Wow! I came across this series quite by accident and haven’t been able to put them down since. There are currently 8 books in the series, plus a Novella (The Hangman) that sits between books 6 & 7.
I love a good mystery and these are absolutely wonderful whodunnits. The plots are rich and original and slowly wind throughout the books as each piece of the mystery is revealed. The imagery the author conjures up is so detailed that I often felt I was standing right there in Three Pines with Chief Inspector Gamache, strolling across the green to the bistro, waving to familiar townfolk.
Start with “Still Life” and I guarantee you’ll be hooked. 8 months ago
I’ve loved 99.9% of everything I’ve ever read of Neil’s and this book was no exception. Aimed at younger readers, it’s such a well written story that adults will have no problems being drawn in too. If you like storys that flow magically along and aren’t adverse to a slightly darker than norm setting, then grab a copy and settle in for a lovely treat. 13 months ago
Okay, so not really one book but eight. Great series with well-rounded characters and storylines that really pull you in. If you like Charlaine Harris’s Southern Vampire series (Sookie Stackhouse / True Blood) or Laurell K Hamilton’s Anita Blake Vampire Hunter series, then you’ll like these too. 13 months ago
