‘Ingenious and unexpected’ GUARDIAN

There is more to solving a crime than following the clues.
Welcome to Chief Inspector Gamache’s world of facts and feelings.

When Chief Inspector Gamache arrives in picturesque Three Pines, he steps into a village in chaos. A man has been found bludgeoned to death, and there is no sign of a weapon, a motive or even the dead man’s name.

As Gamache and his colleagues start to dig under the skin of this peaceful haven for clues, they uncover a trail of stolen treasure, mysterious codes and a shameful history that begins to shed light on the victim’s identity – and points to a terrifying killer…

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

‘One of the most interesting detectives in crime fiction’ THE TIMES

Reviews

Ingenious and unexpected
Guardian
The best Gamache so far
Globe and Mail
It's Louise Penny's writing which adds a glow to this book. It's not just the skill of the plot, but the way that words are never wasted and that so few of them can produce a vivid picture.
The Bookbag
Murder, an attractive detective and terrific atmosphere . . . Impressive
The Times
An intricate, almost mythic plot, superb characters, and rich, dark humor.
People
Louise Penny's writing is intricate, beautiful and compelling. She is an original voice, a distillation of both PD James and Barbara Vine at their peaks and a worthy successor to both.
