The Brutal TellingBook - 2009
An ingenious and riveting mystery of murder, revenge and a cold-blooded killer, this is the internationally bestselling author's finest yet.
In the heart of the forest, two men sit at midnight, haunted by fear of discovery. In a few hours' time, one of them will be dead, his secrets following him to the grave... When C. I. Gamache is called to investigate a murder in a picturesque Three Pines, he finds a village in chaos. A man has been found, bludgeoned to death, and there is no sign of a weapon, a motive or even the dead man's name. Gamache and his colleagues, Inspector Beauvoir and Agent Isabelle Lacoste, start to dig under the skin of this peaceful haven for clues. They slowly uncover a trail of stolen treasure, mysterious codes and a shameful history that begins to shed light on the victim's identity - and point to a terrifying killer...

“Gamache knew it was impossible to split language from culture. That without one the other withered. To love the language was to respect the culture.” - p. 340
“Funny how imperfections on the outside mean something splendid beneath.” - p. 103
“Murders are about emotions. Emotions gone bad and gone wild. Remember that. And don’r ever think you know what someone else is thinking, never mind feeling.” - p. 75
Better to accept the wretched truth than struggle, twisting, to make a wish a reality.
