Summary, etc.: Christmas is approaching, and in Quebec it's a time of dazzling snowfalls, bright lights, and gatherings with friends in front of blazing hearths. But shadows are falling on the usually festive season for Chief Inspector Armand Gamache. Most of his best agents have left the Homicide Department, his old friend and lieutenant Jean-Guy Beauvoir hasn't spoken to him in months, and hostile forces are lining up against him.

    *Starred Review* Through Cosham's masterful narration, we feel every threat to Gamache and the members of his team as well as to the residents of Three Pines. Listeners might quibble that Cosham's Gamache speaks with an English accent, rather than French, but few would deny his skill at placing listeners right with Gamache in the middle of the action as he investigates two murders—a death in a traffic accident and the equally mysterious death of the last of the famous quintuplets born during the Great Depression. All the while, Gamache, with allies in tow, covertly provokes the final confrontation with his nemesis, the head of the Sûreté and author of a nefarious plan to destroy more than just Gamache's career. As always, Cosham applies his remarkable vocal talents to channel a range of characters from both the mostly French-speaking department and the Canadian denizens of Three Pines. His reading effectively captures the edgy and emotionally charged intensity as the story unfolds, building to the dramatic conclusion. In the interview that follows the audiobook, author Penny speaks with series narrator Cosham. She remarks that she feels as if she were "walking with you, not watching" the action unfold. This ninth entry is not to be missed for series fans, but those new to Penny should start with the first, Still Life (available from Blackstone Audio). Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
