Summary, etc.: When a mysterious figure appears in Three Pines one cold November day, Armand Gamache and the rest of the villagers are at first curious. Then wary. Through rain and sleet, the figure stands unmoving, staring ahead. From the moment its shadow falls over the village, Gamache, now Chief Superintendent of the Surete du Quebec, suspects the creature has deep roots and a dark purpose. Yet he does nothing. What can he do? Only watch and wait. And hope his mounting fears are not realized. But when the figure vanishes overnight and a body is discovered, it falls to Gamache to discover if a debt has been paid or levied. Months later, on a steamy July day as the trial for the accused begins in Montreal, Chief Superintendent Gamache continues to struggle with actions he set in motion that bitter November, from which there is no going back. More than the accused is on trial. Gamache's own conscience is standing in judgment.

    *Starred Review* In Penny's thirteenth mystery featuring Inspector Armand Gamache, the action switches back and forth from a murder in the chill of November to a trial held during the following sweltering summer. Gamache has come out of retirement to become chief superintendent of the Sûreté du Quebéc and finds criminal activity in the province is far worse than he had imagined; the drug cartels are decisively winning the war on drugs. He has only one hope of claiming victory, and a controversial one at that. Bathurst's smooth baritone perfectly interprets Penny's cast of familiar and beloved characters, from Gamache's thoughtful insights, wife Reine-Marie's gentle tones, and second-in-command and son-in-law Jean Guy Beauvoir's sometimes-gruff speech; to the voices of new residents and visitors of the isolated community of Three Pines. Bathurst's cadence and pacing keep the complicated plotting under control, and his voice reflects the dark mood and building tension, as Gamache and his team must wait until the perfect moment to act. Penny reads the author's note at the end of the book, and the last half of the final CD includes a delightful and informative conversation between Penny and Bathurst.
