When a group of villagers decide to celebrate Easter with a séance at the Old Hadley House, they are hoping to rid the town of its evil—until one of their party dies of fright. Was this a natural death? Or was the victim somehow helped along?

Enter Chief Inspector Armand Gamache. He knows evil when he sees it. But this time, he’s investigating a case that will force him to face his very own well as those residing in this seemingly idyllic town. Are the residents of Three Pines hiding something great and sinister about their past? Or is April about to deliver on its fateful threat?

updated on:10/5/2010

The series is back on track with The Cruelest Month - much more about the Arnot Case mentioned in the first two novels is revealed, and the story here is less confusing than that in A Fatal Grace.  Inspector Gamache is a truly likeable character and the side characters are well drawn as well.  The mystery is puzzling, as it should be, and keeps the reader guessing to the end.
