Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

CC de Poitiers managed to alienate everyone in the hamlet of Three Pines, right up to the moment she died. When Chief Inspector Armand Gamache begins his investigation, it seems like an impossible murder: CC was electrocuted on a frozen lake, in front of the entire town, during the annual curling tournament. With compassion and courage, Gamache digs beneath the idyllic surface of village life to find long buried secrets, while his own enemies threaten to bring something even more chilling than the bitter winter winds to Three Pines.

The Book Goddess, March 12, 2013 (view all comments by The Book Goddess)


Another intelligent, beautifully written mystery by Louise Penny. I am so glad that I stumbled across this series with Armand Gamache. These books remind me so much of the Agatha Christie novels that got be hooked on well-written mysteries. Rather than focus on the gore of the crime, the stories focus on the nature of people and their secrets. It also focuses on the good in people (the non-killers, of course). There is also a continuity to this series, which feels like you are stepping in and out of lives that continue, long after you have finished the book. I started reading this series out of order and am going back and trying to read in the proper order. I cannot wait to get my hands on the next book.
