The Brutal Telling

Another great Louise Penny novel. In The Brutal Telling we see a local Three Pine’s resident, Olivier, secretly visiting an old hermit. (Spoilers) It pained Chief Inspector Gamache and Inspector Beauvoir, but all the evidence pointed to their favorite bistro owner and Olivier was arrested and convicted of killing the old man in the woods for his beautiful treasure. I’ve been wanting to read this book, since in many later books this crime is referenced as the reason why Gamache and Olivier have such strained relationship.

The next novel in the series, must pick up with this crime as well, since I know how this story ultimately turns out.

Great story!
