Editor Reviews
From the Back Cover Chief Inspector Armand Gamache of the Surêté du Québec and his team of investigators are called in to the scene of a suspicious death in a rural village south of Montreal. Jane Neal, a local fixture in the tiny hamlet of Three Pines, just north of the U.S. border, has been found dead in the woods. The locals are certain it's a tragic hunting accident and nothing more, but Gamache smells something foul in these remote woods, and is soon certain that Jane Neal died at the hands of someone much more sinister than a careless bowhunter. Still Life introduces not only an engaging series hero in Inspector Gamache, who commands his forces---and this series---with integrity and quiet courage, but also a winning and talented new writer of traditional mysteries in the person of Louise Penny.

Still Life is the first in a series that will number 17 when The Madness of Crowds comes out on August 24, 2021. Yes, I've preordered it, as I have every one after discovering this uniquely talented writer. Inspector Gamache rivals Poirot's intelligence and Sherlock Holmes ability to see fine detail where others see only broad outlines but it's his kindness, his humanity, his love of family, friends and colleagues that sets him apart and above. Louise Penny writes murder mysteries that expose the humanity of those charged with solving them and the people in their orbit. Still Life is finely written by an author with a scholar's vocabulary and the inclusion of italicized Quebecois French phrases (which continues throughout the series) makes this a delightful, if overall depressing read. Yes, Still Life is depressing, not a book to read in bed if you desire pleasant dreams; nonetheless, the characters and plotline will have you dashing to acquire book two as you fall down the rabbit hole! As an avid mystery reader, I absolutely despise being able to guess the ending and I'm delighted to report that it hasn't happened yet in Ms. Penny's first 16 books. Plus, I can now cuss fluently in Quebecois French!
