Wealthy, cultured, and respectable, the Finney family is
the epitome of gentility. When Irene Finney and her four grown-up children
arrive at the Manoir Bellechasse in the heat of summer, the hotel’s staff
spring into action. For the children have come to this idyllic lakeside retreat
for a special occasion—a memorial has been organized to pay tribute to their
late father. But as the heat wave gathers strength, it is not just the statue
of an old man that is unveiled. Old secrets and bitter rivalries begin to
surface, and the morning after the ceremony, a body is found. The family has
another member to mourn.
A guest at the hotel, Chief Inspector Armand Gamache
suddenly finds himself in the middle of a murder enquiry. The hotel is full of

clear that the victim had many enemies. With its remote location, the lodge is
a place where visitors come to escape their pasts … until the past catches up
with them. Download and start listening now!
