but better plotted, more involved and with an apparent simplicity that makes it all the more brilliant.
