Winter in Three Pines, and the sleepy village is carpeted in snow. It's a time of peace and goodwill - until a scream pierces the biting air. A spectator at the annual Boxing Day curling match has been fatally electrocuted. Despite the large crowd, there are no witnesses and - apparently - no clues.
Chief Inspector Armand Gamache discovers a history of secrets and enemies in the dead woman's past. But he has enemies of his own, and as he is frozen out of decision-making in the Surete du Quebec, he has to decide who he can trust....
Coming soon: Book 3 in the Chief Inspector Gamache series, The Cruellest Month. It's Easter, and on a glorious Spring day in peaceful Three Pines, someone waits for night to fall. They plan to raise the dead. When Chief Inspector Gamache of the Surete du Quebec arrives the next morning, he faces an unusual crime scene. A séance in an old abandoned house has gone horrifically wrong and someone has been seemingly frightened to death.

How I would love to visit Three Pines
Dead Cold is the second in the Three Pines series of novels. I found myself immersed in the characters and setting of the village in rural Quebec. The descriptions are wonderful without interupting the flow of the plot
I enjoyed the under plots, I love the characterisation and the development of these from the first book. Familiarity with the characters spikes imagination and makes the village come to life
The performance is wonderful. Adam Sims gentle tone and delivery is in complete empathy with Louise Penny' s style. I hope he continues to perform the remaining books as I cannot believe anyone else could help to produce such a complete package
As I listen to this series of books I find I am falling a little in love with CI Gamache, who comes across as a gentle giant among men, someone who would listen to your problems and care.
My only regret is that Three Pines, Ruth, the B&B and all are not for real. When hearing these books it is easy to imagine their lives carrying on, not in a literary parallel universe but across the Atlantic in Quebec
Excellent start to an outstanding series
