This was an excellent Three Pines novel. It was different from many of the others because it didn't center as much on solving a murder or the Three Pines community. It was centered on Armand Gamache and his actions to defeat the powerful drug cartels.
There is a murder, of course. The story is presented in two periods. It begins with Gamache as a witness in a Three Pines murder trial and his current actions. We go back in time to the period of the murder.
Although the suspense is great and it's completely unclear what Gamache's plan will unleash, it's also a moralistic story. What would you sacrifice to achieve an important goal? Should anyone have that power? ( )

Great plotting and concept, although the switching back and forth in time distracted from the reading experience. ( )

A mysterious person in a black costume appears in the small village of Three Pines. Then a woman is murdered. ( )

A murder in Three Pines concludes the overwatch of a Spanish mythical character, the Cobrador del Frac. This crime serves as a major distraction as Gamache struggles, personally and professionally, to implement a major strategic stroke against the drug cartels that have infested Quebec. A very complex orchestration handled very nicely by this very good author. Interest and suspense are sustained quite well as the venues change during to support. An excellent entry in this very good series. ( )

Book description
When a mysterious figure appears in Three Pines one cold November day, Armand Gamache and the rest of the villagers are at first curious. Then wary. Through rain and sleet, the figure stands unmoving, staring ahead.

From the moment its shadow falls over the village, Gamache, now Chief Superintendent of the Sûreté du Québec, suspects the creature has deep roots and a dark purpose. Yet he does nothing. What can he do? Only watch and wait. And hope his mounting fears are not realized.

But when the figure vanishes overnight and a body is discovered, it falls to Gamache to discover if a debt has been paid or levied.

Months later, on a steamy July day as the trial for the accused begins in Montréal, Chief Superintendent Gamache continues to struggle with actions he set in motion that bitter November, from which there is no going back. More than the accused is on trial. Gamache’s own conscience is standing in judgment. Amazon
