Teaser Tuesday: Bury Your Dead

TeaserBury Your Dead (Chief Inspector Armand Gamache, #6)Yesterday I grabbed a book from my TBR pile: Bury Your Dead by Louise Penny. This novel is one of the books I received from my neighbour a while back and I have been looking forward to reading it. I have previously read Louise Penny’s stories about Montreal-based Chief Inspector Armand Gamache and enjoyed them.

The first few pages of the story did not disappoint me and instead made me curious:

“The tactical team surrounded the closed door with its frosted, filthy window. Darkened. 

Gamache paused, staring at it, his hand hanging in the air ready to give the signal to break it down. To rescue his agent. 

29 seconds. 

Beside him Beauvoir strained, waiting to be loosed. 

Too late, Chief Inspector Gamache realised he had made a mistake.” (p2, Three Pines Creations, 2010)

I know that I am going to enjoy this read!

Have you read any of the Chief Inspector Gamache stories by Louise Penny?

What are you reading this week? Feel free to share a few sentences from the book in the comments.

  1. I have only read one book in the series so far and really enjoyed it. I need to go back and start from the beginning. This one does sound good!


  2. I haven’t read any books by Louise Perry Colline but I’ll make a note of Inspector Gamache for future reference. My most recent read was ‘The Friends of Eddie Coyle’ by George V. Higgins and I’ve just started ‘Cold War’ by Philip McCutchan.


      1. It’s a story set in a frigate on the Russian convoys – similarities with Alistair MacLean’s HMS Ulysses I expect, but I’ve only just started it.


  3. I’m thinking I too would enjoy this book. I’ll look for it. I’m reading Kuki Gallman’s I dreamed of Africa and finding it fascinating.
    Talking about her father, early on in the novel, she writes”Some of those sunset conversations are embedded in my memory for ever. so are special moments which I shall always treasure, like the times he came home with books for me to read.
    ‘Kuki, ‘ he would call from the hall. ‘Come and choose a book.’ ”

    Read on! 🙂
