Kurzbeschreibung

24. Februar 2011 Chief Inspector Gamache (Buch 6)
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.

5.0 von 5 Sternen ANOTHER TRIUMPH FOR THIS AUTHOR AND NARRATOR 4. November 2010
Format:Audio CD
The eagerly awaited sixth Armand Gamache tale by the remarkable Louise Penny has just arrived and I'm all ears ' literally because it is read by the award winning voice performer Ralph Cosham. Having narrated all titles in this sterling series Cosham is a standard bearer for voice performance, perfectly reflecting with tone, nuance, and anticipatory pause the sophisticated, complex mystery unfolding before us.

Moving easily from The Brutal Telling, Penny's last in this series, we find Chief Inspector Gamache on leave, time taken to recover from what he considers to be an unforgivably wrong decision. It is Winter Carnival in Quebec city, and Gamache seeks solitude in the quietude of the Literary and Historical society. However, there is little peace as a determined historian who had sought the body of the founder of Quebec, Samuel de Champlain, meets an unexpected and violent end. Gamache, fearing an escalation of tensions between the English and French immediately becomes involved. Yet, he cannot help but wonder what the 400 year old grave of Champlain could possibly reveal that would cause someone to commit murder.

Meanwhile, another murder has taken place in the village of Three Pines, and Bistro owner, Olivier, has been convicted of the killing. Gamache's associate, Beauvvoir, is asking questions of the village's residents to determine whether or not anyone else had a motive for this murder.

Could the past and the present possibly be interrelated? With rich descriptions of Quebec and a fascinating story line Penny once again captures us. Yet another triumph for this author and narrator.

' Enjoy!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Dicht gewobene, spannende Story! 6. Mai 2013
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Ich habe das Buch am letzten Wochenende zum zweiten Mal gelesen, und dabei ist mir erst richtig klar geworden, wie gut die Geschichte ist! Es werden sage und schreibe vier verschiedene Kriminalfälle ineinander verwoben, jeder für sich ist spannend und wird am Ende auch tatsächlich gelöst. Das ganze ist aber nicht nur intellektuell spannend, sondern es geht auch darum, dass dem sympathischen Inspektor Armand Gamache in den letzten Monaten einiges schief gegangen ist. Darüber kommt er nur schwer hinweg. Die Stimme eines jungen Polizisten, der (durch die Schuld des Inspektors?) getötet wurde, spricht in seinem Kopf weiter und quält ihn. Dass die Geschichte im eisig kalten Kanada spielt, unterstreicht den innerlich "eingefrorenen" Zustand des Helden. Ein super-Buch!. Kaufen? Ja! Verschenken? Ja, unbedingt!

5.0 von 5 Sternen "I'm sorry. I was wrong. I need help. I don't know." 6. August 2010
Von K. M. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
These were the four sentences Chief Inspector Armand Gamache had learned from his own Chief, Emile Comeau, when he was a green agent and which he passed on to each agent under his command in the Sûreté du Québec. They are sentences Gamache has found more need of than ever in the months since the events in Louise Penny's previous novel, The Brutal Telling: A Chief Inspector Gamache Novel.

Not only does he have continued second thoughts about arresting and helping convict one his Three Pines friends of killing a man, but he is haunted by a recent operation that led to the violent deaths of a number of officers serving under him. One of the deaths weighs particularly heavily on his mind, as he plays back seemingly endless bits of conversation between himself and the doomed officer. Gamache is a man of extraordinary sensitivity and feeling in a job that sometimes can require nearly superhuman choices with no good endings. He knows that it takes time to heal (or at least cover over the wound), but he also knows he will always carry with him the mistakes and misjudgments he thinks led to terrible and final consequences for others and to his own sorrow of soul. No matter whether he says, "I'm sorry. I was wrong," or not, he cannot bring back the lives lost. But perhaps he, with the help of someone else in the Sûreté, can take another look at the Three Pines case...

Penny has done something I'd been hoping she would: she has written a book focused more on the police we've come to know in this series than on the villagers in Three Pines. Since I sometimes find the greed, selfishness, anger, and what-have-you of the Three Pines residents to be a little more than I'd like to stomach, I'm also pleased that Bury Your Dead: A Chief Inspector Gamache Novel spends a lot of time in the old city of Québec as Gamache and his faithful dog, Henri, stay with his old boss, Emile, for a while. There, he reluctantly agrees to help the local constabulary investigate a murder at the Literary and Historical Society where he's been going to research some history.

BURY YOUR DEAD is a fabulous novel. It effortlessly intertwines three plots: the two geographically separated murder cases going on in real time and, in retrospective, the disastrous Canadian police operation that left dead and near dead in its wake. Gamache's probing in Québec City examines (without being pretentiously didactic) the tensions between the Anglophones and the Francophones, it delves into the Battle of the Plains of Abraham which shaped the destiny of the beautiful old metropolis, and it searches for answers to the mystery of where founding father Champlain might be buried. To say too much about the plot dims the satisfaction of reading this splendid work, so I'll say no more, except to note that toward the end a careful reader can savor the emotion, the psychological insights, and the often beautiful language but also look beyond them to ask questions about a few apparent plot inconsistencies. But overall, I'd say this is Penny's best book to date, and it doesn't require full knowledge of the previous novels to be accessible.

Penny advises that "BURY YOUR DEAD is not about death, but about life." Absolutely. But it teaches about life through death. Especially poignant and heartbreaking are the unforgettable scenes when Gamache can't forget his brave, slain subordinate and comrade. The last scene leaves an unforgettable certainty about who these two respectively are and were. Don't miss BURY YOUR DEAD. (4.7 stars)

3.0 von 5 Sternen Three Pines revisited 24. Oktober 2010
Von Karen Ornelas - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
In keeping with my usual personal policy, I will skip a synopsis of this book; I assume readers of this review will have picked that up from the numerous reviews elsewhere. This, then, is just my opinion.

I've been a big fan of Louise Penny since her first book, Still Life, which I adored. I've read every installment in the series and enjoyed all of them with a particular fondness for last year's The Brutal Telling.

In this sixth outing starring Surete de Quebec Inspector Armand Gamache the author undertakes something I don't think I've seen done in a mystery novel before: the intertwining of three distinctively different stories. And I'm not sure I really want to see it done again...

Although she did this exceedingly well, I found it somewhat distracting. Interestingly, this is the October choice of my online book group and we don't seem to have focused on the same story line, some of us preferring one over the other and others the third. However, I wouldn't for a minute consider not reading her next book -- I am simply too invested in Gamache and the residents of Three Pines, all of whom have such distinctive personalities, to walk away from them any time soon. Or ever, for that matter.

A word of warning: readers absolutely MUST read The Brutal Telling before reading Bury Your Dead. Although there are enough of the main points given in this book to cover the highlights of the previous installment, you will never get the full import of what the author has done in book six without a fuller understanding of the background.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Please Read "A Brutal Telling" FIRST! Another Great Read in the Three Pines Series 22. August 2010
Von Happy Reader - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
I have all of Louise Penny's Three Pines mysteries, and also reviewed the penultimate in the series, "The Brutal Telling". With the latest, "Bury Your Dead", I think the series has changed its name to the Armand Gamache or Inspector Gamache series, after the Quebecois Chief Inspector who leads the action. The town of Three Pines appears in "Bury Your Dead", but it is not the center of the action.

At times in this series, Gamache's always-patient, always wise-as-an-owl persona gets just a little annoying (though not enough to keep me from giving the books five stars). I didn't feel this annoyance in "Bury Your Dead". Yes, Gamache still has his head screwed on right and lives and reacts with dignity (though not standing on his dignity). But it wasn't beaten to death in the telling of the tale.

Louise Penny does a masterful, and I mean masterful, job of intertwining three stories. 1) Why was an eccentric killed in the basement of the Literary and Historical Society Building, in the old walled city of Quebec, while Gamache was visiting, no less. 2) Did Gamache (and the prosecutor) make a mistake when they nailed a certain Three Pines resident as the murderer in "The Brutal Telling". 3) How can Gamache heal from the heartbreak and guilt of a kidnapping gone wrong, which happened before "Bury Your Dead" opens (and during the six months since the action of "The Brutal Telling").

Penny writes very intelligent books. You aren't just given a mystery, you are made interested in arcane historical questions that you didn't even know could be important. Gamache's personality is central to the feel and tone. Here's Gamache, displeased with a police officer's crassness in light of the discovered murder: "This officer wasn't his to train in the etiquette of the recently dead, in the respect necessary when in their presence. In the empathy necessary to see the victim as a person, and the muderer as a person. It wasn't with cynicism and sarcasm, with dark humor and crass comments a killer was caught. He was caught by seeing and thinking and feeling. Crude comments didn't make the path clearer or the interpretation of evidence easier. Indeed, they obscured the truth, with fear."

The point being, not to preach, but to show how difficult it is for a police officer, who sees so much of the underbelly and darkness, to keep that respectful human-ness.

Penny's mysteries unfold in a leisurely pace. If you need a thriller mile-a-minute pace, these books will encourage you to slow down and smell the (dead?!) roses.

I thought this was a marvelous book and recommend it highly. But if you can, I recommend that you buy it along with "The Brutal Telling" and read them in order. As the first's murder carries forward into the second, you'll have a much richer experience if you've read them both. In addition, "The Brutal Telling" will be spoiled for you if you read "Bury Your Dead" first!

I am reviewing the Advance Readers' Edition.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Armand Gamache: Antidote to hectic world full of "noise" 1. Oktober 2010
Von Patricia Chandler - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Let me put things in my perspective. I am a voracious reader (Ph.D., former college professor, over 600 books on my Kindle) and am impatient with the shallowness of much that I read. However.....

It was with great anticipation, impatience and worry that I waited for my September 28th Kindle "date" with Armand Gamache. I cleared my schedule for the afternoon and evening, brewed tea, and hunkered down. Having been an admirer of Louise Penny from her first Three Pines novels, I "worried" that a 6th one might (as happens in so many continuing series novels) be watered down, show evidence of being hastily written or edited, etc. In fact, the opposite is true. (For Kindle readers: I was also very excited to see that the final "location" for the book was over 8900 - so I knew it was a long book!) Bury Your Dead is a richly detailed, examination of the weight of memories - both personal and national.

Today's world of reality shows, constant advertisement, noise at all levels is creating an audience that is more and more unable to take a breath, immerse itself into literature and let a story unfold in its own time. Is it selfish of me that I don't want those audience members to read and review Bury Your Dead? Ms. Penny's Three Pines world is complex, detailed, and full of real people with real, messy motives and actions.

I won't go over the plot here - too much given away, too easily...I do absolutely recommend reading her books previous to this one so that you feel the kinship with the characters that that experience builds. I do want to mention one REAL problem...about 2/3 through the book I absolutely could NOT any longer take the knot in my stomach from anticipating the details of the police raid whose ramifications begin the book. I went to location 8700 and read the last of the book! Mea culpa....However, it didn't ruin the experience for me as I returned to my original place and with satisfaction completed my evening with Inspector Gamache and his world.

I do NOT want to rush Ms. Penny into another session with Three Pines. I do want her to feel the creative energy and will to continue the series, however, in her own time.

Finally...on a more basic level - one of the joys of the book is her descriptions of the wonderful food served in the bistro at Three Pines and the eateries of Quebec. Would it trivialize the Three Pines oeuvre to provide a separate volume of the places and recipes conjured up by the Three Pines novels????? Please?

5.0 von 5 Sternen Complex, Engrossing, Satisfying Sequel to THE BRUTAL TELLING 13. September 2010
Von Lynne E. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
In BURY YOUR DEAD, Chief Inspector Gamache assigns one of his team members, Jean Guy Beauvoir, to reopen and reinvestigate the hermit's murder that was solved by Gamache in the previous "Three Pines" mystery. (Readers will want to read The Brutal Telling: A Chief Inspector Gamache Novel first, to be able to fully understand BURY YOUR DEAD.) While Beauvoir pursues inquiries in Three Pines, Gamache is engaged in historical research in Quebec City at the Literary and Historical Society library, an anglophone enclave in the old, walled, portion of Quebec. When a crackpot archeologist--known for constantly digging for the grave of Quebec's founder Samuel de Champlain--is found murdered in a deep sub-basement of the Lit and His, Gamache is drawn, with great reluctance, into the search for yet another killer.

Both Gamache and Beauvoir are recovering from grievous mental and physical injuries suffered in an operation that began as a kidnapping investigation and ultimately thwarted an astonishingly ambitious terrorist attack on a huge portion of Canada and the Northeastern United States. In the investigation, Gamache lost four people because of his mistakes, and he is particularly haunted by remembered conversations with his young agent Paul Morin. To help Gamache heal, wife Reine-Marie has left Gamache in Quebec City with his old chief and mentor, Emile Comeau, as Comeau's houseguest.

Author Louise Penny juggles the three plots--thwarted terrorist attack, reopened Three Pines case, and Quebec City murder investigation--with extraordinary skill. She advances all three plots effortlessly, without ever confusing the reader, and weaves the disparate plots together into an engrossing story. She incorporates her historical research into Samuel de Champlain (which is necessary to the story's background), without ever seeming to lecture to the reader. She also uses her enviable descriptive abilities to effectively bring the Quebec City locale to life. Dog lovers will especially enjoy the descriptions of Gamache's interaction with his ever-enthusiastic young shepherd, Henri. All Gamache fans will be fascinated by the new insights afforded into the Chief Inspector's already complex character.

As much as I enjoyed reading THE BRUTAL TELLING, I enjoyed BURY YOUR DEAD even more. The earlier book seemed a bit unfinished and unsatisfying, and now we know why. BURY YOUR DEAD completes the earlier story, and presents a highly entertaining new story of its own.
