While I still love this series, I feel the hiding crucial information from your superiors for the better good is a repeat of a different book in this series. And I feel this idyllic village has turned into the highest murder per residents village in all of the world. There are so many murders that happen here. Yes, I know that I'm reading a murder mystery, but maybe the author could take us on another road trip without the residents for once so that they wouldn't eventually feel that Armand Gamache is a curse and not a blessing in their lives. Just a thought.
