Louise Penny – A Fatal Grace.

A Fatal Grace – Louise Penny (2006, St. Martin’s Minotaur, New York)

A bizarre death by electrocution on a frozen pond in the middle of a Christmas Day curling tournament  leads Chief Inspector Armand Gamache and his team once again to the small Quebec village of Three Pines.  All the familiar faces are here in this second book of the series, and Penny delves deeper into their lives as she draws the reader into the unsettling dark secrets of this sleepy little settlement.  As with Still Life, I was smitten with the easy elegance of Penny’s prose and her development of the personalities and behaviour of her characters…even though the actual mystery was fairly transparent.
