| Summary

Wealthy, cultured, and respectable, the Finney family is the epitome of gentility. Irene Finney has brought her four grown children to the Manoir Bellechasse, an idyllic lakeside retreat, for a special memorial to pay tribute to their late father. But as the summer heat wave gathers strength, old secrets and bitter rivalries begin to surface. Then, the morning after the ceremony, a body is found. The family now has another member to mourn. Chief Inspector Armand Gamache, a guest at the hotel, suddenly finds himself in the middle of a murder enquiry, and the hotel is full of possible suspects. Even the Manoir's staff has something to hide, and it's clear that the victim had many enemies. The lodge is a place where visitors come to escape their pasts, that is, until the past catches up with them.

[I]ntriguing, well-crafted....Seamless, often lyrical prose artfully reveals the characters' flaws, dreams, and blessings.-Publishers Weekly
