|Summary, etc.:||"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 fist day of his new job, the map eventually leads him to shattering secrets. To an old friend and older adversary. It leads to the former Chief of Homicide for the Súreté du Québec to places even he is afraid to go. But must. And there he finds four young cadets in the Súreté 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 lineup. And yet she is in the academy. A protégée of the murdered professor. For both Amelia Choquet and Armand Gamache, the time has come for a great reckoning."--|

*Starred Review* Following his decades-long career of tracking down murderers, former chief inspector Armand Gamache has retired to the village of Three Pines to recuperate. Coaxed out of retirement to become the commander of the famed SÃ»retÃ© Academy du QuebÃ©c, he must not only train the newest cadets but also deal with the perceived corruption that has plagued the academy under a sadistic and manipulating professor, Leduc. When Leduc is found murdered, Gamache becomes the prime suspect. Those who have been enthusiastic followers of Inspector Gamache will not be disappointed in this twelfth series entry. But what makes this an especially extraordinary listen is the narration of the talented Bathurst. By using various realistic voices and impeccable nuances to portray all of the central charactersâGamache; his loving and intelligent wife, Reine-Marie; his estranged best friend; and othersâeach is fully recognized to his or her wide emotional range. Furthermore, careful pacing of this exquisitely multilayered novel helps to propel this ingenious and atmospheric crime read forward, delivering its unexpected, powerful conclusion.
