Summary
In this seventh Gamache mystery, Penny returns to Three Pines to tell the story of Clara, a local artist who finally gets a break with a show at a famous Montreal gallery. When a body is found at her house, Detective Gamache and his sidekick Beauvoir are called in to find the killer. Still recovering from the terrorist attack that injured them both physically and psychologically, they must wade through the egos and money grubbing of the art world to get to the truth.
Critique
This is another great effort by Penny. As she lures us into the mystery, she has her characters discuss what makes great art, the competition among artists, and the question of money and art. Highly recommended.
