Penny has been compared to Agatha Christie, and while there is a surface resemblance there, it sells her short. "Booklist (starred review)"

[Penny] continues to deepen and modernize the traditional 'village mystery.' "People"

Louise Penny applies her magic...giving the village mystery an elegance and depth. "New York Times Book Review""

The cozy mystery, which aims to charm as much as challenge, has a graceful practitioner of that artful dodge in Louise Penny.
Marilyn Stasio, "The New York Times Book Review"

For all the perplexing mechanics of the murder, and the snowed-in village setting, this is not the usual cozy or even a traditional mystery. It's a finely written, intelligent and observant book. Imbued with a constant awareness of the astonishing cold, this perfect blend of police procedural and closed-room mystery finds its solution, as in the best of those traditions, in the slow unlayering of a sorrowful past.
"Houston Chronicle"

Very simply, I loved this book. I expect you will, too.
"Mystery Scene "Magazine

This book is a small and perfect literary jewel. Penny is the best writer of traditional mysteries to come along in decades. I haven t read a book this beautifully written since "A Thread of Grace" by Mary Doria Russell.
"Kingston"" Observer"

A cerebral, satisfying novel .it transcends genre, giving a thoughtful look at the human soul and the divine presence .A FATAL GRACE has a grace all it s own.

"Don't look for the hamlet of Three Pines anywhere on a map of the countryside outside of Montreal, although Louise Penny has made the town and its residents so real...that you might just try to find it." --Chicago Tribune

Reseña del editor:

In tiny Three Pines, a village south of Montreal, investigating the death of CC de Poitiers, an extremely unpopular woman apparently cooked alive in an apparent electrical accident during a local curling match, Armand Gamache of the Surete du Quebec finds that no one liked the victim and that nearly everyone in town had both a motive and opportunity to kill her. Reprint.

Descripción Minotaur Books, United States, 2011. Paperback. Condición: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book. Winner of the 2007 Agatha Award for Best Novel! Welcome to winter in Three Pines, a picturesque village in Quebec, where the villagers are preparing for a traditional country Christmas, and someone is preparing for murder. No one liked CC de Poitiers. Not her quiet husband, not her spineless lover, not her pathetic daughter--and certainly none of the residents of Three Pines. CC de Poitiers managed to alienate everyone, right up until the moment of her death. When Chief Inspector Armand Gamache, of the Surete du Quebec, is called to investigate, he quickly realizes he s dealing with someone quite extraordinary. CC de Poitiers was electrocuted in the middle of a frozen lake, in front of the entire village, as she watched the annual curling tournament. And yet no one saw anything. Who could have been insane enough to try such a macabre method of murder--or brilliant enough to succeed? With his trademark compassion and courage, Gamache digs beneath the idyllic surface of village life to find the dangerous secrets long buried there. For a Quebec winter is not only staggeringly beautiful but deadly, and the people of Three Pines know better than to reveal too much of themselves. But other dangers are becoming clear to Gamache. As a bitter wind blows into the village, something even more chilling is coming for Gamache himself. Nº de ref. del artículo: AAS9780312541163

With compassion and courage, Gamache digs beneath the idyllic surface of village life to find long buried secrets, while his own enemies threaten to bring something even more chilling than the bitter winter winds to Three Pines.
