Excellent mystery. KIRKUS REVIEWChief Inspector Armand Gamache and his wife Reine-Marie?s annual celebration of their wedding anniversary at Manoir Bellechasse is rudely disturbed by murder.Bellechasse, that resplendent former home of Robber Barons, is a legendary log lodge located on a lake close to the Qu?b?cois village of Three Pines, home to the Gamaches? artist friends Peter and Clara Morrow. The Gamaches? fellow guests, all relatives of Peter and Clara, include the chilly Morrow matriarch, now Mrs. Finney; her oldest son Tom and his constantly carping wife; her lovely daughter Julia, who?s serving her financier husband with divorce papers in jail; and her ragtag daughter Marianna and her androgynous child Bean. As at all the best family reunions, the relatives, who rarely speak to each other, break their silence only to hurl words like knives. Their relations grow even chillier when Julia is crushed by a recently placed statue of her father and Gamache and his team call it murder. In a case reminiscent of classic Christie, sagacious, intuitive, patient Gamache finds the family and staff the only suspects, but they?re more than enough. Digging into the family?s background reveals many petty secrets, some nasty. Meantime, sated perhaps with attacks on each other, the Morrows turn on Gamache when they discover his father railed against World War II and became a conscientious objector.This latest treat in the series (The Cruelest Month, 2008, etc.) will keep fans salivating in anticipation, savoring each delectable morsel and yearning for more.

(2009) The Gamaches are on vacation at a lake resort as are the Morrows. They are a dysfunctional family having a reunion when one of them is murdered when a statue of the patriarch falls on her. The team is brought in to investigate as they try to figure out who, why and more importantly how the deed was done. There is no indication that the statue could have been forced off of its pedestal. Turns out that the woman was killed by the hotel's maitre'd because his family was financially ruined by the woman's husband. Avery good installment in the series.

I won my copy of this book free through a Goodreads First Reads giveaway. I had not read any other books by this author prior to reading this book.

This was a fun, and somewhat interesting murder mystery, with emphasis on the psychological, more than the forensic aspects of murder. I enjoyed it, but I was not as thrilled as I would have hoped. The story promised more than it could deliver.

For the first half of the novel, readers unfamiliar with the series might not catch on that Gamache is in fact a high-ranking detective in the Canadian law enforcement system. Actually, after reading this book, I am still feeling pretty vague and under-informed about the Canadian criminal investigation and legal systems. If you like procedural crime novels, this may be a frustrating series for you. Also, there is not much background provided in this book for readers new to the series, so the series main characters come across as flat and unfinished, I am guessing because they are developed more in other books. I found some of the dialogue hard to follow as a result, since without knowing the characters, I could not always work out who would be saying which lines. I'd hope that future books in this series get more editing attention on fleshing out recurring characters and clarifying dialogue.
The mystery centers around an impossible murder, in which there are many possible suspects, but where it is unclear till the very end how anyone could physically have carried out the murder. Most of the key clues are magically produced right at the end, so all the reader has access to through out the story is psychological information about the suspects. The central family whines about how mean and nasty they all are to each other, but they seem pretty normal to me, a bit hung up on the notion of their dysfunctionality, but not creepy or murderous. The killer doesn't come across as at all angry or calculating, or in any way involved, right till the end when the Inspector works out who the murderer is. Maybe these characters are more dramatically interesting and consistent with the narrative in the author's head and they got watered down when translated to paper.

In any case, while this is not my favorite contemporary crime/murder mystery series so far, it was still fun, and I enjoyed the French phrases and Canadian setting as a nice change from my usual US/UK mystery diet. ( )

A Rule Against Murder is an interesting book that takes nearly half of the story before any action happens. Once again our hero Chief Inspector Gamache, while celebrating a wedding anniversary, is at the right place at the right time. The characters are believable. The storyline is believable. Four stars were awarded to this book. ( )

Penny writes mystery novels but just barely. The book works at a pace all its own. The writing is great as usual but be prepared for a leisurely walk through the pages. ( )

Louise Penny applies her magic touch to A RULE AGAINST MURDER, giving the village mystery an elegance and depth not often seen in this traditional genre.

At the beginning of summer the guests descended on the isolated lodge by the lake, summoned to the Manoir Bellechasse by identical vellum invitations, addressed in the familiar spider scrawl as though written in cobwebs.
