The brilliant 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 "the beautiful mystery."
But when the renowned choir director is murdered, the lock on the monastery's massive wooden door is drawn back to admit Chief Inspector Armand Gamache and Jean-Guy Beauvoir of the Sûreté du Québec. 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 between.
The Beautiful Mystery is the winner of the 2012 Agatha Award for best novel, the 2013 Anthony Award for best novel and the 2013 Macavity Award for best novel.… (lisätietoja)

Ok I confess, I read half of the book then skipped to the end. After the last book ended with a paranoid drug addicted Beauvoir, this one started as though all was hunky dory. Beauvoir and Gamache daughter Annie are having an affair, everyone is happy, happy. Then Gamache and Beauvoir get called to a crime. In a hidden monastery. Where there are only 24 monks. Oops, 23 now! It’s pretty obvious only 2 of the 23 have any kind of motive for murder, and soon becomes obvious which one is the guilty party. But we slog along through half the book, eating chocolate covered blueberries and attending multiple religious services each day when suddenly ... a plane! It’s going to fly into the monastery! No, after buzzing the place 3 times we hear a splash! We all run out to see... the plane taxiing into the dock. Out steps none other than, Francour, Gamaches arch enemy. Here’s where I skipped to the end. Francour gets Beauvoir addicted to painkillers again, convinced him Gamache left him to die alone, and they leave Gamache barefaced. Oh, yeah, the monk is tricked into confessing.

Look, I get these are Ms Penny’s stories and characters but that doesn’t mean I have to like em. If this is your cup of tea, read with my blessing. Not my bag, sorry ( )

Murder in a cloistered monastery becomes complicated as Gamache's vengeful boss shows up to control and interfere. Armand and Jean-Guy are still fighting the demons unleased by the death of their colleagues in a previous case. The history and allure of "Chant" seem to identify a significant motivation for the murder of the Prior. Lots of insights into history, people and locale are blended to make this a very intriguing and notable read, ( )

Ah, Chief Inspector Gamache and his sidekick Jean-Guy Beauvoir are now investigating a murder in a non-Three Pines location: a remote and very secretive monastery in Québec.
One gets to learn about the history of Gregorian chants in this one.
The arrival of an unexpected visitor who likes to play mind games results in a very irritating cliff hanger, turning this one into almost a psychological thriller. ( )

Book 8. Excellent story set in a monestary. KIRKUS REVIEWA prior?s murder takes Quebec?s Chief Inspector Armand Gamache and his sidekick, Inspector Jean-Guy Beauvoir, inside the walls of the monastery of Saint-Gilbert-Entre-les-Loupes.The Gilbertine order, long extinct except for the two dozen brothers who live on an island apart from the rest of the world, enforces silence on its members. In the absence of speech, a raised eyebrow or averted gaze can speak intense hostility. Now someone has found a new way to communicate such hostility: by bashing Frre Mathieu, the monastery?s choirmaster and prior, over the head. Gamache and Beauvoir soon find that the order is devoted heart and soul to Gregorian chant; that its abbot, Dom Philippe, has recruited its members from among the ranks of other orders for their piety, their musical abilities and a necessary range of domestic and maintenance skills; and that an otherworldly recording the brothers had recently made of Gregorian chants has sharply polarized the community between the prior?s men, who want to exploit their unexpected success by making another recording and speaking more widely of their vocation, and the abbot?s men, who greet the prospect of a more open and worldly community with horror. Nor are conflicts limited to the holy suspects. Gamache, Beauvoir and S?ret? Chief Superintendent Sylvain Franoeur, arriving unexpectedly and unwelcome, tangle over the proper way to conduct the investigation, the responsibility for the collateral damage in Gamache?s last case (A Trick of the Light, 2011, etc.), and Beauvoir?s loyalty to his two chiefs and himself in ways quite as violent as any their hosts can provide.Elliptical and often oracular, but also remarkably penetrating and humane. The most illuminating analogies are not to other contemporary detective fiction but to The Name of the Rose and Murder in the Cathedral.

The “beautiful mystery” of Penny’s eighth Gamache mystery refers to Gregorian chant, plainsong, and its mysterious allure and spiritual appeal even to the lay listener. Playing off the international sensation surrounding the 1994 release of recordings of the Benedictine Monks of Santo Domingo de Silos, The Beautiful Mystery finds Gamache and his loyal lieutenant, Inspector Jean-Guy Beauvoir, being called to a monastery to investigate the murder of a monk.

But it’s not just any monastery, and it’s not just any monk.

The mysterious Saint-Gilbert-Entre-les-Loups monastery existed in isolation for hundreds of years, two dozen monks living in the remote Quebec wilderness, accessible only by plane or boat, with a plain wooden door locked to the world. They are the last vestiges of the Gilbertines, an order of monks devoted to plainsong, who vanished during the Inquisition.

Their seclusion came to an end, however, with the release of a recording of their chants, a recording which became a sensation around the world, drawing pilgrims and the press, all of whom met with the locked door at the gate. The door opens to Gamache and Beauvoir, however, as they come to investigate the murder of Brother Mathieu, the choirmaster.

The choir of Saint-Gilbert-Entre-les-Loups became a sensation on the basis of a single recording, but that success has also created a fracture in the monastic community, “a civil war, fought with glances and small gestures,” which Gamache and Beauvoir discover early on in their investigation. That fracture makes everyone in the once close-knit community a suspect in the choirmaster’s murder.

The mystery – which is in itself compelling, and reminiscent, on the surface and unavoidably, of Umberto Eco’s The Name of the Rose – works as a catalyst for an ongoing series of inquiries into the nature of faith, loyalty and friendship, deepening familiar characters and developing relationships in a realistic, often painful fashion. It’s a stirring, thought- provoking read, less a matter of whodunit than a relentless questioning of why any of us do anything. The Beautiful Mystery satisfies as a mystery, and stands as a powerful literary novel in its own right, regardless of whether one has read the previous seven novels in the series.
