"Robert Bathurst's intelligent narration captures every nuance, every emotion, and each of Louise Penny's subtle revelations about the unique, completely engaging residents of Three Pines. A woman is missing, her father is frantic, and her abusive husband is the prime suspect. Raging spring flooding threatens the village, and, on his first day back to work after his suspension from the SžretŽ du QuŽbec, Armand Gamache is being assaulted by a barrage of poisonous attacks on social media. Bathurst disappears into Penny's complications and plot twists, delivering impeccable character portraits, terrifying situations, and a heart-stopping climax. A BETTER MAN can be read as a stand-alone, but if listeners start at the beginning of the series, this engrossing fifteenth Gamache novel will be even more enjoyable. S.J.H.
