Publisher's Summary

Louise Penny's much loved hero confronts a dark plot lurking beneath the elegant facades of Paris - lose yourself in the breathtaking new crime thriller by the number one best-selling author.

On their first night in Paris, the Gamaches gather for a family dinner with Armand's godfather, the billionaire Stephen Horowitz. But the evening ends in horror when Stephen is knocked down and critically injured in what Armand is convinced is no accident, but a deliberate attempt on an elderly man's life.  

When a strange key is found in Stephen's possession it sends Armand on a desperate search for the truth that will take him from the top of the Tour Eiffel to the bowels of the Paris Archives.

And as Armand begins to uncover the secrets his godfather has kept hidden for decades, he finds himself ensnared in a web of lies and deceit that threatens to destroy everything - and everyone - he holds dear. 

For even the City of Light casts long shadows. And in that darkness devils hide....

Would rather read than listen!

I have read all the books in the series in order on Kindle I should have stayed with that. After reading the series I had images of the characters in my mind's eye. The reading was irritating. I nearly gave up and bought the Kindle version. It would have lowered my blood pressure! Apart from the corny faux Quebecois and French accents, there were a few obvious mis-read words. I made me wonder if there is any proper editing post-narration. The story was interesting with the introduction of new characters and location. if you have read any of the series, I highly recommend you stay away from the Audible version.

Armand is home!

So wonderful to have Adam Sims back narrating!! The last few books haven’t felt right to me without him so it’s like Armand and all of the characters have come home

So Welcome!

I was so thrilled to see another Gamache volume appear in early September, and surprised but only slightly concerned at some of the less enthusiastic early reviews. Personally, and much as I absolutely adore his spending so much time based in his beloved Three Pines, I feel it works very well to every so often set his adventures in logically alternative locations that have been factored in as an extended part of his life in past volumes. I didn't find it protracted or boring, perhaps partly because I adore Paris, and every reference to places I have known personally delights me, and this even extends to St Paul de Vence, in Provence, where I have been on more than one occasion (a truly delightful hilltop village where I would certainly be thrilled to live, myself!) . To me, the reader is invited to share the warmth and interaction of the Gamache family unit as though one was in fact one of the family, which is perhaps part of the particular appeal I have never encountered in any of the other crime thrillers I have read over the years, regardless of how impressive I thought they were overall. Not for the first time, I found myself choking up towards the end as certain events unfolded, and this means I was totally 'in the moment' - casting aside the inevitable reminders to self that - hey, this is just a story - remember!? Loved it, as always!

Oh dear what a lot of dribble

Like the narrator he is terrific but the story .....oh hell it goes on and on it’s a terrible story I’m afraid. So unimaginative won’t read any more of her books.

Brilliant, moving, can’t wait to read it again!

The best in a superb series! Exciting moving complex and set in Paris. I laughed out loud, was challenged by the mystery, felt deeply moved by the relationships and was wowed by Louise Penny’s mastery of the genre. I listened to the story (wonderful) but am about to go and buy a hard copy too to savor it from another perspective! I can’t recommend this highly enough. Prepare to be sleep deprived.

Deliciously rewarding and engrossing.

Perhaps the best so far in the series? I even ‘forgave’ the fact that most of the action takes place in Paris, not 3 Pines. Sensational storytelling and intricate plot making without too much horror. Have come to depend on the extended Gamache and Friends Family to reassure that all might still be well.

Phenomenal research undertaken to produce an outstanding novel!

This is Louise at her best, from Musée Rodin to Hôpital Hôtel-Dieu, to th Marais,, to George V and back to the Hôtel Lutetia. All the devils visited this outstanding novel to make it that more more of a tangled web, the end is surprising as usual, quite satisfying too. I simply cannot say enough about this novel and the clearly incredible research Louise Penny has gifted us. I can only sat one unfortunate thing about this audiobook, Adam, you’ve been reading Gamache for 16 years...the D in Armand is silent, you never pronounce it, his name is Arman.

Bad editing or would be 4 1/2 stars

A great story with lots of twists (for me at least) but it is let down by some bad editing with repeated sentences.

Brilliant - both the book and the narrator

Just when you think the books cannot get any better, they do. Deservedly topping the bestseller list in North America. So delighted for the return of Adam Sims narrating who makes this series and their characters come to life.

So Happy Adam Sims is back as Gamache!!

I’m thrilled that Adam Sims is back as narrator or the Gamache series and that my previous purchases of the books in the series read by Robert Bathurst have been replaced with recordings by Adam. I like Robert Bathurst, but as Gamache...honestly?! It was awful. I could never understand why they changed in the first place. Adam recorded all of the early books and is Canadian himself. He works tirelessly to capture every character and actually puts the work on to bring the book to life which far too many narrators just don’t bother to do. He brings the humour the pathos the light and the shade with brilliant characterisation. I can see each character so clearly. Great decision by Hachette/Audible. There was so much feedback about this, it’s good to know that they’ve listened. Really enjoyed this.

Unbelievably good

I love this series so much: the flawed but lovable characters, the strong female roles, the twists and turns of the plot, the descriptions of places that make me want to vist or go back, the evenutal triumph of good over evil no matter how elusive, and I'd give my eye teeth to find an Armand. The excellent narrator just makes the whole thing perfect.

Sensational

How does Louise Penny do it? Another captivatingly brilliant book read by one of the greatest narrators, Adam Sims. I am now bereft having finished it. Please Louise - hurry up and write another. Not a whole year to wait???
