Patiently waited to finally get this and, while it kept me reading fairly quickly, I didn't find it as good as some of her others. Basically, Gamache is racing against time to find a shipment of lethal drugs he let loose in last novel... this is the back story. The 'primary' story is the settling of a will of an unknown person by three seemingly randomly chosen people (Gamache being one) and of course, a murder that occurs during this. The secondary characters are all there and as quirky as ever and it's an easy read but, for me, a bit predictable and not as gripping as some of her others.
