'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.
One inimitable Chief Inspector Gamache.
