Summary, etc.: Chief Inspector Gamache is called to a tiny Quebec village and there he finds the art world gathered, and with it a world of shading and nuance, a world of shadow and light. Where nothing is as it seems. Behind every smile there lurks a sneer. Inside every sweet relationship there hides a broken heart. And even when facts are slowly exposed, it is not longer clear to Gamache and his team if what they've found is the truth, or simply a trick of the light.

    *Starred Review* Audio fans of Penny's Inspector Armand Gamache series breathed a sigh of relief when Cosham continued reading the series following a jump from audio publisher Blackstone to AudioGO with the release of Bury Your Dead (2010). The pairing of Cosham and Penny is pure perfection, a natural match of reader and author. Narrating in an accent appropriate to the Quebec setting, Cosham's sonorous voice and rhythmic pacing allow listeners to form a mental picture of the characters and atmospheric Three Pines, a sleepy town located near Montreal. Head of homicide at Sûreté du Québec, Gamache is once again embroiled in a murder investigation following the discovery of art-critic Lillian Dyson's body on the property of artist Clara Morrow, who had just returned from an exhibition of her works in Montreal. The search for clues leads detectives into the art world, with Cosham's reading exposing the deep humanity and steely resolve in characters' conversations and interior voices. Cosham's pronunciations of French words and artistic terms are precise and accurate. Equally adept is his portrayal of female characters, reflected in a slight lightness of tones. In a subplot, Gamache's assistant, Jean Guy Beauvoir, spirals into addiction. Penny's many fans will not want to miss this latest addition to a must-have mystery series for audiobook collections.
