But he lied about one thing in his past – that he was in captivity in Burma during World War II, one of the most inhumane, and unsurvivable places to be during the war. What was to come of that conversation was one of the most rewarding relationships I’ve found since becoming a publicist. He’s one of the new servers and openly challenges Pierre’s authority, causing mischief among the ranks.

Gamache and Beauvior spend a good bit of time puzzling over why Julia had her arms outstretched, as if she were hugging the statue to her. The electricity goes out, torrential rain pounds at the windows and violent thunder and lightning attack the area.It was such an extraordinary thing to say it stopped the ravenous Inspector Beauvoir from taking another bite of his roast beef on baguette.

Later, Pierre confesses that he killed Julia because he was bitter that her imprisoned, soon-to-be ex-husband had bankrupted his father, along with many others, by running a pyramid scheme. By disconnecting from their own truth, is not only the sanest thing to do under their circumstances, it is also the only way they could survive their own memories. Reading this for a second time was interesting because it gave me a chance to notice things I probably didn’t notice the first time around. The investigation, while focused on finding the killer, also needs to determine how exactly the killer pushed the heavy statue off its pedestal, a mystery that confounds Gamache.It seems unlikely that someone outside of the Manoir could have committed the murder, as the setting is completely remote.

Gamache alerts his fellow members of the Homicide squad with the Sûreté du Québec, turning this quiet community into a hive of action.But five years later, it’s fun to think about, and remember the context when this extraordinary book came into the world. It is only with the arrival of Peter and Clara Morrow—residents of Three Pines—that the Gamaches feel a connection to this larger group. The detail and bucolic nature of the pieces invite me to keep reading, as though I have developed an addiction for all that is Gamache.

I had the utmost pleasure reading it, with its enchanting prose, exquisite storytelling, and a vivid cast of characters.

When Bean is being held over the edge of the roof by the murderer, Bert Phinney is the first one to have his hands up, arms outstretched, to try and catch her should she fall. I did not think that the murderer, so excellent in his work and so skilled at training young people with sensitivity (well, except for that rebel Eliot at first) and so fine a member of that threesome who ran the manoir, without showing some characteristics of the obsessive hate necessary to carry out that action. Finney and her husband Charles had ‘really loved’ their children but had been awkward in showing it, and that the ‘misinterpretation of love’ was behind all those character distortions we saw in their grown children.
