An obsessive historian's quest for the remains of the founder of Quebec, Samuel de Champlain, ends in murder. Could a secret buried with Champlain for nearly 400 years be so dreadful that someone would kill to protect it? Although he is supposed to be on leave, Chief Inspector Gamache cannot walk away from a crime that threatens to ignite long-smoldering tensions between the English and the French. Meanwhile, he is receiving disquieting letters from the village of Three Pines, where beloved Bistro owner Olivier was recently convicted of murder.… (mehr)

I do love this series. ( )

BURY YOUR DEAD was four intertwined plots. The first was about a previous case that resulted with deaths and injuries among the police force.,
The second thread was Canadian history and the search for the remains of Samuel de Champlain, the founder of Quebec and Canada, almost 400 years after his death.
The third is the murder of an archeologist who has made a career of trying to locate Champlain’s bones, spectacularly unsuccessful up to this point. The archeologist was searching in the dirt basement of The Literary and Historical Society, a group of mostly Anglophiles trying to maintain the English presence in French Quebec’ where he was murdered.
The fourth is Gamache’s doubts about whether the resident of Three Pines who he arrested for murder and was imprisoned in a previous book was actually the killer.
Interesting word usage: “ Camache was reminded of a nesting doll. The most public face was North America and huddled inside that was Canada and huddled inside Canada was Quebec. And inside Quebec? An even smaller presence, the tiny English community. And within that?
“This place. The Literary and Historical Society.”
While I really enjoy Louise Penny’s Chief Inspector Armand Gamache novels–her use of words, the plots, the humor, the characters–BURY YOUR DEAD missed the mark. The first plot would have been better as a prologue. It explained a bit of some characters’ mind sets but served more to interrupt the flow of the main story ( )

This goes back and forth between two current mysteries and one old mystery and one recent event. Penny did a pretty good job interweaving them. I felt like there were a few plot holes, but it's not the end of the world. It held my interest. ( )

This might be my favorite yet in this series. Three main storylines/mysteries, getting to see Gamache's reaction to tragedy and trauma, and learning some cultural history of Quebec that's almost entirely new to me make this a thoroughly engaging read. ( )

The best in the series so far. This is a complicated story, lots of interconnecting threads which mesh with some of the dangling threads of Book 5. I have read these somewhat out of order, starting with later books and then going back to the beginning and reading the earlier books sequentially. I am so glad I did that because this book would make no sense if I had not read the one before. This book also informs many of the later books, and things I had not understood before, especially about the inspector's status in the Surete (that is important in some later books) now make so much more sense.

I love that I learn so much more about Inspector Gamache with every book. He is so fully fleshed out in this book, moving from heroic to tragic and back again, a man defined by the mantle of responsibility and the complexities of love and friendship. We learn the inspector largely though the work he does to solve the mysteries, his connections and sense of obligation to the people who work under him, and his family, and also the inspector comes to better know himself in the same way. This book stayed out of Three Pines for the most part, and I liked that I had this chance to learn the inspector without all the background noise of the odd denizens of Three Pines. Do not get me wrong, I love Three Pines, but separating him for the herd gave me a chance to bond with Armand in a way I was not previously able. This volume was so satisfying! ( )

[T]his is brilliantly provocative and will appeal to fans of literary fiction, as well as to mystery lovers.

Up the stairs they raced, taking them two at a time, trying to be as quiet as possible.

(p. 31) "My English isn't very good. It's OK, but you should hear the head librarian speak French. At least, I think she's speaking French. She clearly thinks she is. But I can't understand a word. In the entire interview she spoke French and I spoke English. It was like something out of a cartoon. She must think I'm a moron. So far all I've done is grinned and nodded and I think I might have asked whether she's descended from the lower orders."
"Why did you ask that?"
"I didn't mean to. I wanted to ask if she had access to the basement, but something went wrong," he smiled ruefully. "I think clarity might be important in a murder case."
"I think you might be right. What did she say to your questions?"
"She got quite upset and said that the night is a strawberry."
"Oh dear."
Langlois sighed a puff of frustration. "Will you come in? I know you speak English. I've heard you at conferences."
"But how do you know I wasn't mangling the language too? Maybe the night is a strawberry."

(p. 37) "I understand that the night is a strawberry," said Gamache, smiling slightly.
"Oh, you heard about that, did you?" Elizabeth smiled. "Poor Winnie. No ear for languages. Reads French perfectly, you know. Always the highest marks in school, but can't seem to speak it. Her accent would stop a train."

(p. 62) Winnie Manning came in next and confirmed that the night was indeed a strawberry, but added that the English were good pumpkins and that the library had a particularly impressive section on mattresses and mattress warfare.

(p. 141) ...Winnie had greeted them, given them the bilingual brochures, and invited them to join. She'd even given some of the more brazen a brief tour of the library, pointing out the fine pillows on the walls, the collection of figs on the shelves, and asking if any of them would like to become umlauts. Not surprisingly, few did. But three people actually paid twenty dollars and joined, shamed into it by Winnie's obvious kindness and handicap.
"Did you mention that the night is a strawberry?" Elizabeth asked when Winnie returned with a membership payment.
"I did. They didn't disagree."
