Still Life

Still Life

Louise Penny

Winner of the hot Blood Dagger, Arthur Ellis, Barry, Anthony, and Dilys awards.

Chief Inspector Armand Gamache of the Surêté du Québec and his crew of investigators are referred to as in to the scene of a suspicious dying in a rural village south of Montreal. Jane Neal, a neighborhood fixture within the tiny hamlet of 3 Pines, simply north of the U.S. border, has been stumbled on useless within the woods. The locals are sure it is a tragic looking coincidence and not anything extra, yet Gamache smells whatever foul in those distant woods, and is quickly definite that Jane Neal died by the hands of somebody even more sinister than a slipshod bowhunter.

Still Life introduces not just an attractive sequence hero in Inspector Gamache, who instructions his forces--and this series--with integrity and quiet braveness, but in addition a profitable and proficient new author of conventional mysteries within the individual of Louise Penny.
