No outsiders are ever admitted to the monastery of Saint-Gilbert-Entre-les-Loups, hidden deep in the wilderness of Quebec, where two dozen cloistered monks grow vegetables, make chocolate, and sing. But when the renowned choir director is murdered, Chief Inspector Armand Gamache… and Jean-Guy Beauvoir of the Sûreté du Québec must enter, to discover disquiet beneath the silence and discord in the apparent harmony. As the peace of the monastery crumbles, Gamache is forced to confront some of his own demons, as well as those roaming the remote corridors. 2012.
