From New York Times bestselling author Louise Penny comes a riveting new audiobook.

'What happened here last night isn't allowed,' said Madame Dubois.
It was such an extraordinary thing to say it stopped the ravenous Inspector Beauvoir from taking another bite of his roast beef on baguette.
'You have a rule against murder?' he asked.
'I do. When my husband and I bought the Bellechasse we made a pact....Everything that stepped foot on this land would be safe.'

It is the height of summer, and Armand and Reine-Marie Gamache are celebrating their wedding anniversary at Manoir Bellechasse, an isolated, luxurious inn not far from the village of Three Pines. But they're not alone. The Finney family-rich, cultured, and respectable-has also arrived for a celebration of their own.
The beautiful Manoir Bellechasse might be surrounded by nature, but there is something unnatural looming. As the heat rises and the humidity closes in, some surprising guests turn up at the family reunion, and a terrible summer storm leaves behind a dead body. It is up to Chief Inspector Gamache to unearth secrets long buried and hatreds hidden behind polite smiles. The chase takes him to Three Pines, into the dark corners of his own life, and finally to a harrowing climax in A Rule Against Murder.
Grab your headphones and dive into the latest thrilling audiobook from Louise Penny's Chief Inspector Gamache series.

    I love this author and the narrator is fantastic! I've read a couple of Louise Penny's books and enjoyed them, but my French is lacking, so in my mind I butchered the names of some of the characters. I had to ask my husband for help, because I wanted to be true to the story, and he speaks French. I think Ms. Penny constructs great character development. There were one or two characters in her earlier books that I wanted to know more of their back story, but it never happened until ... I continued to read the series! I can't seem to get enough of her books and the narrator brings the characters alive!

  • Sally Johnson

    The story held my interest. I appreciated the character development. Because I have read a couple of books in the series I also appreciated the additional insights into the main character's history.
