Bury Your Dead by Louise Penny
It is Winter Carnival in Quebec City, bitterly cold and surpassingly beautiful. Chief Inspector Armand Gamache of the Sûreté de Quebec has come not to celebrate but to recover from a harrowing investigation gone wrong that left one of his team members dead. But murder seems to follow Gamache everywhere, even to the seemingly peaceful Literary and Historical Society, one of the last bastions of English culture in Quebec, where a man in found dead in the basement. And not any man--but the famous Augustin Roy, who had carried his obsessive search for the long-lost body of the founder of Quebec, Samuel de Champlain, all the way to the Society library. Badly injured himself and desperately in need of a rest, Gamache cannot resist the appeals of the police and the Society board alike to negotiate the treacherous ground between the English and the French in the old walled city.

Go on, twist the knife.
Canadian mystery writer Louise Penny has now reached six installments of her Armand Gamache books. This year she won the Agatha Award three years in a row -- no other author has ever done that. Her books have been translated into other languages. She's a former Toronto CBC radio host; she now lives in Montreal and writes full-time. More details about her splendid work here: www.louisepenny.com
None of her ebooks are available in Canada (hardcover, paperback, audiobooks, yes -- but not one ebook). That also means not one of her ebooks is in any Canadian library either. Grrrrrrrrrrr!
