If you like a classical murder mystery, in the style of Agatha Christie then this is for you. It is set in present day Canada in a small unique village of Three Pines. An accident or could it be murder occurs and Chief Inspector Armand Gamach arrives from Montreal with his team to solve the mystery. I was so consumed by this story that I read until 2pm to finish it, I just could not put it down. To me that is a true sign of a successful classic crime. Oh and I did not work out who had done it!
This book was runner-up in the Crime Writers' Association Debut Dagger Award in 2004.
I already have reserved the next book in the series!
