About this title:

Synopsis: Still Life With this award-winning first novel, Penny introduces Inspector Armand Gamache, who commands his forces with integrity and quiet courage. Locals are convinced a murder is no more than a tragic hunting accident, but Gamache uncovers something more sinister. RThis cerebral mystery . . . is a rare treat.S--"People." Martin's Press. Full description

Review: "Louise Penny's "Still Life" is a gem of a debut novel---clever, charming, with perceptively realized characters, a setting to die for, and the enormously appealing Chief Inspector Armand Gamache. I can't wait for the next installment."---Deborah Crombie, author of "Water Like a Stone"
"An excellent, subtle plot full of understanding of the deeper places in human nature, and many wise observations that will enrich the reader long after the pages are closed."---Anne Perry, author of "At Some Disputed Barricade"
"A cast of fascinating and beautifully sketched characters, deep insight into human motives and relationships . . . Georges Simenon kept Maigret going for over a hundred books. It will be a delight for all of us who love detective fiction if Louise Penny can stay around long enough to do the same for Gamache."---Reginald Hill, author of "The Stranger House"
""Still Life" is a masterpiece of a traditional drawing room mystery.... Louise Penny is a storytelling artist." ---Julia Spencer-Fleming, author of "All Mortal Flesh"

Book Description Thorndike Press, United States, 2012. Hardback. Condition: New. Large type / large print edition. Language: English. Brand new Book. Winner of the New Blood Dagger, Arthur Ellis, Barry, Anthony, and Dilys awards. Chief Inspector Armand Gamache of the Surete du Quebec 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.
