Still Life by Louise Penny
Chief Inspector Armand Gamache of the Surêté du Québec and his team of investigators are called in to the scene of a suspicious death in a rural village south of Montreal where the locals are certain it's a tragic hunting accident. But Gamache is certain that Jane Neal died at the hands of someone much more sinister than a careless bow hunter.

People of the Book by Geraldine Brooks
This ambitious, electrifying work traces the harrowing journey of the famed Sarajevo Haggadah, a beautifully illuminated Hebrew manuscript created in fifteenth century Spain. When it falls to Hanna, an Australian rare-book expert, to conserve this priceless work, the series of tiny artifacts she discovers in its ancient binding begin to unlock its deep mysteries and unexpectedly plunge her into the intrigues of fine art forgers and ultra-nationalistic fanatics.
