Hardly a day goes by when nine-year-old Laurent Lepage doesn't cry wolf. His boundless sense of adventure and vivid imagination mean he has a tendency to concoct stories so extraordinary and so far-fetched that no one can possibly believe him.
But when Laurent disappears, former Chief Inspector Armand Gamache is faced with the possibility that one of his tall tales might have been true.
So begins a frantic search for the boy and the truth. And what Gamache uncovers deep in the forest leads back to crimes of the past, betrayal and murder, with more sinister consequences than anyone could have possibly imagined . . .
Armand Gamache has recently retired from the Surete but he is yet to decide whether he is satisfied with the tranquility of Three Pines Village. When the offer comes for his return as Superintendent he is tempted. And then he meets two new agents, recruited when corruption was the name of the game, who have no respect for him.
