    This collection includes the first four novels in Louise Penny's SWA Dagger-winning Inspector Armand Gamache series. These captivating and clever page-turners are set in Quebec and follow the detective as he attempts to solve some puzzling mysteries.

    The series starts with Still Life, a page-turner that finds a dead body being discovered in the woods on Thanksgiving weekend. The victim is a beloved artist and none of the residents in the nearby Three Pines - a place that is so safe it doesn't even have its own police force - have any motive for murder. But Gamache knows evil is lurking... He just needs to wait to discover who's responsible...

    A Fatal Grace finds someone being brutally murdered at an annual Boxing Day curling match; The Cruellest Month finds a glorious spring day being ruined by a seance that went horribly wrong; and A Rule Against Murder has old secrets and bitter rivalries beginning to surface at the wake of a wealthy family's father.

Meanwhile, Detective Credule Grand-Duc is all set to end his life but then he comes across a secret that could change everything...

    Black Water Lilies finds one murder leading to another and has all kinds of twists revolving around a previously undiscovered Monet masterpiece; and Don't Let Go finds a man's wife going missing. He didn't kill her so why is he acting so guilty?
