    I'm really impressed with the intertwining of three mysteries in this latest Gamache mystery. The first is off-stage: who kidnapped Paul Morin, why, and what happened to Gamache and his team, told in flashbacks (on Gamache's part) and in narrative (from Jean-Guy). The second is Gamache...

    Many readers have fallen in love with Louise Penny?s Inspector Gamache books, especially Bury Your Dead, and it?s easy to see why. Her descriptions of place are gentle and thorough, lifting every cover and opening every cupboard of a setting until we feel that we?re strolling dow...

    Louise Penny never makes the murder mystery her only story line; the places and the characters and their relationships are typically front and center. Now this time Ms Penny decided to juggle 3-4 story lines at once, along with the usual characters plus some--and it worked so well. One...

    The Hook - When I read the sad news that Louise Penny?s husband Michael had passed away I felt a need to read the next book in the Chief Inspector Armand Gamache Series as a tribute to both she and the man she loved. The following links lead to two of Louise Penny?s newsletters. ...

    I was hoping to have discovered a "new" series to enjoy since this book is apparently the sixth Inspector Gamache adventure but sadly I was not that impressed. I enjoyed the tidbits of Quebec history and the descriptions of Old Quebec but the story itself lagged and finally just became...

    I love the setting of Three Pines and the characters I revisit with each book. However, this instalment in the series wove together 3 investigations, shifting back and forth, which made it confusing. Most loved it. Did I miss something? ...

    3.5 stars I won this book in a Goodreads giveaway. In this sixth book in the series, Chief Inspector Armand Gamache of the Suret de Qubec and his associate, Inspector Jean-Guy Beauvoir, are recovering from severe injuries incurred during a recent police action. While they...

    Another superb Chief Inspector Gamache story ... actually three stories blended with exquisite control in Penny's hands. One part concerns a murder in Quebec City, with enough local color to make me want to visit the city again. A second part re-investigates a murder from a previous no...

    What a heartbreaking, amazing episode! Bury Your Dead is the 6th in the Chief Inspector Armand Gamache series and is closely linked with the previous book, The Brutal Telling. This is a series that benefits reading it in order, but most definitely #5 then #6 or the context will be comp...

    I always hate it when people ask you, who is your favorite author? How can you possibly do that? I could possibly tell you my favorite 10-20 authors if I can separate the dead from the living authors. But having said that, I will have to go out on a limb and say that after reading Bury...

    Dear Lousy Louise Penny, You really know how to hurt a boy. You make, ex nihilo, people whose reality I completely buy into, whose very existence (in a well-ordered Universe) is simply necessary, and then you give them real, human flaws, and dreadfully painful pasts, and generally s...

    This book was sent to me as an ARC via Library Thing's Early Reviewers, and if I hadn't felt an obligation to review it, I might not have finished it. This was a difficult read for me for several reasons. First and foremost, it is the sixth book of the series and I didn't feel that Lou...

    Sixth in the Chief Inspector Armand Gamache mystery series and revolving around Armand Gamache and his team. The focus is on three separate events: a hostage event that turns disastrous, the murder of a passionate historian hunting for the truth of Samuel de Champlain, and the hunt for...

    I seldom give five stars to a book and I'm delighted to do so with Bury Your Dead. I read this at the beginning of my Christmas holiday and it was a perfect book to pull me out of my work world into relaxation. I couldn't put it down. It's actually about three crimes in one book: a ...

    Chief Inspector Armand Gamache must wrestle with the core of his being in this next novel of Louise Penny?s ongoing series. The piece opens with Gamache in Quebec City, ready to enjoy a winter carnival. He?s on leave, as is the rest of his Sret du Qubec Homicide squad, after ...

    This installment in the Armand Gamache series includes FOUR mysteries in one: - who really killed the man in the woods in the town of Three Pines? - who killed an amateur archaeologist in Quebec? - where is Quebec's founder, Samuel de Champlain, buried? - what happened recently to ...

    I forced myself to wait. It was difficult! Spacing the books in this series out made it so much more exciting. The Brutal Telling and this book must be read together. Bury Your Dead completes the previous book in the series. What a conclusion! Once again Louise Penny took us hear...

    What Louise Penny does is create a small, intimate world, while creating a sense of place so pervasive you feel you know it. Canada is rarely featured in best-selling books, and to have it so celebrated is wonderful. It is Quebec, to be sure, but the Quebec of Anglo-culture, notwithsta...

    Number six in this series which keeps getting better and better! Bury Your Dead takes place six months after The Brutal Telling and one of our Three Pines characters is languishing in gaol convicted of murder. A lot has happened to Gamache and his team in that six months including maj...

    Volume #5 sparks a profound series twist, that continues in ?Bury Your Dead?, 2010. Read it first. It so complexly connects several storylines, I hesitated to do it justice. I looked forward to this mystery above all others, because it spins an old one: locating historical figure, ...

    I just love this series. This is the sixth book in the Armand Gamache Series. I love the characters and love Three Pines. The characters have become my friends. They are so real and yet so quirky. I remember when I first started the series I thought that I would never remember all of t...

    This is one of my favorite series and I have read all of the books up until this one. As much as I have loved them all, this was my favorite by far. There is a restraint to this one, a simple, poignant elegance, a sadness and beauty which took my breath away. This story continues the t...

    One of the finest of the series I have read to-date. Penny has 3 plots going in this one which makes it very interesting and more complex which I enjoyed. One reopened case is in Three Pines with Gamache's 2nd in command, another in Montreal which delves into French Canadian history, a...

    Man oh man do I love this series. Was this one the best yet? Yes. But I say that every time. It took me all month to read, but I'm not even sorry about it. I like to spend my time with Inspector Gamache. I wish he were real. ...

    When I finished this amazing novel a little while ago, I found myself saying, "Wow!" out loud. It is not just the best mystery I'd read in quite a while but the best book of any genre. Starting with the novel Still Life, it was clear that Louise Penny is an author of exceptionally fine...

    I had forgotten what the pure joy of getting lost in a book was like. Bury Your Dead is the most intricate of the Louise Penny books that I have read so far. There are three plotlines weaving throughout the book at once. The main plot would seem to be the murder of a man who had dedi...

    This is my first ever Louise Penny and I wonder why it took me so long to discover her! I loved the quiet progression of this novel, where so much happens so seemingly effortlessly. Past and present collide in this novel, where Inspector Gamache must relive and come to terms with...
