Publisher's Summary

A MONASTERY. Hidden deep in the wilderness are the cloisters of two dozen monks - men of prayer and music, famous the world over for their glorious voices.

A MURDER. But a brutal death throws the monastery doors open to the world. And through them walks the only man who can shine light upon the dark deeds within: Chief Inspector Armand Gamache.

A MYSTERY. Who among the brothers has become an angel of death? As the peace of the monastery crumbles around him, Gamache finds clues in the divine, the human... and the cracks in between.

Ingenious, gripping, and powerful, The Beautiful Mystery is the best novel yet from the internationally acclaimed author of Bury Your Dead and A Trick of the Light.

    "My favourite in this series so far"

    Loved the setting, fascinating history and daily life of monks, lots of tension and light moments too. I am even listening to Gregorian chants now.

    "tying up the loose ends"

    This story ties up loose ends from the earlier books in the series. Well worth a listen. I hope there will be more to come from Louise Penny.

    Story
    "Good enough murder mystery"

    Rather average murder mystery, which no doubt I will soon forget. No lasting impression there. One of those, interesting more or less while reading it, but not memorable at all. Still, it will take your mind off daily worries for a bit and if you just want a bit of mystery without being burdened by the story too much, this is the one for you. However, it did not inspire me particularly to look for the other books by this author.

    Story
    "strange ending"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I think it was a good plot, but could of been put over a b it better, sometimes it did seem to ramble on


    Would you be willing to try another book from Louise Penny? Why or why not?

    I think I would to ggive her a fair chance


    What three words best describe Adam Sims’s performance?

    drab, boring, tiresome


    Do you think The Beautiful Mystery needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Thought it was very strange how the book finished, it was if the story had run out of steam

    "Beautiful Narration"

    Well written, fascinating setting, and beautiful images. -But what really set it apart was the narration.
