Montreal’s kind, compassionate, whip-smart detective, Armand Gamache, must employ all his talents to identify the calculating killer lurking within the pastoral landscape of Three Pines.
Self-contained, this audiobook app is perfect for your commute, on a trip, or while relaxing. Based on a library-quality recording, this app was built especially for your iPhone and iPod Touch. No unreadable text, no endless scrolling on a tiny screen. The audio is of higher-than-normal quality, making for a great listening experience that will not tire your ears or grate on your nerves.
NOTICE: This app includes the exact same 5-star recording offered elsewhere at much higher prices. It was professionally recorded by Blackstone Audio’s Earphones® Award-winning narrator, Ralph Cosham. You are not buying yet another amateur or volunteer narration. No clicks, background noises, throat clearing, mispronunciations, tinny voices or monotones will be found here.
“Ralph Cosham captivates us with his beautiful rendering….Among the best narrations I've experienced.”—AudioFile

RATING: Suitable for adults who enjoy smart detective stories.
No one liked CC de Poitiers. Not her quiet, ineffectual husband. Not the pallid, spineless photographer who was her lover. Not even her tremendously fat, eleven-year-old daughter Crie, dubbed "Brie" by her hateful classmates. And certainly none of the residents of the village of Three Pines, each of whom CC had managed to offend.
Therein lies the challenge for the Inspector Armand Gamache of the Sûreté du Quebec, called in once again from Montreal to investigate murder in this hamlet. CC has been killed in an apparent electrical accident, and everyone in town has a motive, even the inspector's good friends. The kind, compassionate, and whip-smart detective must employ all his talents, not least his ability to blend seamlessly into small-town life, to identify the calculating killer lurking within the pastoral landscape that is Three Pines.
