Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Ralph Cosham

Mystery & Suspense • 13 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2012

Inspector Gamache and his partner, Beauvoir, journey to a monastery in remote Québec where the 24 cloistered monks, who specialize in plainchant, never receive visitors—that is, until one of them is murdered. Ralph Cosham expertly presents Penny's writing, portraying Gamache's quietly thoughtful style and Beauvoir's earthy personality and giving each monk distinction and humanity. To add to the intrigue, conflict is not limited to the monks when old scores within the Sûreté intrude as the investigation progresses. Québécois accents and a sprinkling of French words flow seamlessly amid the story and add greatly to the listening pleasure. S.G.B.
