"Deep and grand and altogether extraordinary....Miraculous."
The Washington Post

A New York Times Notable Crime Book for 2011
"Hearts are broken," Lillian Dyson carefully underlined in a book. "Sweet relationships are dead."
“Few writers in any genre can match Penny’s ability to combine heartbreak and hope.” –Publishers Weekly (starred review)
Chaos is coming, old son.
""What happened here last night isn't allowed," said Madame Dubois."
"""It was such an extraordinary thing to say it stopped the ravenous Inspector Beauvoir from taking another bite of his roast beef on baguette."
""""You have a rule against murder?" he asked."
"Many mystery buffs have credited Louise Penny with the revival of the type of traditional murder mystery made famous by Agatha Christie. . . . The book's title is a metaphor not only for the month of April but also for Gamache's personal and professional challenges---making this the series standout so far." --Sarah Weinman
CC de Poitiers managed to alienate everyone in the hamlet of Three Pines, right up to the moment she died. When Chief Inspector Armand Gamache begins his investigation, it seems like an impossible murder: CC was electrocuted on a frozen lake, in front of the entire town, during the annual curling tournament.
Winner of the New Blood Dagger, Arthur Ellis, Barry, Anthony, and Dilys awards.
