Fiction. Mystery. HTML:

When an intricate old map is found stuffed into the walls of the bistro in Three Pines, it at first seems no more than a curiosity. But the closer the villagers look, the stranger it becomes.
Given to Armand Gamache as a gift the first day of his new job, the map eventually leads him to shattering secrets. To an old friend and older adversary. It leads the former Chief of Homicide for the Sûreté du Québec to places even he is afraid to go. But must.
And there he finds four young cadets in the Sûreté academy, and a dead professor. And, with the body, a copy of the old, odd map.
Everywhere Gamache turns, he sees Amelia Choquet, one of the cadets. Tattooed and pierced. Guarded and angry. Amelia is more likely to be found on the other side of a police line-up. And yet she is in the academy. A protégée of the murdered professor.
The focus of the investigation soon turns to Gamache himself and his mysterious relationship with Amelia, and his possible involvement in the crime. The frantic search for answers takes the investigators back to Three Pines and a stained glass window with its own horrific secrets.
For both Amelia Choquet and Armand Gamache, the time has come for a great reckoning.
#1 New York Times bestselling author Louise Penny pulls back the layers to reveal a brilliant and emotionally powerful truth in her latest spellbinding audiobook.
"Robert Bathurst puts his own indelible stamp on Chief Inspector Armand Gamache in Louise Penny's twelfth Three Pines puzzle. ...If you haven't listened to this series, start at once. You'll love your stay in Three Pines." - AudioFile Mag

Book 12 Her stories get better with each book.KIRKUS REVIEWWithin a police force, some members must be trained in the science, and art, of solving murders. But does this training create people highly capable of committing them?In Penny?s 12th Gamache novel, the former chief inspector takes up a new post. He?s not back to active investigatingnot after finally having the chance to heal in the Qu?b?cois village of Three Pines. But he can?t pass up the chance to complete his yearslong fight to end corruption within the S?ret?. By taking the job as commander of the S?ret? Academy, he can clean the rot from its wealthiest source¥the impressionable minds of cadet trainees. But Gamache makes a questionable decision in choosing to fight fire with fire. He decides to keep the most corrupt staff member, Serge ?the Duke? Leduc, the former No. 2 of the Academy. Gamache?s choices verge on madness when he announces he will also bring on Michel Br?beuf¥the original domino to fall within the S?ret?¥as an example of how corruption can ruin you. In his lessons, Gamache invites his cadets to internalize these mottos: ?Don't trust everything you think?¥words for bettering their minds and investigative skills¥as well as ?a man's foes shall be they of his own household,? from Matthew 10:36¥words of warning for what they may face ahead. These lessons become all too relevant when the Duke is found murdered and it?s clear the murderer is one of them. And then a copy of an old map is found at the crime scene, the same map Gamache is using as an exercise with four cadets he has brought under his wing and into his home (one lost soul in particular, freshman Amelia Choquet). Gamache is forced to accept that Leduc?s grip on the Academy is stronger and more suffocating than he thought possible. Is the household he has vowed to protect more unsafe than ever before? Young, learning minds are precious things, and Penny is here to make us aware of the evil out there, eager for a chance to mold¥and poison¥them.A chilling story that's also filled with hope¥a beloved Penny trademark.

(2016) Again one of her best in this series. Gamache has taken over the Surete's academy only to be confronted with the murder of one of his force's enemies in the halls of the school. We do learn a lot of back story to him and the town of Three Pines. Very good. Murderer was Michel Brebeuf who feared exposure from Leduc.

Interesting plot, good combination of old and new characters. Highly recommended. ( )
  jdolan787 | Jan 22, 2024 |
This one feels a bit more balanced, at least at the beginning, but there are some cheap tropes here. Not in a cozy golden age way, in a plot-engulfing foreshadow way. With red herrings dropped in characters' thoughts that are really unworthy of the work put into building these characters into complex people. ( )

I've been reading these books in order and this is the 12 in the series. In my opinion, this is the best so far. The pace was steady and the plot was tight, almost entirely focusing on the crime. While reading, as I'm sure many did while reading this book, I thought Gamache had lost his head with some of situations that he set up. He appeared to be fully conscious that he might be letting loose the "dogs of war", and at the same time jeopardizing the lives of his family, friends, and colleagues. As usual, Louise Penny didn't enlighten us as to what was going on in Gamache's head, so when the motive for the crime was revealed, it blew me away. I must remember to expect the unexpected with this author. After retiring from the Surete, Gamache has been retired and living with his wife Renn-Marie in their beloved Three Pines. Knowing that his work is not done, he accepts the position of Commander of the Surete Training College where he knows he must go in order to continue his search for corruption in the Surete is somehow at that Organization. It's a very dangerous place this college, and the Assistant Dean is at the heart of the corruption, and Gamache has to prove it. At the same time Gamache and his Three Pines friends have found an old map that had been hidden in the wall of the Bistro, and this hand-drawn map is also seen in the stained glass window of the chapel in Three Pines. The window depicts three young men heading off to fight in WWI, and that map is actually in the stained glass window, and in the pocket of one these men. The two mysteries converge and it becomes apparent that the old map is of great significance to Three Pines and to the murder at the College. I loved the intricacies of this novel, and I just couldn't put it down. I listened to it on audiobook, and found that a wonderful way to enjoy this book. I can't wait to read the next book in the series. ( )

This complex novel deals with universal themes of compassion, weakness in the face of temptation, forgiveness, and the danger of falling into despair and cynicism over apparently insurmountable evils.
