About this deal

It is possible to read them as stand alones but richer when you have the full context and background.

The reviews and comments posted on this site reflect the opinions of individual posters and do not reflect the views of Cannonball Read. When Anthony “Tony” Baumgartner’s body was found in the remains of his mother’s house, it was first believed he was killed because of his mother’s will. But Benny does seem to have stumbled across the last resting place of a legendary civilisation, so it's not all bad.

Tony always acted as if you were dim if you didn’t get what he was talking about, but he had a tendency to start conversations somewhere in the middle, so everyone was always confused talking to Tony. Most of the drugs have been rounded up since then, but one shipment remains out there, prompting Gamache, with scant backup, to venture into the drug-riddled underworld of Montreal. For me it went just a little too far, possibly because he went from being someone I liked to a man I'd be wary of if I encountered someone like him in real life. What other passages about snow are particularly striking, and how does the weather affect the story? And then Beauvoir brings Katie to Three Pines, where she tells the story of how she met the Baroness, and introduced her to her grandfather, the Baron Kinderoth.

She earned the attention and distrust of the man who had the Carfentanil right away because she went about looking for him in such a forceful manner.She would give talks and lectures and would come back to this moment again and again until like a coin it had worn so smooth that she couldn’t actually feel anything about it. It’s extremely satisfying to tie up many of the loose ends after the shocking end of GLASS HOUSES but of course, there are as many threads left untied at the end of KINGDOM OF THE BLIND, including the prospect of Jean-Guy and Annie moving to Paris and Gamache no longer being the head of homicide at the Sûreté. Beauvoir and Cloutier interview Bernard Schaeffer, Anthony’s lover and the supposed thief, and he says he was innocent and took the blame for what Anthony did.

He had told her about the game development death march to deadline, working eighteen hour days in the crunch before release of their game, SphereGuardian, sleeping at work and living on cereal and power bars and caffeine. She had a theory that the fear of getting in trouble was what made her not as good a programmer and that, in fact, it was all linked to testosterone and that was why there were more guy programmers than women. I know that the book was written over 100 years ago and it was a different audience that he was writing to and the readers had different expectations than I do but I just didn't get it.It’s the 14 th book in her Chief Inspector Gamache series and finds Gamache suspended from the Sûreté.
