EVENT OVERVIEW:  Louise Penny, Internationally Bestselling Mystery Author will Present her New Hardcover A Great Reckoning: A Chief Inspector Armand Gamache Mystery.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:  Louise Penny a Former CBC Radio Journalist, is the #1 New York TimesGlobe and Mail Bestselling Author of 11 Chief Inspector Armand Gamache Novels.  She has been awarded the John Creasey Dagger, Nero, Macavity and Barry Awards, as well as two each of the Arthur Ellis and Dilys Awards.  Additionally, Louise has won 5 Agatha Awards and 5 Anthony Awards.  She lives in a small village South of MontrĂ©al, Canada with her husband, Michael.

ABOUT THE NEW BOOK:  When an intricate old map is found stuffed into the walls of the bistro in Three Pines, it at first seems no more than a curiosity.  But the closer the villagers look, the stranger it becomes.  Given to Armand Gamache as a gift the first day of his new job, the map eventually leads him to shattering secrets.  To an old friend and older adversary. It leads the former Chief of Homicide for the Surete du Quebec to places even he is afraid to go.  But must. And there he finds four young cadets in the Surete academy, and a dead professor.  And, with the body, a copy of the old, odd map.  Everywhere Gamache turns, he sees Amelia Choquet, one of the cadets.  Tattooed and pierced.  Guarded and angry.  Amelia is more likely to be found on the other side of a police line-up.  And yet she is in the academy.  A protegee of the murdered professor.  The focus of the investigation soon turns to Gamache himself and his mysterious relationship with Amelia, and his possible involvement in the crime.  The frantic search for answers takes the investigators back to Three Pines and a stained glass window with its own horrific secrets.  For both Amelia Choquet and Armand Gamache, the time has come for a great reckoning.
