Shortlisted numerous times for the Audie Award and winning for Kingdom of the Blind, Robert Bathurst has proven to be the ideal reader for Louise Penny's Agatha and Anthony Award winning mystery series. He brings Chief Inspector Armand Gamache to life, and the four novels here form a fascinating arc; Gamache is elevated to the head of the Sûreté du Québec, only to be ousted in disgrace, and must find his way back to being the exemplary investigator he once was.A cloaked, masked figure appears on the village green in Three Pines one cold November day, and Armand Gamache and his neighbors are first curious, then wary. Through rain and sleet, it stands unmoving, staring ahead. Gamache suspects this being has deep roots and a dark purpose, yet what can he do? Only watch and wait. But when the figure vanishes overnight and a body is discovered, it falls to Gamache to discover if a debt has been paid—or levied. This 13th Gamache investigation won an Agatha Award and Robert Bathurst's reading was an Audie Award finalist for both Best Mystery and Best Male Narrator.
