Chief Inspector Gamache and his team of investigators are called to the scene of a suspicious death in Three Pines, a rural village south of Montreal. The locals are certain it's a tragic hunting accident and nothing more, but Gamache smells something foul this Thanksgiving season.

A Fatal Grace

When CC de Poitiers is found dead the day after Christmas, electrocuted in the middle of curling match with no witnesses, Chief Inspector Gamache digs beneath the surface to find where the real secrets are buried. But it seems that Gamache has some enemies of his own, and with the coming of the bitter winter winds, something far more chilling is in store.

A group of Three Pines villagers decide to celebrate Easter with a séance at the Old Hadley House, hoping to rid the town of its evil-until one of their party dies of fright. But was it a natural death, or murder? As Chief Inspector Gamache investigates, he will be forced to face his very own ghosts as well as those residing in this seemingly idyllic town.
