Synopsis

On a cold November morning, a jogger runs through the woods in the peaceful Quebec village of Three Pines. On his run, he finds a dead man hanging from a tree. The dead man had been a guest at the local Inn and Spa. He might have been looking for peace and quiet, but something else found him. Something horrible. Did the man take his own life? Or was he murdered? Chief Inspector Armand Gamache is called to the crime scene. As Gamache follows the trail of clues, he opens a door into the past. And he learns the true reason why the man came to Three Pines. This novella is a quick and easy read for people on the go.

    lectrice assidue de Penny

    J'ai découvert Louise Penny il y a quelques années quand on a commencé à traduire ses romans en français. J'ai beaucoup aimé. Bravo aux traducteurs! Il y a un certain temps que j'ai lu The Hangman, mais je sais que je ai apprécié l'intrigue et le dénouement. J'attends avec impatience les prochaines aventures d'Armand Gamache. Les deux derniers romans étaient extraordinaires, à mon avis.

    Great quick read

    It was the same great story telling of the Inspector Gamache series but in a quick read. I enjoyed it.

    Too Short

    Typical Louise Penny, well written but not fleshed out enough--which she is so good at. But at least it was a quick read.

    Worth hanging around to the end.

    I love a good short read that keeps your attention and doesn't disappoint. This was a perfect cozy mystery. I will be reading more of Louise Penny.

    The Hangman

    I enjoyed this story. A big fan of Louise Penny even in novella form. Looking forward to her next novel.
