Murder Mystery Writer Louise Penny

Jan 2, 2013

Quebec author Louise Penny has now completed eight of her Chief Inspector Armand Gamache murder mysteries. The series follows the exploits of the sincere Surete du Quebec officer as he solves murders throughout the province, including in the small, secluded Eastern Township village of Three Pines. 

She discusses her latest book, The Beautiful Mystery, the next chapter in the Gamache series and details of her first book becoming a CBC movie.

Also on the program, a group of power companies hopes to complete a power line project called the Northern Pass through New Hampshire. We hear from Jack Savage, Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests vice president, about his group's efforts to find alternatives to the project and the purchase of conservation easements intended to block the route.

Plus, we take advantage of the ample snowfall to go sledding in at Rocky Ridge Golf Club in St. George.
