Giveaway!! The Brutal Telling by Louise Penny
"Chaos is coming to the lovely, seemingly tranquil town of Three Pines, just over the Canadian border. It begins to show its face one morning when a murdered man is found lying on the old pine floor of the beloved bistro and antiques store run by Olivier and his partner, Gabri. No one has ever seen the man before—or admits to having seen him—until a mysterious cabin, filled with priceless treasures, is uncovered deep in the woods. Clearly the hermit must have lived there and died there, and someone has been bringing him fresh groceries—in exchange for what? And just how did Olivier make such a spectacular success of his antiques business?
Chief Inspector Gamache and his team are called in, and much as they personally like the man who has hosted so many wonderful meals, Olivier keeps answering all their questions with lies. Meanwhile, the cabin yields up extraordinary pieces of evidence—from signed first editions of Charlotte’s Web and Jane Eyre to a spider web with the word “WOE” woven in it—that will send Gamache to the remote Queen Charlotte Islands in search of the hermit’s secrets, then back to Three Pines to confront the brutal truth."
LOUISE PENNY’s first Armand Gamache mystery, Still Life, won the New Blood Dagger, Arthur Ellis, Barry, Anthony, and Dilys awards; her second, A Fatal Grace, won the 2007 Agatha Award for Best Novel; and her third, The Cruelest Month, was #1 on the hardcover IMBA bestseller list in March 2008, and her fourth, A Rule Against Murder, was a New York Times bestseller. She lives in a small village south of Montreal.
