"Meaniehead!" Eve screams at her brother Henry as they start a spat for the ages. It all began over a simple toy, as these things often do. Author Bruce Eric Kaplan wryly comments, "There's nothing sillier than fighting about what belongs to whom, but no kids and even fewer adults know that."
Soon the bickering turns into all-out mayhem. A lamp breaks, then Henry jackhammers a hole through Eve's bedroom floor! Things truly begin to escalate once Eve finds a bulldozer. No one is safe.
Still Life, Louise Penny’s debut novel and the first book in a series, introduces readers to Armand Gamache, Chief Inspector of Homicide with the Sûreté du Québec.

Martha Grimes’ Vertigo 42 unfolds with Detective Superintendent Richard Jury meeting with a man who wants him to look into the long-ago death of his wife Tess. At the time, it was ruled an accident, but he has always wondered, and Jury agrees to help him. In the course of his investigations, another death takes place—that of a young woman beautifully dressed and found at the bottom of a tower. Piece by piece, the plot evolves, and the two separate cases become one. In fact, they both turn out to be linked to a still earlier case, a child’s death at a party given by Tess. Was that an accident, too?
