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...
Louise Penny is the Number OneNew York Timesbestselling author of the Inspector Gamache series, includingStill Life, which won the CWA John Creasey Dagger in 2006. Recipient of virtually every existing award for crime fiction, Louise was also granted The Order of Canada in 2014. She lives in a small village south of Montreal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant writer Louise Penny is a Canadian treasure. I have been enamored from the first book in her Inspector Gamache series. Her prose reads like poetry - every line seems to be considered before being put to paper. This story has beautifully wrought characters and an intelligent story line. READ THIS AUTHOR!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good one! I enjoyed this one almost as much as the first one ("Still Life") - I like how Louise Penny creates a bizarre murder scene and how Inspector Gamache and his team figure out how it was done and who did it at the very end. I highly recommend it
