There's an art to catching a killer
The picturesque village of Three Pines is a safe haven to its residents - no one can remember the last time they needed a policeman. So when the body of a well-loved local woman is discovered on Thanksgiving Sunday, lying spread-eagled in the maple woods, the community is shocked. There must have been an accident - a hunter's arrow gone astray. No one could want Jane Neal dead.
In a long and distinguished career with the Sûreté du Quebec, Chief Inspector Armand Gamache has learned to look for snakes in Eden. And as he sets about his investigation, he finds that something dark is lurking behind the white picket fences. If Gamache watches closely enough, Three Pines will begin to give up its secrets...

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.
LOUISE PENNY is the #1 New York Times and Globe and Mail bestselling author of ten Chief Inspector Armand Gamache novels. She has won numerous awards, including a CWA Dagger and the Agatha Award (five times) and was a finalist for the Edgar Award for Best Novel. She lives in a small village south of Montréal.
