A Chief Inspector Gamache Novel
No one liked CC de Poitiers - not her family, not her lover, not her neighbors in Three Pines. Still, when Chief Inspector Armand Gamache is called to investigate CC's sudden death on the day after Christmas, it seems impossible: how could she have been electrocuted in the midst of Three Pines' annual curling match? As Gamache digs for secrets beneath the surface of village life, something even more chilling approaches.
