Stilly, I think I have read all of the Superintendant Gamache mysteries by now. There are a great many of them.

Louise Penny plays a very long game with the detective and his social circle. There are rivalries, enmities, double-agent types, and things that come back to bite you many, many episodes later. She is a rather daring writer in that respect. Sometimes, I have to say, the results are uneven. There are a couple of books in the series where you wonder what sort of rabbit hole Ms. Penny fell into. But when she is on form, she commands attention and she manages to entertain well, too. You will most likely fall in love with 'The Three Pines', the rustic and rural hamlet where English-Canadians and French-Canadians snuggle together against the winter snows. Let us know how you like Louise Penny's work.
