6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Toni Osborne TOP 100 REVIEWER on July 7 2008
Format: Paperback
3rd novel featuring Chief Inspector Gamache

It is spring time in Three Pines; some of the villagers have decided to celebrate Easter with a séance at the Old Hadley House, hoping to rid the town of its evil spirits that have plagued it for decades ---- suddenly one of the attendees collapses apparently scared to death.... Or was it murder? Due to mysterious circumstances, Chief Inspector Armand Gamache and his team from the Sureté du Québec are dispatched to this picturesque village. Once there, they probe into the lives of the villagers, questioning and listening to them carefully in order to find the truth, what they uncover is treachery and betrayal.

Meanwhile, the case forces Gamache to confront his past, enemies he has created high up within the Force want his hide, how far will they go to get it...who is the Judas within his own team?.......who can he trust?.....

To obtain full enjoyment of this fantastic series, one should read the novels in order. The author's character development is amazing; not only do you genuinely love every one in spite of their flaws but each one comes to life in a manner you can relate to. You tend to sympathize with Armand Gamache, a brilliant and compassionate Inspector as he confronts his own ghosts while investigating the case. Ms Penny is a superb storyteller; you find a bit of everything: humour, jealousy and a multitude of other human emotions, all centered on a plot full of intrigue. The setting in this book could be referred to as mystical and mythical, a story set in an idyllic village where the author has written about the murder of other residents, how far will Ms Penny go....I can't wait to read her next novel

This is an amazing series by Louise Penny. I have bought and read all issues except t\the Hangman, which I cannot find anywhere unless Im willing to pay over $100 for a paperback. I understand the book is a first edition signed by the author but too expensive for me. I will continue to look.

This novel digs deeper into the dark side of the people of Three Pines as well as those who are out to discredit Inspector Gamache. The atmosphere is heavy and uncomfortable. The reader is on edge throughout the entire story - first concerned with the death of a resident as well as the plot against Gamache. Gamache has a 'je he sais quoi' about him that is endearing , attractive, and comfortable.

Make that 4!/2 * . The main plot kept me guessing all the way through. The subplot seemed to be a little corny
in it's reasoning but then what goes on in the hearts of men is anybody's guess.
The book title is aptly named as we out-of-book characters have just gone thru The Cruellest Month.

This was a very enjoyable read. Inspector Gamache is portrayed as both a simple and kind individual yet he is a complex individual who has a keen awareness of human emotion and its value in solving cases.
I didn't want to put the book down. From beginning to end it was intriguing.

Again Louise Penny has done a fantastic job of merging mystery with character development. I absolutely love her characters and would like to visit this town is Three Pines to meet them all. Every book develops each character more and I appreciate how they could all be so real in a small Canadian town.
