Still Life by Louise Penny
(Chief Inspector Armand Gamache #1)
293 pages / 9 hrs, 38 mins
"Chief Inspector Armand Gamache of the Surete du Quebec and his team of investigators are called in to the scene of a suspicious death in a rural village south of Montreal and yet a world away. Jane Neal, a long-time resident of Three Pines, has been found dead in the woods. The locals are certain it's a tragic hunting accident and nothing more but Gamache smells something foul this holiday season...and is soon certain that Jane died at the hands of someone much more sinister than a careless bowhunter."

I'm finally reading the first in the series. It's an engaging introduction to the interesting characters Penny created and a unique mystery. It is also the winner of several awards. I gave it 4 out of 5 stars.
