Publisher's Summary

As Quebec City shivers in the grip of winter, its ancient stone walls cracking in the cold, Chief Inspector Armand Gamache plunges into the strangest case of his celebrated career. A man has been brutally murdered in one of the city’s oldest buildings - a library where the English citizens of Quebec safeguard their history. And the death opens a door into the past, exposing a mystery that has lain dormant for centuries... a mystery Gamache must solve if he’s to catch a present-day killer. Steeped in luscious atmosphere, brimming with the suspense and wit that have earned Louise Penny a massive global following, Bury Your Dead is the most ingenious suspense novel of the year.

Not sure what is happening to this series. I really enjoyed the first 4 books, but the last 2 have been a real let down. It was nice that some of the parts of the last book were wrapped up in this book, but really it should have been finished in the last story. It didn't really make sense to shift part of it over to this book and kind of felt like it was put in simply to bulk out the book. I'm also starting to become a little annoyed by the increasingly rampant racism towards anyone that isn't French Canadian.

A real shame as, like I said, the first few books were enjoyable, however based on the last 2 I will be thinking twice before buying any further titles in the series.
