Riassunto: No one liked CC de Poitiers. Not her quiet, ineffectual husband. Not the pallid, spineless photographer she'd been cheating on him with. Not even her tremendously fat, silent eleven-year-old daughter Crie, dubbed "Brie" by her hateful classmates. And certainly none of the residents of Three Pines, a tiny village south of Montreal, each of whom CC had recently managed to offend with one callous and insensitive act or another. And therein lies the challenge for the brilliant inspector Armand Gamache of the Sûreté du Quebec, called once again from his headquarters in Montreal to investigate murder in this breathtaking hamlet. CC has been literally cooked alive in an apparent electrical accident on a local frozen lake, and everyone in town has a motive, even the inspector's good friends. The kind, compassionate, and whip-smart detective must employ all his talents, not least his ability to blend seamlessly into small-town life, to identify the calculating killer lurking within the pastoral landscape that is Three Pines.
From the Back Cover:
Welcome back to Three Pines where the villagers are preparing for a traditional country Christmas...and murder.
A FATAL GRACE Gamache digs beneath the surface of Three Pines to find where the real secrets are buried. But other troubles lie ahead for the detective. It seems he has some enemies of his own...and with the coming of the bitter winter winds, something far more chilling is in store.
When Chief Inspector Armand Gamache is called to investigate a woman’s death, it doesn’t take long for him to realize that no love was lost on Miss de Poitiers. But even if everyone hated her—her husband, lover, and daughter among them—how is it that no one saw her get electrocuted in the middle of a frozen lake in the center of town?
“This is a fine mystery in the classic Agatha Christie style and it is sure to leave fans wanting more.”—Booklist
“The cozy mystery has a graceful practitioner...in Louise Penny.” —The New York Times
