Description

The CWA Dagger-winning first novel from worldwide phenomenon and number one New York Times bestseller Louise Penny, introducing Chief Inspector Armand Gamache.

The discovery of a dead body in the woods on Thanksgiving Weekend brings Chief Inspector Armand Gamache and his colleagues from the Surete du Quebec to a small village in the Eastern Townships. Gamache cannot understand why anyone would want to deliberately kill well-loved artist Jane Neal, especially any of the residents of Three Pines – a place so free from crime it doesn’t even have its own police force.

But Gamache knows that evil is lurking somewhere behind the white picket fences and that, if he watches closely enough, Three Pines will start to give up its dark secrets…

‘Chief Superintendent Armand Gamache of the Quebec police is one of the most interesting detectives in crime fiction’ The Times

‘A cracking storyteller, who can create fascinating characters, a twisty plot and wonderful surprise endings’ Ann Cleeves

Wonderfully satisfying -- Kate Mosse on How the Light Gets In
