The Beautiful Mystery by Louise Penny

If you like the Gamache books for the quaint townspeople of Three Pines, this one may not be for you.

It’s set entirely within the monastery of Saint-Gilbert-Entre-les-Loups, hidden deep in the wilderness of Quebec.

Ironically, for a community that has taken a vow of silence, the monks have become world-famous for their glorious voices, raised in ancient chants whose effect on both singer and listener is so profound it is known as “the beautiful mystery.” …

But when the renowned choir director is murdered, the lock on the monastery’s massive wooden door is drawn back to admit Chief Inspector Armand Gamache and Jean-Guy Beauvoir of the Sûreté du Québec. …

Gamache Series

Personally, I felt it was the weakest of the series I’ve read.

More a psychological study than murder mastery.
