Louise Penny checks in

Former Thunder Bay resident, mystery writer Louise Penny tells us about her latest book in the Inspector Gammach series

As you know, book 5 in the Chief Inspector Gamache novels is coming out this fall, in late September, early October. It’s called THE BRUTAL TELLING, and here is a little bit about it:

In the heart of the forest, two men sit at midnight, haunted by fear of discovery. In a few hours’ time, one of them will be dead, his secrets following him to the grave... When C. I. Gamache is called to investigate a murder in a picturesque Three Pines, he finds a village in chaos. A man has been found, bludgeoned to death, and there is no sign of a weapon, a motive or even the dead man’s name. Gamache and his colleagues, Inspector Beauvoir and Agent Isabelle Lacoste, start to dig under the skin of this peaceful haven for clues. They slowly uncover a trail of stolen treasure, mysterious codes and a shameful history that begins to shed light on the victim’s identity – and point to a horrible killer.

All I can says is "Yikes!"
