Two mysteries. One Canadian, the other Icelandic. Seven starred reviews (Kirkus, we love you, but stop being... well... Kirkus). I'll let the reviews speak for themselves.
Bury Your Dead: "Brilliantly provocative" --Library Journal
"One of the most elaborately constructed and remarkably moving
mysteries in years." --Booklist
"Bring on the awards." --Kirkus
"Few writers in any
genre can match Penny's ability to combine heartbreak and hope in the same
scene." --Publishers Weekly
