Winner of the CWC's Arthur Ellis Award and the CWA's New Blood Dagger Award, both for best first crime novel, Still Life introduces Chief Inspector Armand Gamache and the tiny Quebec village of Three Pines. The village is so peaceful it doesn’t even have police, so when a beloved retired school teacher is killed everyone thinks it must have been a horrible hunting accident. But slowly the village gives up its secrets, some going back half a century. And soon the lovely façade begins to crumble.
