When an intricate old map is found stuffed into the walls of the bistro in Three Pines, it at first seems no more than a curiosity. But the closer the villagers look, the stranger it becomes. Given to Armand Gamache as a gift the first day of his new job, the map eventually leads him to shattering secrets. To an old friend and older adversary. It leads the former Chief of Homicide for the SAretA© du QuA©bec to places even he is afraid to go. But must. And there he finds four young cadets in the SAretA© academy, and a dead professor. And, with the body, a copy of the old, odd map. Everywhere Gamache turns, he sees Amelia Choquet, one of the cadets. Tattooed and pierced. Guarded and angry. Amelia is more likely to be found on the other side of a police line-up. And yet she is in the academy. A protA©gA©e of the murdered professor. The focus of the investigation soon turns to Gamache himself and his mysterious relationship with Amelia, and his possible involvement in the crime. The frantic search for answers takes the investigators back to Three Pines and a stained glass window with its own horrific secrets. For both Amelia Choquet and Armand Gamache, the time has come for a great reckoning. #1 New York Times bestselling author Louise Penny pulls back the layers to reveal a brilliant and emotionally powerful truth in her latest spellbinding audiobook.

"Robert Bathurst puts his own indelible stamp on Chief Inspector Armand Gamache in Louise Penny's twelfth Three Pines puzzle. His Gamache is a bit brusque, but Bathurst also allows his softer, gentler side to show. Gamache comes out of retirement to become Commander of the SžretŽ Academy du QuŽbec. The future of the SžretŽ depends on Gamache's ability to clean out the corruption. Bathurst engages us completely when a mysterious map is found, a diabolical professor is murdered, and long-term abuses are revealed. He makes us feel Gamache's genuine concern for four cadets who may be in danger. His delivery of Ruth, the resident poet-curmudgeon, is priceless. If you haven't listened to this series, start at once. You'll love your stay in Three Pines. S.J.H. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine"
