Author Review – Louise Penny

LouisePennyLouise Penny is a highly-acclaimed Canadian crime writer who creates characters who are complex and very real. Her plots are gripping but without graphic violence. Chief Inspector Armand Gamache digs into mysteries set in and around the Quebec village of Three Pines. I’m hoping to go and listen to her at this year’s Adelaide Writer’s Festival.

Colin Cotterill writes an amusing and intriguing series of mysteries set in Laos in the mid-70’s. Dr Siri, an elderly sharp-witted doctor is employed as Laos’s only coroner. Aided by a number of  unusal characters he solves some bizarre cases such as ‘The Curse of the Pogo Stick‘ and ‘Disco for the Departed‘.
