Author(s): Louise Penny
In the green depths of spring, morning breaks on a woman splayed in a bed of flowers ? her eyes wide, her neck broken. Her death is a mystery; so is the woman herself. But as Chief Inspector Armand Gamache and his team peer into the dark corners of the victim's past, they expose a secret that rots at the very heart of their community ? a secret that will implicate someone they've trusted for years. And as Gamache knows too well, in the flickering shadows of death, the truth may be just a trick of the light.
Louise Penny is the New York Times bestselling author of five previous Gamache novels, including Still Life, which won the CWA John Creasey Dagger in 2006. Recipient of virtually every existing award for crime fiction, she lives in a small village south of Montreal.
