A #1 New York Times Bestselling Author
A Chief Inspector Gamache Novel

Tricia and Angelica leave Booktown behind for a pleasure cruise, but they’re going to need their life jackets because a murderer has also booked passage . . .

When an intricate old map is found stuffed into the walls of the bistro in Three Pines, it seems no more than a curiosity. But the closer the villagers look, the stranger it becomes. Given to Armand Gamache as a gift the first day of his new job, the map eventually leads him to shattering secrets.

“Riveting . . . with characters of incredible depth who only add to the strength of the plot.”
