Laura P. said:
I found the mystery going on in this book only mildly interesting. What kept me listening was the ongoing story with the shootout that happened between books and the release of the video of the incident and how it has affected the characters and their relationships. Gamache and Beauvoir have reached an impasse by the end and their future is uncertain even as they may someday be related.

Armand Gamache and Jean-Guy Beauvoir arrive at a remote Quebec monastery recently made famous for a recording of Gregorian chants where one of the 24 monks has been murdered. The men uncover much about the lives of these mostly silent—except for singing—monks but are stymied for a motive and the curious piece of old music that the choirmaster monk who died had clutched in his hand. There’s a secondary story of unresolved police issues that somewhat parallel the main story. But, I’ve not read that earlier book so was a bit at a loss. Still, a very good whodunit.
