Another Louise Penny gem. Burying one's dead is a rich theme in this tale:

The fallen soldiers, both English and French, on the contested Plains of Abraham; the Quebecois body found in an "English" historical society basement; the quest to find the remains of Samuel de Champlain; the ghosts from Gamache's past, who continue to haunt him in diverse and painful ways.

Apart from the pleasure of listening to this, my takeaway was a deeper understanding of early Canadian history, especially that of the city of Quebec. It is truly fascinating to read about the life of Champlain: (Best to wait till you finish the book to visit this link.)

Not my favorite of the Gamache series, but I did learn a lot of Quebec history in this installment. The most notable feature of this book is that Gamache is tortured by a previous investigation that resulted in the death of two officers, and carries this trauma through the book. If you are new to this series I would recommend starting with a different book :)

Narrator voice was extremely monotone and difficult to listen to. Better to opt for the book if possible. Story seemed interesting despite the technical barriers. George Guidall is an excellent narrator and performed on Wally Lamb's "The Hour I first Believed." and other well-known authors.

Inspector Gamache is recuperating in Quebec City when he becomes embroiled in yet another case.
Good reader makes this an enjoyable audio.

Another outstanding audiobook version of the "Three Pines" mystery series. Louise Penny offers challenging plots, compelling (not always likeable) characters, and beautiful writing. Start with "Still Life" and work your way in order up to "Bury Your Dead" for a rewarding reading or listening experience. The audio is particularly good for listening to the pronounciation of the Quebecois words.
