Reviews

"A rare treat." --People magazine"It's hard to decide what provides the most pleasure in this enjoyable book: Gamache, a shrewd and kindly man constantly surprised by homicide; the village, which sounds at first like an ideal place to escape from civilization; or the clever and carefully constructed plot." --Chicago Tribune"Cerebral, wise and compassionate, Gamache is destined for stardom. Don't miss this stellar debut." --Kirkus Reviews (starred review)"Terrific. Like a virtuoso, Penny plays a complex variation on the theme of the clue hidden in plain sight." --Publishers Weekly (starred review)"A gem of a book." --Booklist (starred review)"[An] auspicious debut... [Penny's] deceptively simple style masks the complex patterns of a well-devised plot." --Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review"A perfectly executed traditional mystery." --Denver Post"A stellar debut novel. The setting is entrancing... Well done!" --Deadly Pleasures"A gem of a debut novel--clever, charming, with perceptively realized characters... and the enormously appealing Chief Inspector Armand Gamache. I can't wait for the next installment." --Deborah Crombie, author of Water Like a Stone"An excellent, subtle plot full of understanding of the deeper places in human nature, and many wise observations that will enrich the reader long after the pages are closed." --Anne Perry, author of Long Spoon Lane"Georges Simenon kept Maigret going for over a hundred books. It will be a delight for all of us who love detective fiction if Louise Penny can stay around long enough to do the same for Gamache." --Reginald Hill, author of The Stranger House"Still Life is a masterpiece of a traditional drawing room mystery, repainted in the autumnal colors of the Canadian countryside. Louise Penny is a storytelling artist." --Julia Spencer-Fleming, author of To Darkness and to Death"What a joy it is to discover a detective like Armand Gamache, strong, calm and charismatic and at work on a good mystery in a believable setting." --Peter Lovesey, author of The Circle"What a joy to read a crime novel written with such skill and integrity, strong on character and atmosphere...I couldn't put it down." --Margaret Yorke, author of False Pretences"Still Life is a lovely, clever book and I hope I shall be reading a lot more by Louise Penny!" --Ann Granger, author of That Way Murder Lies
