Still Life


Still Life by Louise Penny

Reviewed by L. Bennett


After hearing recommendations to read a Louise Penny novel, I finally picked up Still Life, the first in her series that features Chief Inspector Armand Gamache. It was a good book, lots of plot twists and inside-the-head revelations. But what I most enjoyed was the humor. It was at times subtle, sometimes sarcastic, and a pleasant surprise. The story was set in a small, remote village peopled by archers and artists. Among them was a murderer and it is up to Gamache and his team to figure out who and why an artist known for not displaying her work is found dead in the woods. Suspects include deer hunters, nasty teenage boys, and another artist. If you've not read a Penny novel before, give this one a try.
