like PD James and Elizabeth George - gripping and suspenseful,
This review is from: Bury Your Dead (Chief Inspector Gamache) (Paperback)
This is the third Louise Penny book I have read, after Still Life and The Brutal Telling, and I can understand why she is acclaimed as the heir to PD James. Penny writes sophisticated, intelligent mysteries low on gore but loaded with character development, plot twists and beautiful writing. Bury Your Dead is the best of the three I have read - there is transporting atmosphere here, and a gripping mystery, but above all brilliant storytelling. I wanted to learn more about every character I met. Penny is writing classics in the making and I cannot wait to read her other books.
