    In his critically acclaimed novel Under Heaven, Guy Gavriel Kay told a vivid and powerful story inspired by China’s Tang Dynasty. Now, the international best-selling and multiple award-winning author revisits that invented setting four centuries later with an epic of prideful emperors, battling courtiers, bandits and soldiers, nomadic invasions, and a woman battling in her own way, to find a new place for women in the world - a world inspired this time by the glittering, decadent Song Dynasty.

    David H. Diamond says: "Masterpiece"
    "Adventure with depth."

    Many adventure stories proceed from one act to the next in a predictable way. River of Stars is a meditation on time, history, life and death, the meaning of our choices in the great sweep of centuries. I also learned a lot about ancient Chinese society, and grew to dearly love and care about the fates of the characters.

    Chief Inspector Armand Gamache and his team of investigators are called in to the scene of a suspicious death in a rural village south of Montreal. Jane Neal, a local fixture in the tiny hamlet of Three Pines just north of the U.S. border, has been found dead in the woods. The locals are certain it's nothing more than a tragic hunting accident, but Gamache smells something foul in these remote woods.

    Sydney says: "a gentle mystery"

    Would you consider the audio edition of Still Life to be better than the print version?

    Yes, because the reader is perfectly expressive, and because I spend more time in the car than I do at home.


    What other book might you compare Still Life to and why?

    In the tradition of the greats who use the presence of murder to explore the depths of human nature: Dorothy Sayers, Jane Langdon come to mind.


    Any additional comments?

    I intend to read all her books.
