Louise Penny - "A Trick of the Light"

The village of Three Pines - like Brigadoon - has reappeared again, in a patch of sunlight in the Eastern Townships. Louise Penny's 7th Inspector Gamache mystery novel takes us back to the cosy fictional town where murders are alarmingly frequent.

And Louise Penny readers will already be familiar with the regulars, the residents of Three Pines: Artists Peter and Clara, Myrna the psychologist and book store owner, the acid-tongued poet Ruth, and bistro owners Gabri and Olivier. Not to mention soulful chief inspector Armand Gamache of the Sûreté du Québec.

Like her previous three novels, "A Trick of the Light" has landed on the New York Times bestseller list - this time at its highest position, 4th place. And, for the first time, it's on the Canadian bestseller lists - for the Globe and Mail and Canadian Booksellers Association.

Here's her conversation with Jeanette Kelly in two parts: first the book, then the business of writing and publishing.
