The Cruelest Month: A Chief Inspector Gamache Novel

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Louise Penny

Narrated By: Ralph Cosham

Publisher: Macmillan Audio

Date: September 2015

Duration: 11 hours 46 minutes


'Many mystery buffs have credited Louise Penny with the revival of the type of traditional murder mystery made famous by Agatha Christie...The book's title is a metaphor not only for the month of April but also for Gamache's personal and professional challenges--making this the series standout so far.'
--Sarah Weinman
Welcome to Three Pines, where the cruelest month is about to deliver on its threat.
It's spring in the tiny, forgotten village; buds are on the trees and the first flowers are struggling through the newly thawed earth. But not everything is meant to return to life. . .
When some villagers decide to celebrate Easter with a séance at the Old Hadley House, they are hoping to rid the town of its evil--until one of their party dies of fright. Was this a natural death, or was the victim somehow helped along?
Brilliant, compassionate Chief Inspector Armand Gamache of the Sûreté du Québec is called to investigate, in a case that will force him to face his own ghosts as well as those of a seemingly idyllic town where relationships are far more dangerous than they seem.

    Yet another wonderful mystery by Louise Penny, played out by the magnificently flawed and lovable good people of Three Pines. The narrator is so skilled with his ability to bring every individual to life, he is a joy . This novel was creepy compared to the others, it was craftily done. I had a slight inkling who might have done the murder but honestly, I kept doubting myself . The twist and turns almost have a life of their own. Looking very forward to the next installment, to visit my friends once again.
