Winner of the 2007 Agatha Award for Best Novel!
From the Dagger award winning author Louise Penny comes the second Armand Gamache mystery set in the stunning countryside of Quebec.
Welcome to winter in Three Pines, a picturesque village in Quebec, where the villagers are preparing for a traditional country Christmas, and someone is preparing for murder.
No one liked CC de Poitiers. Not her quiet husband, not her spineless lover, not her pathetic daughter??and certainly none of the residents of Three Pines. CC de Poitiers managed to alienate everyone, right up until the moment of her death.
When Chief Inspector Armand Gamache, of the Sûreté du Quebec, is called to investigate, he quickly realizes he's dealing with someone quite extraordinary. CC de Poitiers was electrocuted in the middle of a frozen lake, in front of the entire village, as she watched the annual curling tournament. And yet no one saw anything. Who could have been insane enough to try such a macabre method of murder??or brilliant enough to succeed?
With his trademark compassion and courage, Gamache digs beneath the idyllic surface of village life to find the dangerous secrets long buried there. For a Quebec winter is not only staggeringly beautiful but deadly, and the people of Three Pines know better than to reveal too much of themselves. But other dangers are becoming clear to Gamache. As a bitter wind blows into the village, something even more chilling is coming for Gamache him

2nd in series. Really good. KIRKUS REVIEWA frozen Quebec lake, a curling competition and two recently published books form a prelude to murder.Before she was electrocuted on a frozen pond in front of a crowd who saw nothing because they were all intent on the annual Christmas curling contest, CC de Poitiers was a recent arrival in Three Pines who was heartily disliked by everyone, including her cowed husband and overweight, constantly belittled daughter. By contrast, Chief Inspector Armand Gamache finds the village enchanting and is familiar with many of the off-the-beaten-track artistic types. In addition to his usual assistants, Gamache is assigned local S?ret? Agent Robert Lemieux, who?s pleased to sit at the feet of his idol, and lumbered with Agent Yvette Nichol, who almost ruined his last investigation (Still Life, 2006). He?s also working the death of a bag lady in Montreal, a case with surprising ties to Three Pines. As his minions collect evidence, Gamache ponders the implications of a murder that involves philosophical conflicts, psychologically damaged people and secrets from the past. His own career is jeopardized by an old case involving crooked police officers. Dangerous possibilities hover in the background as he tries to plumb the mind of the murderer.Remarkably, Penny manages to top her outstanding debut. Gamache is a prodigiously complicated and engaging hero, destined to become one of the classic detectives.

(2007) Gamache is drawn back to Three Pines to investigate the bizarre death by electrocution of CC de Poitiers who was not very well liked in the town. Turns out that her daughter finally snapped after many years of abuse by the mother.

Enjoyed it immensely. ( )

This is the second book in the Chief Inspector Armand Gamache series set in the Eastern Townships of Quebec.

An especially unpleasant woman, CC de Poitiers, is electrocuted on a frozen lake during a curling match near Three Pines. Gamache and his team arrive to investigate. There prove to be many suspects because CC, cruel and totally self-centred, is not liked by anyone, not even her husband Richard, her daughter Crie, and her lover Saul. Gamache also takes an interest in the case of an unhoused woman who was strangled in Montreal.

The number of coincidences bothered me. Once again, several of the villagers are involved in the case. Clara and Peter, for example, come into possession of an important clue. Clara happens to encounter CC on an escalator and even talks to the indigent woman who is killed shortly afterwards. And it’s obvious from the beginning that there will be a connection between the two deaths that Gamache is interested in solving.

Another issue for me is the murder itself. It is unbelievably complicated, a crime almost impossible to carry out because so many things could have gone wrong and so much had to go right. That the movements of CC’s killer go unnoticed by virtually everyone makes no sense. I guessed the murderer’s identity from the beginning, not because I’m particularly perceptive but because the motive is so obvious.

I enjoyed revisiting the quirky residents of Three Pines. The three old women (Émilie, Bea, and Kaye) are interesting additions. However, CC’s characterization reminded me of Yolande from Still Life, the self-absorbed social climber with no redeeming qualities. I was also upset by the fat-shaming descriptions of Crie: “And beside him an enormous child was wearing a sleeveless sundress of the brightest pink. Her underarms bulged and flopped and the rolls of her waist made the skin-tight dress look like a melting strawberry ice cream. It was grotesque."

Gamache continues to be almost too-perfect: endlessly patient and compassionate. His efforts to rescue people from a burning building are clearly intended to portray him as a hero. And Beauvoir’s worship does seem a little over the top: at a crucial moment he thinks first of his love for his boss instead of his love for his wife?! What also bothered me are Gamache’s conversations about “sightings” of God in unlikely places – and he’s not the only one who claims to have encountered God! I must add too that I didn’t enjoy the re-appearance of Yvette Nichol who shows no personal growth.

The author keeps referring to the Arnot case. Gamache believes that his actions in that case have guaranteed that he will never be promoted above his current position. There are suggestions of an anti-Gamache police conspiracy, the goal of which is to bring down the chief inspector. Hints of betrayal by friends and team members are undoubtedly intended to create suspense in the following books. I just hope this plotline is not drawn out for too long.

I can’t say that this second instalment is a dramatic improvement over the first book. The plot with its troubling coincidences feels contrived, and characterization is not sufficiently nuanced. Nonetheless I’m sufficiently interested to continue. I’ve already downloaded the next book, The Cruellest Month, for listening.
