    As Quebec City shivers in the grip of winter, its ancient stone walls cracking in the cold, Chief Inspector Armand Gamache plunges into the strangest case of his celebrated career. A man has been brutally murdered in one of the city’s oldest buildings - a library where the English citizens of Quebec safeguard their history. And the death opens a door into the past, exposing a mystery that has lain dormant for centuries... a mystery Gamache must solve if he’s to catch a present-day killer.

    Story

    Why would they not use Ralph Cosham to narrate this book. The major reason that I preferred obtaining Louise Penny book in Audible format is because of the magical quality of Ralph Cosham's voice gives to the stories. That voice lifts the story above being just a narrated story to being a gateway to Three Pines.

    Although the story itself was up to the fantastic level that Penny always creates, the unexpected nature of Adam Sims voice (good in it's own right, but incongruant to the Three Pines Mysteries) made the overall quality of this audible edition disquiet.

    "If Robert Littell didn't invent the American spy novel," says Tom Clancy, "he should have." In this spectacular Cold-War-as-Alice-in-Wonderland epic, Littell, "the American le Carre," takes us down the rabbit hole and into the labyrinthine world of espionage that has been the CIA for the last half-century. "Ostensibly a single novel, The Company can also be listened to as an anthology of cracking good spy stories," says (Publishers Weekly).

    Overall

    I was unsure when I started listening, hearing a lot of russian names and having difficulty following the plot line. But then in a jolt I was caught up in a story line that not only gave great detail to four different eras, but to four main characters, and then some. It was a thrill being allowed to follow these characters, on both sides, as they worked their way through such scary and uncertain times. I did not live through these times, but I have a better understanding of what was happening then, both in front of and behind the curtains.
