‘Louise Penny’s writing is intricate, beautiful and compelling’ PETER JAMES

There is more to solving a crime than following the clues.

Welcome to Chief Inspector Gamache’s world of facts and feelings.

Winter in Three Pines, and the sleepy village is carpeted in snow. It’s a time of peace and goodwill – until a scream pierces the biting air. A spectator at the annual Boxing Day curling match has been fatally electrocuted. Despite the large crowd, there are no witnesses and – apparently – no clues.

Chief Inspector Armand Gamache discovers a history of secrets and enemies in the dead woman’s past. But he has enemies of his own, and as he is frozen out of decision-making in the Surete du Quebec, he has to decide who he can trust…

Ten million readers.
Three pines.
One inimitable Chief Inspector Gamache.
