About the Author

LOUISE PENNY is the New York Times and Globe and Mail bestselling author of eight previous Chief Inspector Armand Gamache novels. She has been awarded the John Creasey Dagger, Nero, Macavity and Barry Awards, as well as two each of the Arthur Ellis and Dilys Awards. Additionally, Louise has won four Agatha Awards and four Anthony Awards. Her most recent novel, The Beautiful Mystery debuted at #2 on the New York Times bestseller list. She lives in a small village south of Montréal.


"Louise Penny's Three Pines mysteries are eminently satisfying due to their imaginative variety. The stories include scenes of Montreal sophistication and gritty crime contrasted with the idyllic setting of Three Pines. There's also literary appeal, quirky humor, and - let's not forget - murder. Here Ralph Cosham infuses his performance of French-Canadian Inspector Gamache with his usual warmth. Cosham ably captures Gamache's controlled musings and infinite patience, and he gives the policeman a signature style: a subtle additional syllable each time the contemplative detective begins to speak. Gamache is drawn deeply into the past as he seeks safe harbor from menacing adversaries while investigating a murder in Montreal that has ties to Three Pines." --AudioFile Magazine, Earphones Award Winner

"Penny writes engagingly whether you're reading her books or listening to them. An argument for the latter is that her characters - not the least being Gamache, the gentle, brilliant, introspective and beleaguered head of the Surete division - are enriched beyond description through the distinctive voice of reader Ralph Cosham" --The Star-Ledger

"Narrator Ralph Cosham moves seamlessly from character to character, adding depth to each; his narration, coupled with a suspenseful writing style, make for edge-of-your-seat listening. Highly recommended for series devotees or fans of literary mysteries." --Library Journal, starred review

"An engrossing, well produced audio. The avuncular voice of narrator Ralph Cosham fully expresses the mood of wistful regret that permeates this ninth (and perhaps last) chronicle of Penny's Chief Inspector Armand Gamache of the Surete du Quebec." --Publishers Weekly

"Ralph Cosham narrates again, his voice now truly Gamache's and his pace perfectly matched to Penny's graceful prose." --BookPage

"Cosham's masterful narration places listeners with Gamache in this emotion packed series entry." --Booklist
