The highly acclaimed seventh novel in the bestselling Chief Inspector Gamache series, by international phenomenon and number one New York Times bestseller Louise Penny.
In the green depths of spring, morning breaks on a woman splayed in a bed of flowers - her eyes wide, her neck broken.
Her death is a mystery; so is the woman herself. But as Chief Inspector Armand Gamache and his team peer into the dark corners of the victim's past, they expose a secret that rots at the very heart of their community - a secret that will implicate someone they've trusted for years. And as Gamache knows too well, in the flickering shadows of death, the truth may be just a trick of the light.
'Stellar . . . With her smart plot and fascinating, nuanced characters, Penny proves again that she is one of our finest writers' (People Magazine)
