No one liked CC de Poitiers. Not her quiet, ineffectual
husband. Not the pallid, spineless photographer who was her lover. Not even her
tremendously fat, fourteen-year-old daughter Crie, dubbed “Brie” by her hateful
classmates. And certainly none of the residents of the village of Three Pines,
each of whom CC managed to offend right up to the moment of her death.
When Chief Inspector Armand Gamache begins his
investigation, it seems like an impossible murder: CC was electrocuted on a frozen lake, in front of the entire town, during
the annual curling tournament. With compassion and courage, Gamache digs
beneath the idyllic surface of village life to find long buried secrets, while
his own enemies threaten to bring something even more chilling than the bitter
winter winds to Three Pines. Download and start listening now!
