Author(s): Louise Penny
Now published in paperback and ebook as A Fatal Grace
The award-winning second novel from worldwide phenomenon and number one New York Times bestseller Louise Penny.
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...
'Chief Superintendent Armand Gamache of the Quebec police is one of the most interesting detectives in crime fiction' The Times
'A cracking storyteller, who can create fascinating characters, a twisty plot and wonderful surprise endings' Ann Cleeves
The second Inspector Gamache novel, reissued and repackaged by Sphere
